Beauty and the beast 1930
Beauty and the Beast by Mary Pope OsborneThis story was a somewhat similar retelling of Beauty and the Beast. The main difference that I saw was that the father picked a rose from the Beasts garden and that was what caused Belle to have to live with the Beast. The poetry was beautiful and the pictures were so intricate and intriguing that they told a story of their own. Majority of retells from tales are somewhat different; I find it interesting and fun to observe those difference and pick them out. I found this book on looking up Beauty and the Beast tales on Goodreads.
‘Beauty and the Beast’: Riches for Young and Old Alike
Back to Review Index. Back to Quick Reviews. Review by Mark Bourne. Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast offers no singing teacups. Instead, this charming romantic fantasy gives us so much entrancing visual poetry that there's no wondering why Disney's creative team, 45 years later, drew more from Cocteau's film than from the original fairy tale.
Before Disney's film and long before the Beast started signing autographs in Orlando, Jean Cocteau filmed "Beauty and the Beast" in , in France. It is one of the most magical of all films. Before the days of computer effects and modern creature makeup, here is a fantasy alive with trick shots and astonishing effects, giving us a Beast who is lonely like a man and misunderstood like an animal. Cocteau, a poet and surrealist, was not making a "children's film" but was adapting a classic French tale that he felt had a special message after the suffering of World War II: Anyone who has an unhappy childhood may grow up to be a Beast. Those familiar with the cartoon will recognize some of the elements of the story, but certainly not the tone. Cocteau uses haunting images and bold Freudian symbols to suggest that emotions are at a boil in the subconscious of his characters. Consider the extraordinary shot where Belle waits at the dining table in the castle for the Beast's first entrance.
La belle et la bête (original title) A beautiful young woman takes her father's place as the prisoner of a mysterious beast, who wishes to marry her. Jean Cocteau, René Clément (uncredited).
