This review is from: La Belle et la bete [DVD] (DVD)
This has always been my favourite fairy tale and this old black and white film is true to the original story. Limited though it must have been whilst making the film it uses many simple props to great effect. Entirely in French with subtitles this is a film for anyones library in particular if you love art and want to thrill - and keep youngsters quiet for one or two hours. Ours made masks after the film and were totally enthralled by the spooky beast and the real arms holding candelabras. There is also an interesting book enclosed with the DVD and it is possible to download Philip Glass's music at quite low cost to play during the film. Perhaps it would make a great evening event with a few close friends who are into 'Tales from Europe' style film.
