Although connected indirectly through Will's mother/Edward's wife, Sandra Bloom, Will has been estranged from his father for three years since his and Josephine's wedding. Will's issue with his father is the fanciful tales Edward has told of his life all his life, not only to Will but the whole world.

My favorite movies directed by Tim Burton are Ed Wood and Sleepy Hollow.Ed Wood is a tribute to B movies from the 50's and Sleepy Hollow is a tribute to the horror films of Hammer.In Big fish,Burton uses his original style,at the same time dark and innocent.But,the result is a good but not great movie that,by my point of view,it could have been a little better.The best thing I can say about this movie is that it has a lot of imagination.But now,I'll mention the weak things I found on this movie:the characters' emotions are not very deep.For the other sight,Burton seems more interested on showing all the imagination the film has that in telling a good story.The film feels a little cold and without the sense of humor that films like Beetlejuice or Pee-Wee's adventure had.Big fish is not a bad movie;I have to say it kept me fun and interested but I feel it could have been a little better.
