Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a movie directed by Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in lead roles. It is an adaptation of a musical, on an old theme around a barber revenging for his wife, believed to have poisoned herself after being raped, and a stolen child, all of which happened while he was falsely accused and sentenced. So he slits his clients’ throats etc. The story does not go into much depth, it is about the drama and action, it is a musical after all, and is supposed to be amusing. In the end, it is. The movie is satisfying solely for the atmosphere and excellent goth esthetics. Depp proves once again how good actor he is, I was totally drawn into his Todd persona. Carter on the other hand, is an iconic human meat pie-baker and a woman with her desires and tricks. As for the tunes, there are times when I thought that they’re singing just for the sake of it, without a clear melody. But some are very good, and the best repeat by the end, for instance I feel you Joanna (or so I believe the title is).
