Charlie and the Chocolate Factory DVD, Chocolate
Who better to bring Roald Dahls adored childrens story to life than the mastermind behind inventive films like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice. From Tim Burtons opening shot against Danny Elfmans eerie score this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is recognisably darker than the Mel Stuartdirected 1971 version starring Gene Wilder. Though the mysterious chocolate factory has been closed for 15 year it continues to produce and ship candy all over the world. When a contest promises a tour of the plant to the lucky finders of five golden tickets hidden inside wrappers no one is more excited than Charlie Bucket an impoverished boy whose family lives mere steps from the factory. Though he can barely afford even one candy bar fate intervenes and Charlie finds the last golden ticket. Joined at the gates by a group of despicable brats named Veruca Salt Violet Beauregarde Augustus Gloop and Mike Teavee Charlie and his Grandfather venture inside proprietor Willy Wonkas delightful factory for a wild adventure. Each room is a feast for the eyes and more importantly the taste buds a sugarcoated dreamland where everything is edible. One by one however the children meet unfortunate fates until only Charlie remains in the company of Wonka and his curiously small workers the Oompa Loompas. Sporting a severe bob and talking in a highpitched voice Depp makes his Wonka even weirder than Wilders. While Burton adds some amusing contemporary touches (like the musical Oompa Loompa routines) and an elaborate back story he also preserves the charm of the original book. Overall Burtons visual innovation succeeds in capturing the vividness of a childs imagination but whether this version trumps the beloved 71 film is for viewers to decide. Contains 1 disc. Cert PG.
