Directed by Tim Burton. Starring Johnny Depp, Anthony Michael Hall, Alan Arkin.
Edward Scissorhands achieves the nearly impossible feat of capturing the delicate flavour of a fable or fairy tale in a live-action movie. The story follows a young man named Edward (Johnny Depp), who was created by an inventor (Vincent Price, in one of his last roles) who died before he could give the poor creature a pair of human hands. Edward lives alone in a ruined Gothic castle that just happens to be perched above a pastel-coloured suburb inhabited by breadwinning husbands and frustrated housewives straight out of the 1950s. One day, Peg (Dianne Wiest), the local Avon lady, comes calling. Finding Edward alone, she kindly invites him to come home with her, where she hopes to help him with his pasty complexion and those nasty nicks he's given himself with his razor-sharp fingers. Soon Edward's skill with topiary sculpture and hair design make him popular in the neighbourhood--but the mood turns just as swiftly against the outsider when he starts to feel his own desires, particularly for Peg's daughter Kim (Winona Ryder). Most of director Tim Burton's movies (such as Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice and Batman) are visual spectacles with elements of fantasy but Edward Scissorhands is more tender and personal than the others. Edward's wild black hair is much like Burton's, suggesting that the character represents the director's own feelings of estrangement and co-option. Johnny Depp, making his first successful leap from TV to film, captures Edward's child-like vulnerability even while his physical posture evokes horror icons like the vampire in Nosferatu and the sleepwalker in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Classic horror films, at their heart, feel a deep sympathy for the monsters they portray; simply and affectingly, Edward Scissorhands lays that heart bare. --Bret Fetzer

I simply love this film. Johnny Depp's finest role for me!
Tim Burton directs this enchanting modern fairy tale of
the young man with scissors for hands. Discovered living
a simple, solitary existence in the gothic castle on the hill.
A castle overshadowing American small town suburbia.
Depp plays Edward beautifully. As though born to portray the
gentle and kind soul who no one understands. The tenderness and
terrific sense of fun of Mr Scissorhands is a real joy.
When Edward is coaxed down from his solitary and simple life by
the Avon Lady he discovers a new and daunting world. One which is
both confusing, frightening and full of wonder. For both 'Ed' and the
community of the colourful yet insulated small town.
Winona Ryder's appearance as Kim some forty or so minutes into
Edward's life is when the drama really unfolds. Teenager Kim is not at
ease when meeting the Scissor hand's lad for the first time. But comes to
adapt to having him around the house. Then eventually he steals her heart.
Edward Scissorhands is remarkable for so many reasons. The characters
are great. The colourful houses of suburbia are impressive. The fact that everyone
in the town grows to adore Depp's Edward is very touching.
Johnny Depp captures the lost soul that is Edward Scissorhands. He is a joy
the way he plays Edward as someone who is always captivated by the new world
he has come to know. But most of all the fun Depp gives to the character of Edward
All the cast deserve applause especially Miss Ryder and Mr Depp!

He lived in a castle on a hill that looked down upon a small suburban town. An elderly inventor (Vincent Price) created the man, giving him all the body parts required of a human except hands, for the inventor died before he could finish his creation ...
Edward Scissorhands (Johnny Depp) lived alone in the castle for many years until one day someone raps hard at the door and in walks the local Avon Lady, Peg (Dianne Wiest). Disheartened by the way Edward is living, she invites him to leave the damp and dismal castle and live with her family back in colorful suburbia ...
Here he settles in and befriends Peg's husband, Bill (Alan Arkin) and their son, Kevin. He quickly falls in love with their daughter, Kim (Winona Ryder)and astounds the neighborhood with his 'chopping talents' that range from topiary to haircutting. But it soon becomes obvious that his scissor-hands are deadly sharp ...
Throughout the film Edward is transformed from freak to celebrity and inevitably back to freak once more, as the townspeople - who are initially enchanted by his oddball talents - soon tire of him. Once trouble rears its ugly head - mainly in the shape of Kim's jealous boyfriend, Jim (Anthony Michael Hall) - Edward is rendered an outcast once more ...
The final confrontation aptly takes place one snowy Christmas Eve, a nice touch for this modern-day fairytale ~ What Tim Burton has created here is a modern-day Frankenstein, loved by a few but shunned by an angry mob, who inevitably fear and hate him. Like Mary Shelley's creation, Edward is the Other, an outsider who knows little about life in the real world and finds it equally hard to adapt to his new life and surroundings; he is extremely naive and vulnerable, imaginative yet misunderstood like many of the characters in Tim Burton's films (see Ed Wood).
For the film's setting, Burton offers two strikingly different locations - a stereotypical 1980s suburban village and a Gothic castle - which works perfectly when comparing the uninspiring and viciously petty suburbanites to the lonely gentle spirit that is Edward.
