Storyline

Monsieur Renard, an independently wealthy man in 17th century France, prepares to go into business with his cousin, a jeweller who has has lost much of his work after being robbed by a highwayman. Renard agrees to become business partners on the condition that Du Bois' youngest daughter, Beauty, marries him. While travelling, Monsieur Du Bois is again attacked by a highwayman and brought to a château to recover under the care of Madame Bombec. Du Bois picks a rose from the château's gardens which angers Du Bois' mysterious host, the Beast as each flower that is picked from the garden shortens the Beast's life by one day. The Beast agrees to let Du Bois go on the condition that he gives the Beast the thing he loves the most- his daughter Beauty; and so Beauty goes to stay at the château where she finds magic in the most unlikely of places.

Surprisingly good
4 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this adaptation years ago around the same time that Disney's big budget version was released. It would be easy to dismiss this retelling of Beauty and the Beast as a cynical cash-in on Disney's widely acclaimed version, but if you look beyond the restricted quality of the animation you will find a charming, surprisingly well scripted film which will appeal to both children and adults alike. It follows the original fairy tale more faithfully than the Disney version and the British vocal talent on display is wonderful. There are also a number of laugh-out-loud gags which are worth the price of the DVD alone. So if you are looking for fancy visual effects, this is not the film for you but if, like me you like a good fairy tale well told then this is worth a look.
