Story


"Beauty and the Beast" is the adaptation of a story by Madame de Villeneuve. Published anonymously in 1740 as La Jeune Americaine et les contes marins, it paints a portrait of Belle, a joyful and touching young girl who falls in love with the Beast, a cursed creature in search of love and redemption.

It's the story of a family going through a crisis, having lost all of its possessions when the father was ruined. The encounter - at first terrifying, but then voluptuous - with this mythical Beast provides our characters with an opportunity to get back on their feet.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..crushingly boring..”
by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist]
“..Beauty and the Beast is an entertaining film for a family-outing, but not one that comes remotely close to the genius of Cocteau's classic..”
by Judith Prescott [frenchcinemareview.com]
“..sadly, Christophe Gans and co-writer Sandra Vo-Ahn sacrifice story for visual spectacle..”
by Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg [TwitchFilm]
