Spectacular foreign fantasy film on a par with American films Wow
This movie blew me and my wife away. Yes it's all subtitled but with the director of Silent Hill behind the lens this movie just screams masterpiece. The story is different on a better level. The cinematography and everything else was visually beautiful and Oscar worthy. This movie does not disappoint if you love movies with an actual story and characters. Christophe Gans could very well be Frances "Peter Jackson" or "Steven Spielberg". There is definitely something special about his directing and vision that is terribly underrated. I hope this film catches someone's attention here in the states because we need to hand him over some book series to turn into epic American films like he did here. Wife loved it. I loved it. I'd give it more than ten stars because of the quality and directing. Bravo France. Bravo. From America to your people we throw roses at your Beauty and the Beast masterpiece. ~ S A Storyteller
