A lonely doctor who once occupied an unusual lakeside home begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor's greatest creation - Edward, a near-complete person. The creator died before he could finish Edward's hands; instead, he is left with metal scissors for hands. Since then, he has lived alone, until a kind lady called Peg discovers him and welcomes him into her home. At first, everyone welcomes him into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse. Written by
Tim Burton had asked Robert Smith of The Cure to do the soundtrack and had even sent the script. Robert was busy recording 'Disintegration' at the time, and didn't know who Burton was, so passed up the opportunity, handing Danny Elfman the job. See more »
When Peg stands by the mansion's garden gate where she meets Edward for the first time, acres and fields are visible just behind the gate, even though this is supposed to be atop a small mountain. See more »

An emotional charismatic and off the wall Dramatic Movie!
This film hit me with two main feelings. One, of an overwhelming feeling of sadness for Edward as his position is one that is just impossible to bear. To know that you are in love with a person to that degree and finding out they love you in the same way but knowing that you cant give that person what they seek, because of your hands. This was summed up in the scene where Kim asks Edward to hold her, but he just says, 'I can't'. Packed with emotion this film got to me with the acting particularly of Johnny Depp and the music. Very Cleverly written and accented, this added to the movie greatly. 10-10, this is a film i'm gonna keep for a long time, and most importantly, watch again! Classic!!
