Product Description

Cursed at birth by an evil fairy, Anastasia is destined to prick her finger and die at the age of sixteen. When three feckless fairy sisters discover this, they hatch a plan to alter the curse: rather than die, Anastasia will sleep for 100 years and live in a world of dreams. Through her active dream life, Anastasia will find love, loss, and possibly a waking life. French provocateur Breillat (Fat Girl, Bluebeard) continues her deconstruction of classic fairytales with her latest, The Sleeping Beauty.

Customer Reviews

Not suitable for children.
Meralee Stallings
The fact that she's 100 years older but a character she met before she fell asleep is only 10 years older is still puzzling me.
N. Meadows
Also, it seemed to make the guys in the movie at fault?

The Sleeping Beauty is a beautifully told story. There are a number of characters that are varied and interesting. This movie is a fantasy with a sleepworld that feels like a dream as it's meant to be. The fairies explain the crux of what's happening. A little girl princess is a confident soul who doesn't scare easily, but she thinks her life is dull. After her personality is explained, the curse begins. There are wonderful things to look at throughout. For example, the mother princess and her outfits are gorgeous. She does cares about her little girl, but her emotions are flat. It doesn't seem like the little girl would miss her mother too badly if she didn't see her in the future. Besides, the mother princess was brought up by an aloof, but caring mother herself. Some parts are a bit subtle like when the little girl momentarily identifies with a bee queen because she is after all princess and a princess could become a queen. If this girl awakens from her sleep, would she know it was a dream? Would she know, understand or recognize anything? I saw this movie several times to catch more of the details and also just because I liked it.

It could have gone somewhere, but it screeched to a halt. The artistic value of this film deserves four stars; however, watching this story, feels as if you are previewed to someone's mental burp; alas, it was probably an attempt to be subtle and way too clever. It could have used a producer or someone to create scenes that meaningfully connected the scattered pieces. One thing is to make a symbolic film where the pieces are there if you look hard enough, another is to create a film in whatever order they were gathered. Perhaps if we had a peek of the mind that created it, maybe it would work.

This is a story about what happens when Beauty is sleeping. For most of the movie, it is a movie that appears very childlike and innocent to the innocent. But for the adults, it is anything but. It is only the ending that takes it in another direction.

It is very French in its vision and angst, so if you like that style of cinema, you will enjoy this little film.

The beginning to middle is quite intriguing and I was enjoying it fairly well... then the plot disintegrated, the scenes became random and lacking in depth and the ending was totally ungratifying. I literally rolled my eyes as the credits ending scrolled - felt like a total waste. The fact that she's 100 years older but a character she met before she fell asleep is only 10 years older is still puzzling me. *sigh*

Chose this rating because, to me it was hard to follow.there was a bad transition from the splinter and a hundred years later.It could be developed better and have better dialogue.

Interesting story and well acted. I probably did not understand some of the scenes though because parts were confounding me.

In the French tradition this does not sugarcoat a classic Fairy tale as Hollywood or Disney but treats the subject matter and even the children as actual human beings with complexity and edge. I'm sure there are parents who may question this as appropriate for little children with some brief nudity at times. But it's not really sexual though, except for some well depicted adolescent awkwardness. Certainly for the teens or adults this is an interesting take on a classic. And I'm sure for many Americans, myself included, this will cause some reflection on the real meaning of the tale.
