La belle et la bete

Jean Cocteau/René Clément  France  1946  96m  drama fantasy romance

“Beauty and the Beast” not only expertly re-tells a beautiful story, but powerfully displays the Beast’s magic. Cocteau’s genius is that he makes simple editing techniques look like art and in this movie like the combination of art and magic. The visuals, in glorious black and white, are so stunning, you could almost cover up the subtitles and still understand what’s going on.
