In the tale, Belle's father spends the night in the castle to rest and leaves in the morning, whereas he leaves immediately after having dinner in this movie. Furthermore, he begs the Beast for forgiveness after taking the rose and promises to come back in the original story. Here, he defies the Beast, forcing it to threaten his family. See more »

This is an almost perfect version of this well known story but my problem is that we do not feel the growing love of Belle for the beast too much. She's seeing in dreams who was the beast before, so we understand she can fall in love for who he was, but not too much for who he really is. If that makes sens. But all in all it's a very well made movie for all the family. The tone is a bit dark for little kids but always beautiful, as it's usually the case with Gans's movies. The use of CGI is obvious on the creatures, but it's done with good taste, IMO. It's a shame gans does not make more movies, I love his style. It's just that, after all this time waiting for a new movie of him, I wanted a little more substance.
