Description: This is definitely not the Disney version. While it remains faithful to the plot of the classic fairy tale by Leprince de Beaumont, Jean Cocteau's 1946 French romantic fantasy is the product of a sophisticated, mature sensibility in its tones and textures and, above all, in its surprising emotional power.

Movie Reviews (part 14) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is a great timeless fairytale that is so good told that Disney pretty much reused everything in the story for their animated film. The Beast here is magnificent realized and Jean Cocteau add some great surrealistic imagery to the film. Poetic feeling over it. The Downs: Since it is a fairy tale it ends by having the fantastic beast creation becoming a bland and boring prince that seem to lack any charisma and coolness that the Beast have. "

"Recommended by Xanadon't Watched November 9th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "I give you the greatest possible proof of trust that one can give in this world - if you don't return, I will die." - The Beast I recently saw my little niece and nephew doing a production of Beauty and The Beast - so I was looking forward to watching the original movie version - and while the story is darker than the Disney animated musical version, it is still one of the all timers when it comes to old fashioned fair"
