Edward Scissorhands tells a story about a robot named Edward who has a pair of scissorhands. He lived in his castle alone until a warm-hearted saleswoman break into the castle and take him home. He enters the human world afterword and experiences many joys and sorrows.

The dramatic contrasts in the film are particularly highlighted——the contrast between peace in the castle and noisy in the town, the contrast between the defectiveness in Edward and the seemingly unabridged residents, and the contrast between beauty and ugliness. In addition, the contrast between beauty and ugliness runs through the whole film. The warm-hearted Peggy, the childish and unsophisticated Edward, the love between Edward and Kim, the policeman who is willing to protect the beauty, those people are all conveying the beauty to us.

Edward Scissorhands tells a story about a robot named Edward who has a pair of scissorhands. He lived in his castle alone until a warm-hearted saleswoman break into the castle and take him home. He enters the human world afterword and experiences many joys and sorrows.

The dramatic contrasts in the film are particularly highlighted——the contrast between peace in the castle and noisy in the town, the contrast between the defectiveness in Edward and the seemingly unabridged residents, and the contrast between beauty and ugliness. In addition, the contrast between beauty and ugliness runs through the whole film. The warm-hearted Peggy, the childish and unsophisticated Edward, the love between Edward and Kim, the policeman who is willing to protect the beauty, those people are all conveying the beauty to us. On the contrary, there is depiction of ugliness, such as the unkind neighborhoods and the malicious Jim, Kim’s ex-boyfriend. What is interesting is that the more contrast you make, the more you will cherish the beauty and disgust the ugliness.

The story ends without any cosmic conclusions, but it’s pretty dismal and affecting, letting people immerse in it for such a long time. To some degree, this is really a tragedy. As LuXun once said: tragedy means showing the destruction of valuable things to people. People tend to prefer the happy endings, while invariably, what make people memorable and thought-provoking are those imperfect endings. Probably, it’s for some reasons that the imperfect endings are more likely to arouse sympathy, after all, life is suffering, and nobody’s life seems to be perfect. Consequently, the tragedy can always reflect plenty of realities. However, from my point of view, the very meaning of tragedy lies not in revealing the miserable reality, but in showing people the truth, the good and the beauty via the conflicts of tragedy and the expressions of contents.

《剪刀手爱德华》讲述了一个拥有人的心智,却有一双剪刀手的机器人爱德华,孤独地生活在古堡里,闯入古堡的化妆品推销员佩格把他带回家,让他走进了人类的世界。单纯的爱德华爱上了佩格的女儿金,金也慢慢的被爱德华的善良所吸引的故事。

其中的对比十分深刻——古堡里面的宁静与小镇上的热闹的对比、爱德华身体上的残缺与那些领居们表面上的正常的对比、美与丑的对比……越是对比就越是能突出某些东西。

美与丑的冲突对比在电影中就展示得淋漓尽致,电影中有美好的一面:佩格的善良、爱德华的天真、童趣、爱德华与金之间的爱情,还有愿意保护美的警……同样也有对丑的刻画:邻居们的刻薄和金前男友吉姆的歹毒。

故事的结局很凄美、忧伤,也很动人,从某种程度上来说,算得上一个悲剧,让人记忆深刻,久陷其中。正如鲁迅先生所说的:悲剧就是把好的、有价值的东西毁灭给人看。人们总是希望看到一个圆满的结局,可是记忆深刻的、引人深思的却常是那些不完美的结局。或许是因为不完美的结局更容易引起人们的惋惜、同情与共鸣吧,毕竟人生就不是完美的,悲剧总是能反射出很多现实,幸福的方式千千万万,悲剧的症结却总有相似之处。但悲剧的意义不在于揭露或表现悲惨事实,而在于通过悲剧的冲突和内容的表现,揭露丑恶,给人以真的美好和善的教育。
