One of the most poetic treatments of this legend ever made
5 July 2013 | by abigail-prohaskaSee all my reviews

Even if you live far away from the German-speaking regions I can only recommend you do everything to find a way of seeing this wonderful version of the Beauty and the Beast legend/myth. It has everything, most of all magic and romance yet with protagonists you can believe in, including the charismatic Beast - Maximilian Simonischek, and the lovely, yet down-to-earth Cornelia Gröschel. The setting is a mostly ruined castle in Austria, and is presented in pictures that impress the imagination so deeply that you can imagine no other version; there is also an emotional, evocative musical score to underline the heart-rending course of events. Maybe if you write to ZDF 2nd German Television you might be able to get a copy. Don't worry about the German, it'll go straight to your heart - we all know the story. You may miss some of the humour,but you will emote with the dramatic development of the characters, the tears, the suspense and the joy.
