Synopsis:
"Beauty and the Beast " is a landmark feat of cinematic fantasy in which master filmmaker Jean Cocteau conjures spectacular visions of enchantment, desire and death that have never been equalled. Josette Day is luminous yet feisty as Beauty, and Jean Marais gives one of his best performances as the Beast, at once brutal and gentle, rapacious and vulnerable, shamed and repelled by his own bloodlust. Henri Alekan's subtle black and white cinematography combine with Christian Berard's masterly costumes and set designs to create a magical piece of cinema, a children's fairytale refashioned into a stylised and highly sophisticated dream.

La Belle Et La Bete (1946) (Beauty and the Beast) - La Belle Et La Bete review by GS

Spoiler Alert

A fairy tale in every sense,it is stunningly beautiful and has a dreamlike quality about it,the ultimate love story

Some could be surprised to discover that it was not released as a children's film,but was so beautifully made that it immediately captivated children's imagination and consequently earned its children's film status.

Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" (1946) arrives on UK Blu-ray courtesy of the British Film Institute. The features on this release include original trailers; delete scenes and alternate audio including two documentaries; and much much more,French, with optional English subtitles for the main feature. Region-B "locked".The release is sourced from a 4K restoration and looks just great,if you have seen it,watch it again,I am sure you will enjoy it just as much if not more than the first time
