Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

We saw this film last week, and it’s great.
Tim Burton has worked the magic of Roald Dahl and Johnny Depp was great as Willy Wonka.
The set looked lovely and the Ompa Lompas were classic.
My only problem that I had was location. Where was the film set? Half the cast were British the other American. The streets looked Victorian, yet Charlie found a $5 note.
If you haven’t seen it yet, go and see it.

  1. Well, it’s sort of like the first film isn’t it? That seems to be set in some Eastern European country, yet everyone seems to be British. Very odd.

    I think that perhaps the intention was that the recent film was set in Britain (the newsagent seemed very typically British and there were British publications on the shelves) – perhaps the money was a concession to American viewers who can’t cope with foreign currencies? I imagine that this was the reason for everyone to say ‘candy’ all the time too – very grating with an English accent!
