Storyline

Beauty is the backbone of her family. Without her nothing is ever done and no one is ever on time. But when her father angers a beast living in an enchanted castle, Beauty takes his punishment. She leaves her family and lives in the castle where, for the first time in her life, she starts to think about what she really wants. With her host only appearing at supper time, Beauty finds her own ways to amuse herself, but at night she dreams of a lost prince who constantly asks for her help. Through her choices Beauty learns what is important and what wishing can accomplish. Written by Max Vaughn

2 September 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

not great. not impressive.and far by the animated version. only sweet. and this is the necessary virtue of an adaptation of a fairy tale. Rebecca de Mornay and Yossi Graber and John Savage are perfect choices for theirs roles and the atmosphere and dialogues impress for the define the precise target of film - the children. sure, in a period when the films must be for entire family, when the technology makes each ambitious project realistic, the delicate romance of a film who could be easily victim of ironies is not real seductive. but this version of Beauty and the Beast is impeccable. and almost a model for the right manner to translate in image the heart of a story about love, sacrifice and happiness. the delicacy , the air of the late "80's, the slow and careful exposure of events are inspired options for recreate a form of magic who open the doors to a real lovely fairy tale.
