Beauty and the Beast is the adaptation of a story by Madame de Villeneuve. Published anonymously in 1740 as La Jeune Américaine et les contes marins, it paints a portrait of Belle, a joyful and touching young girl who falls in love with the Beast, a cursed creature in search of love and redemption. In 1760, a condensed children’s version was published. It was from this version that Jean Cocteau and then Walt Disney drew their famous adaptations. Overshadowed, the original version by Madame de Villeneuve has never been adapted for the screen... until now!

An absolute gem! All Christophe Gans' films are perfection.

Really, REALLY pretty indeed. I can hardly recall a recent movie that had such brilliant set-, costume- and art-design in general. Very well worth a watch even if only for that.
