Not your Disney Version
I absolutely loved Disney's Beauty and the Beast. This version is just as good with a little Phantom of the Opera and Jane Eyre thrown into the mix. The acting was amazing and the backdrop was breathtaking. I only wished I can find the version where Alessandro Preziosi is NOT dubbed over. Highly recommend if you like Jane Eyre or darker romances.
