Film Description

A landmark feat of cinematic fantasy in which master filmmaker Jean Cocteau conjures spectacular visions of enchantment, desire and death. Josette Day is luminous yet feisty as Beauty, and Jean Marais gives one of his best performances as the Beast, at once brutal and gentle, rapacious and vulnerable, shamed and repelled by his own bloodlust.

Relentlessly romantic, beautifully mounted and flawlessly acted, this re-telling of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" avoids all sentimentality and has universal appeal.
