On his way home, the old man gets lost in the forest and finds a magnificent castle where he spends the night. He remembers the promise he had made Beautyfor one simple rose, so he cuts a rose from one of the many rose bushes in the castle gardens.

Trivia

The characters of Clara, the beast's servant, the mysterious fairy did not feature in the original story. Instead, the beast in his human form as a handsome prince appeared in Beauty's dreams instead of the wicked fairy, telling her to see past ugliness instead of warning her about the cruel heart of the beast.

Goofs

In the last scene, when the prince smiles at seeing Beauty's dress magically change, his eyebrows alter from black to blonde between frames. See more »

Waste of Time
20 September 2006 | by luckylaperlasSee all my reviews

This movie is generic rubbish. You know those ridiculous Japanese low-budget cartoons of the 80's where there was almost no animation, just a bunch of still prints moving across a background? The ones where the character's lower jaw just bobbed up and down when they spoke? Well this movie is not far removed from them. And it was made in 1992? They're kidding, right? You'd have to be stunningly demented to call this movie stunningly charming. Oh, and watch out for the long coffee-like stain on the left of the screen visible throughout the entire movie. It's not on your monitor, it's in the film. No, I'm not joking. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time with this pauper's version of the classic.
