It's amazing that Burton creates a multi-dimensional environment in 6 minutes. There is also incredible character depth, considering the limited time. And I loved the "never more" line as an ending. 5/5.
'and my soul from out that shadow, that lies floating on the floor, shall be lifted never more..' such brilliant short film about one imaginative little boy. For black and white animated film, it really has colors of its own. Reminds me of my childhood or of anyone's childhood. Very simple, yet captivating&wonderful!
Meraviglioso. Per godere appieno della macabra magia che l'immaginazione di Tim Burton ha saputo evocare, è assolutamente imperativo vederlo in inglese. In lingua originale la breve storia di Vincent è narrata dalla robusta voce di Vincent Price, che accompagna lo spettatore attraverso i versi di questa triste ed affascinante poesia. Molto bella anche l'animazione di chiaro stampo burtoniano.
`His voice was soft and very slow,As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow,that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted - Nevermore!`
gothic,dark atmosphere,Edgar Allan Poe poetry elements,and obviously influence,as always,beautifully weird characters.
Mixture of Burtons vast,genius imagination,I think in a way - autobiographical,true masterpiece in only 6 minutes.
More Burton than ever. Really hard movie that despite the fact that I belived it to be strongly based on Tim's childhood, describes in a simple, moving, original and cute way how many of us had felt during that period of our lives.
