Jean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece—in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast—is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder.
In my top 10
This is one the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. Once it finished I immediately grabbed for the remote and started it over. It's that good.
This is no Disney
Jean Cocteau's brilliant "Beauty and the Beast" is a visually captivating, beautiful, breathtaking masterpiece that belongs with the best films of all time. And while Disney's film is the greatest animated film ever made and deserves large recognition, I would put that masterpiece a drop below Cocteau's. Both films are masterpieces, and highly recommended.
One of the great movies of all time
i first saw Beauty and The Beast in the 60s on my PBS stationn. I was in my teens and was so taken by the beauty of it I couldn't wate to see it again.
