Surprisingly good, 4 January 2008
Author: marimba-easmon from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
