"El cadáver de la novia, de Tim Burton se desarrolla en la oscura tradición romántica de sus creaciones anteriores: El Joven Manos de Tijera y El Extraño Mundo de Jack. Ambientada en una aldea europea del siglo 19, esta película de animación cueta la historia de Víctor (voz de Johnny Depp), un joven que es llevado repentinamente al inframundo al casarse accidentalmente con una misteriosa novia que es un cadáver (voz de Helena Bonham Carter) mientras que su novia real, Victoria (voz de Emily Watson), le espera en la tierra de los vivos. Aún cuando la vida en el mundo de los muertos resulta ser mucho más colorida de lo que su estricta educación ofrecía, Víctor comprende que no existe nada en esta vida ni en la otra, que la pueda separar de su verdadero amor. Es una historia de optimismo y de auténtica vida después de la muerte, que es contada al clásico estilo Burton."--Envase

In 1950s post-war England, the working classes faced an unappetizing choice between drudgery, degradation, and despair or the materialist blandishments of deadening suburban affluence. Arthur is the prototypical 'angry young man'--outspoken, dissatisfied with the status quo, rebelling against stifling class distinctions--insolent and self-confident, his high wages enable his disdain for following orders and his hard drinking, red-blooded weekends. He is determined to enjoy his freedom as long as he can get away with it, before being trapped by marriage into conformity, surrounded by nappies and rent books in a new housing estate
