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.

"La Belle et la Bête / A Bela e A Fera Direção: Jean Cocteau Roteiro: Jean Cocteau Ano: 1946 Sinopse: Obra-Prima do cinema francês que recria com encanto e magia o famoso conto de fadas de Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont. Um comerciante quase falido vive com seu filho Ludovic e com suas três filhas. Duas delas, Felicie e Adelaide são muito perversas, egoístas e pretensiosas. Elas se aproveitam da outra irmã, Bela, fazendo-a de empregada delas. Um dia, o comerciante perde-se na floresta"

" 11x14 At this point I'd say 3 different versions (though one of them staged) of Beauty and the Beast have a special place in my heart for various reasons."

" Cocteau never considered himself as a film maker, but a poet. It's a cliché to say this, but Beauty and the Beast is the evidence that he surely was both. Visual beauty with the magical and surreal atmosphere makes this film such a wonderful experience. Josette Day surely is a great choice for playing beautiful Belle and Jean Marais is tender and loving Beast."

"17/05/2012 Runollisen kaunis ja hieno elokuva kaikin puolin, mutta jotakin jäi uupumaan. Leikkisä, taianomainen ja surrealistinen tunnelma takaa viityvyyden mutta yhtä kaikki siinä se."

"Even compared to the Disney version of 1991 (which I like a great deal), this is one of the truly great fantasy films of all time. So many fantasy that was snubbed in the past, but at the bare minimum, this should have been the first pure fantasy film to have taken home top honors. Oh, and did I mention I find It's a Wonderful Life to be overrated? Good, but overrated."

"Cocteau is has a masterful touch but the odd elements outweight the cinematic perfectionism."
