French visionary poet, playwright and painter Jean Cocteau's first film dreamily visualizes the awesome beauty of the 18th century fairy tale by Madame Leprince de Beaumont. The tale of a young woman's love for an agonized beast is one of the cinema's most poetic works, forging inventive relationships between special make-up effects, photography and art direction. Shot by noted French cinematographer Henri Alekan and featuring an exquisite score by George Auric, Cocteau's atmospheric film, with its shadowy castle and billowing curtains, perfectly suits this timeless tale of innocence, hope and of the power of redemption through love. (90 min)
