An In-Depth Review of the Film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
This film is more faithful to the written book by Roald Dahl, than the classic version by Mel Stuart 1971. In the 1971 film, Willy Wonka is transformed into a fatherly figure and its plot is sitting on strings relating to the book.
This film is more faithful to the written book by Roald Dahl, than the classic version by Mel Stuart 1971. In the 1971 film, Willy Wonka is transformed into a fatherly figure and its plot is sitting on strings relating to the book. Tim Burton shoulders aside Stuart's film and returns to the source material producing an entertaining film for all ages.
Story behind the film
As the movie opens, we learn that Willy Wonka, the famous candy-maker recluse has hidden golden tickets in the wrappers of five of the millions of Wonka bars sold around the world. Those lucky enough to find a golden ticket would be treated by a tour of Willy Wonka himself of his factory - the largest chocolate factory in the world.
The first to find a golden ticket is Augustus Gloop, a boy that could be looked at as a pig. The second is Veruca Salt, a very spoiled young girl. The third is Violet Beauregarde, an overachiever. Winner number four is Mike Teavee, a super-intelligent video game addict. Finally, the last winner is Charlie Bucket, a poor boy that uses the money he finds on a street to buy the winning candy bar.
As they all arrive at the Wonka factory, accompanied by a guardian. They soon find out inside of the factory is like a giant warped version of a dream. With chocolate waterfalls, invention rooms, gadgets and gizmos and much more.
Whilst the tour moves on, each child is engulfed into a desire that causes it to befall some harm or another. One by one, each child does something wrong which causes them to be taken away and excluded from the tour. And as each one goes, the Oompa Loompas sings a song about the child, which contains much e and wit.
As it happens, the child who won a "surprise gift" was Charlie. The prize is Willy Wonka's factory. But with the gift comes a catch, which if Charlie accepts the factory as the heir, he must leave his family behind and live in solitude with Wonka. But Charlie declines the offer, as he couldn't bear to not see his family again. However, after Wonka is encouraged to make contact with his estranged father, he realises how important family can be, so he invites Charlie's entire family to move into the factory together.
Human qualities evident
This film contains many negative and positive qualities we each as humans contain. The negative qualities are; selflessness, consumer desire and overindulgence. They also include disrespect for parents and bossiness.
The positive qualities are; loving, caring, sharing and kindness. Other qualities that were subbed in included cheerfulness.
How were these qualities shown?
The negative qualities were very evidently shown in the film. Veruca Salt shows selflessness, as she desires everything for herself and nothing for others. But as the result of this she ended up as a bad "nut" or could be seen as a bad quality. This ultimately ended up in her being tumbled down a tunnel into the trash.
Consumer desire, Augustus Gloop evidently shows this negative trait. He consumes chocolate and is a pig. This is shown as he has chocolate marks around his mouth and on his top, this leads to him drinking from the chocolate river like someone who has never seen the sight of food before. In the end he falls in and his sucked up by the chute.
Charlie mostly shows the positive qualities. He is a loving and caring person with a lot of kindness. When Charlie finds the golden ticket, straight away he wishes to sell it so his family can buy food and survive, but is talked out of it by his Uncle. Near the end he declines Wonka's offer for the factory, as he loves his family, and wouldn't give anything to leave them.
How does this event encourage the human qualities mentioned?
So as you can see, the qualities are basically based on the children. The children with negative qualities all ended up in danger or harm. But Charlie being the positive person, ended up a winner in more than one way.
This encourages the human qualities as it depicts a stereotyped world. Treat others as you would like to be treated, a golden rule in religion. So, basically what it comes down too is that the movie shows a stereotypical type of view, which is entertaining. The children with negative/bad qualities end up nowhere, in danger and changed. But the children with positive/good qualities end up as a winner, good things will happen to them.
In your opinion what values are important in life?
I believe that the most important values in life are love and trust. These two values contrast with each other. You can't have one without the other otherwise the value decreases. Why love and trust? I feel that love brings people together as love can mean more than one thing. You can have love for your family, friends, pets and soul mate. Love brings people together and can create harmony and peace. Without love, the world would be anarchy.
Trust because if everyone had trust for another, there wouldn't be any need for arguments, wars and fights. Trust also shows you can depend on the people you trust and if everyone felt that way, everyone would be good friends.
Therefore, if love and trust were too be combined and made into a whole. This value would be the most important in our society today. Love and trust are meant to be together.
Which of these values are dealt with in the film/event you viewed?
Both of these values were dealt with in the film. You might not have noticed it but they were.
How were they shown?
These values were obviously shown in the film. The more obvious one being love. Charlie loves his family so much he was willing to sacrifice the golden ticket for money so they could survive. He also declined Wonka's offer so he could be with his family, another sign of love.
Trust was dealt with in a weird quirky sort of way. Willy Wonka trusted that the winner of the tour would gladly accept his offer for his factory. He trusted that Charlie would accept but as it happened Charlie didn't. But in the end Wonka trusted Charlie and his family to live with him in the factory and formed a new relationship. So in the end, love and trust were dealt with near the end and it showed to be prosperous and happy.
Was family life reflected?
The film was based on family life. Each child who won a golden ticket, each had a member of their family accompany them and they each held different personalties. Wonka also reminisced about his father, the dentist.
The strongest part of the film, which depicted family life, was the start of the film and the ending. Charlie and his family were poor and lived in a small abstract cottage. But the family stuck together and gave advice to Charlie. His parents worked hard to put food on the table, even if it was just cabbage soup at the start.
Family life was also shown in each child who won a golden ticket; let it be a bad family relationship or a good one.
Ausgustus's family were chubby and loved food, his dad was a butcher and he was working on the sausages in the film. Veruca lived in a rich family, where she was spoilt with things she usually didn't want in the end. Violet had a mother who pushed her to go for her goals edging and shaping her to become an overachiever. Mike had a family where he just loved to play games and his parents couldn't do anything about it.
So you can see, family life was reflected deeply even though you might not have picked it up. It shows the different life styles of each family and how we are all different.
Did you enjoy the film event?
Yes, I thought the film was entertaining.
I thought this film was entertaining because it was abstract, quirky and had wit at the same time. The mixture of gothic and jaunty sometimes made the film a topsy-turvy experience but it was smart and unique.
Willy Wonka (played by Johnny Depp) was an intriguing character and was portrayed as creepy. He is obscure, random and has a sort of childish laugh at things, which aren't funny. This makes the audience feel they aren't watching Depp act but they are actually watching the personality of Willy Wonka.
But I mostly enjoy this film, because it gains most of its material from the original book by Roald Dahl. It contains the mystery, irony, darkness and humour from the book, which makes this a great film enjoyable by any age.
