The first of two films by Jean Cocteau, one of France's most imaginative film-makers and man of letters.
Starring Jean Marais, Josette Day.
Jean Cocteau's imaginative and individual fantasy based on the famous fairy story, "Beauty and the Beast", remains a remarkable visual experience.
Magnificently designed by Christian Berard, it stars Jean Marais, who appeared in four Cocteau films, as all three main male characters - Avenant, the Beast, and the Prince.
Based on a tale by Madame Le Prince de Beaumont
