Timothée Chalamet is the son of Edward Scissorhands (mom Winona Ryder) in a commercial for the Super Bowl
To the delight of nostalgics and lovers of the wonderful character created by Tim Burton and beautifully played by Johnny Depp, Edward Scissorhands or Edward Scissorhands, this Cadillac commercial, which aired at the Superbowl, will make your heart beat faster.
In fact, the commercial shows the French actor Timothée Chalamet, star of the moment, playing the role of Edgar Manidiforbice, son of Edward and Winona Ryder, who appears in the commercial. In the video, lasting 1 minute and a half, and supervised by Tim Burton himself, who gave his approval, Winona's voice is heard saying: “This is the story of a boy with scissorhands… But no. , that's not what you think. It's Edgard, my son "
The video follows a normal Edgard day: waking up, having breakfast, going to school, playing with friends, studying. Except that he is not "normal", and difficulties accompany him in whatever he does. Until the final "solution", obviously less tragic than the film, oriented towards commercial purposes.
But seeing Edgard's sad and sweet gaze on video, a photocopy of his father, is as moving today as yesterday. And it is a beautiful tribute to one of the most poetic films of all time.
