Fantastic rendering of a classic fairytale
4 May 2001 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This film noir version of the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast, is captivating and magical. In many respects it is closer to the original story than other versions I have seen. I did see it once on television in the US. I have not been able to locate a copy of the video. I highly recommend it.
