Jean Cocteau reinvented the fairy tale for the cinema with Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête), an enchanting, exquisitely realized vision of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s fantasy romance. With all manner of unparalleled visual effects and tricks, Cocteau makes the spellbinding tale of transformative love both ethereal and tangible, and his indelible images haunt the cinema like no others.
