Directed by Jean Cocteau
Part of Cheltenham Film Society's FANTASTIC FILMS WEEKEND.
The French writer/director Jean Cocteau created La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast) in 1946, basing it on an 18th century fairy tale. Beautiful Belle, daughter of an impoverished merchant, is imprisoned in the magical castle of a mysterious Beast, who longs to marry her. Starring the great Jean Marais in three roles, it is wonderfully poetic, inventive and passionate, and full of scenes that have resonated down the years. The source material for the popular Disney versions, this is a black and white classic that everyone should know.
