A magical modern-day fairy-tale romance and another reinterpretation of Frankenstein, based on a drawing dating back to Burton's teenage years With his childhood hero Vincent Price as the kindly old inventor who dies before finishing his latest creation (Depp), leaving him alone and With blades for hands. Burton's pastel-coloured vision of suburbia is a thing of joy, while Johnny Depp, in the first of his six Burton roles thus far, brings enormous pathos to a near-silent role.
