The Screening Room….La Belle et la BĂȘte

beautyandthebeastYou haven’t really seen Beauty and the Beast until you’ve watched Jean Cocteau’s, La Belle et la BĂȘte.

 

The dialogue is sparse, but between the costumes, the set design, and the music, Cocteau ends up creating one of the most magical spells ever cast on screen.

 

Things to look out for:

-Jean Marais (Cocteau’s lifelong friend & muse) in a double role as The Beast as well as Belle’s suitor Avenant.

-Josette Day (Belle), just as beautiful scrubbing the floor as she is dripping in diamonds.

-A fantastic Preamble by Cocteau that starts out the film
