This is a wonderful surrealist film, but also a great satire of insensitive behavior, in a very French way. The venality of the "wicked sisters" is reminiscent of Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring. Of those two films, only Manon had a fairy tale ending. The visuals are terrific, and so are the performances and makeup. Very very different from anything with the Disney label.

Great classical movie... Almost as good as the Disney version, but a great realistic depiction of how the tale would be in real life.

Fantastic movie. Watched it with my teenage daughter who at first did not want to watch it (it's b&w and in a foreign language). We both loved it. Wonderful cinematography and casting. My daughter loved it so much she has watched it again.

Beautifully rendered confirmation that love conquers all accompanied by cinematography far ahead of its time.

This is a beautiful fairy tale for adults, about a young woman and a beat who was going to kill her father, until she who volunteers to take his place and go to the beast's castle. Faced with this empathetic, kind Beauty, the Beast doesn't have the heart the murder her. Though sometimes his savage heart beats too wildly in front of her, and he orders her to lock herself inside his bedroom so she can be safe from his wild animalism. The film has beautiful art direction, well-written dialogue filled with double entendres, and wonderful fantasy elements. Does it spoil the film for me to point out that it has a happy ending? This sumptuous old film classic could well be enjoyed with a date, or under the influence.

The raw truth of are social cultural influence. With a beauty attached that at times feels unrelenting. A high male of maturity from what Disney later created through animation.
Very raw emotional truths

It is not clear from the description of what is included on this DVD but the Glass opera is an extra. You warch the original or the opera version. What a bonus. Beautiful restoration of the film.

I first saw this as a live production: live singers, live PG ensemble, and the film shown with subtitles. The film has some delightful special effects from the days before CGI. I had to own it for the fantastic Glass "Opera En Sync."
