What a beautiful movie-Wow..

Black and white
In French with English subtitles.

The most beautiful photography-just like paintings. Such a moving story. The most beautiful woman is Belle. The magical special effects are just wonderful.

Don't miss the the extras, especially how much work goes into the remastering and the makeup.

One of my favourites for decades; all performances are superb, especially Jean Marais as the beast.

Neat old special effects. A beautiful movie. The acting took a lot to get used to.

Not mentioned in the 'full record' description, but I believe this Criterion edition includes an alternative sountrack - an opera in French composed by Phillip Glass. Highly recommended!!!
