The world of cinema, as we know, has often given rise to surprising and enchanting love stories, but few are as fascinating as the one between the brilliant director Tim Burton and Monica Bellucci, the iconic symbol of Italian beauty worldwide. On the occasion of the celebrated director’s birthday, we want to celebrate not only his career and best films to watch but also his special bond with the ultimate diva.


Tim Burton and Monica Bellucci first crossed paths in 2006, during the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Their paths intertwined like characters from a novel, blending worlds so different yet captivating. However, it was only in 2022, in Lyon, that fate decided to shine a spotlight on their love at the Lumière Film Festival.

That encounter in Lyon warmed the hearts of countless fans around the world. The star of “Malèna” described Burton as “the companion of her life,” revealing one of the most unexpected couples in recent years.

By the way, on Tim Burton’s birthday, we can’t help but reflect on the cinematic legacy he has created.

Here are 5 of his most iconic films that every cinema lover should see:

  1. Nightmare Before Christmas (1993): An animated masterpiece that has captured the imagination of many generations with its magical and dark story.
  2. Edward Scissorhands (1990): A touching and fantastical tale of a man with scissors for hands, masterfully portrayed by Johnny Depp.
  3. Beetlejuice (1988): A supernatural comedy that showcased Burton’s ability to blend black humor and quirky stories.
  4. Batman Returns (1992): Burton gave a new face to the Dark Knight, offering a gothic and captivating vision of Gotham City.
  5. Ed Wood (1994): This film shows Burton’s passion for cinema through the story of a naive and hopeful director, portrayed by Johnny Depp.
