There is much beauty to be seen in this stunning fairy tale adaptation. I loved everything about the Beast and his castle. Very creative imagery. The story and Beast/Belle relationship doesn't offer much outside the routine. Serviceable, with other aspects worth admiring. Easy watch.

A different take on the fairytale than the famous Disney animated classic, but still just as magical. This is a visual masterpiece that is full of both charm and beauty.

This version of Beauty and the Beast is not only the best I've seen in my life, but also a cinematic masterpiece. An unique achievement by a very not popular french director. An underrated movie that should be seen for everyone, and I tell you why. Because of the effects, considering is 60 years old. The acting. The music, and the adaptation. It has no flaws, and is one of the most beautiful (in artistic terms) movies I've ever seen. Instant Top 20.
