    Thankfully in no way resembles a Disney Mo

    Years ago when this was released in France/Germany, I purchased it through the Fr Amazon for my daughter. Though neither of us speak or understand French it's been one of our favorite movies? She is now 17 years old...came out of her room the other day so excited that they were selling this in the states now dubbed in English. Without hesitation... I took a quick look online to see if it was in stock at my local Best Buy...yes!!! I got right in my truck without delay....thank you BestBuy :) We stayed up until 4am watching it together. Surprisingly we were pretty on target with what we though was going on in the French version. Anyone who is a Beauty and The Beast fan will absolutely love this movie. The French need to remake every fairytale as they have done Beauty and the Beast. I must also add that if you are not into fairytales as represented by American films for toddler/child/family genre this IS the film for you :) It truly is an adult/pg13 film with a great story to tell. The Beast will frighten a toddler and most children under 8-10 depending on your child in a part or two. Either way, it wouldn't hold a very young child's attention for very long at all anyway. They're not going to see a Mother turned into a teapot lol.... This is pure drama, a fantastic plot, wonderful acting....The only thing I can say negative which is really a compliment is, I wish the movie was longer.....not because I felt it wasn't finished but because I felt I didn't want it to end :) Enjoy buy it!!!

    Better than the 2017 Disney film

    Vincent Cassel (Oceans 12) and Lea Seydoux (SPECTRE) were solid casting choices. While Christophe Gans' 2014 French film isn't quite as magical as Jean Cocteau's 1946 classic, it's visually stunning and an interesting departure in plot from the two Disney adaptations. Like the earlier Cocteau film, Belle has multiple siblings here, one of whom see a potential financial windfall after hearing their sister's tales of Beast's castle they suffer from the loss of their father's fortune. There's also a rather interesting subplot in flashback dreams which explains a different origin story for the castle's curse from other film adaptations. Also worth checking out from director Gans is the period French martial arts cult classic THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF.

    I was blown away by this movie! The whole vibe was deep, right from the beginning, and you get pulled into this retelling of the fairy tale that is a modern day classic in it's adherence to the original motifs. There were no singing and dancing inanimate objects, Belle did not burst into song, Beast was definitely beastly, but overall, this is hands down the best rendition that I have seen because it sticks very close to the original. Yes, it is originally a French movie that is dubbed in English, but that detail becomes unnoticeable as you fall deeper into this beautiful story.

    A really cool re-imagining of the classic fairy tale (Note: This isn't an adaptation of the Disney movie) that brings really interesting concepts and visuals to an audience that may not have known the true Beauty and the Beast story. If you've only seen the Disney versions I'd happily recommend this as it adds new elements from the original story that makes this *ahem* tale as old as time feel fresh again. Worth a watch.

    Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite stories. I've enjoyed every version that I've been able to watch. This is the only version that doesn't have any singing in it but the storyline definitely makes up for it. This version has now replaced the 1987 version as my number one favorite!

    Many of our beloved fairy-tales are European, so when Europeans get to present their version of a story, it's always worthy of consideration. Vincent as Beast is authentic and this more realistic (if that's possible in a fantasy) take on the tale is engrossing, if not all sweetness and (Disney) light.

    Another Look at Beauty and the Beast

    Beauty and the Beast is one of the world's most beloved fairy tales, and over the years, it has been memorable films, television series, and, of course, read by millions. This is another beautiful adaptation you will enjoy, and it obviously will not be competition for the soon to be released Disney live action adaptation of its classic animated masterpiece and stage musical.

    I love Beauty and the Beast. I loved the original version of this classic tale. I loved the cinema quality of the visual effects. The depths. The characters. The family dynamic. The side story. The tale. My #2 of all the Beauty and the Beast tales on visual. (La Belle et la Bête, 1946, #1)

    Although Beauty & the Beast has been done many times, this is another good version to add to your library. You will recognize some familiar pieces from other versions, but this one has new twists & added characters. It is visually awesome, & I enjoyed watching the blu ray disc on a large screen 4K upscale. This one has more story than music & was a pleasure to watch.

    This French-made movie is a beautiful depiction of a renowned love story. The Blu-ray version highlights the visual imagery and enhances the sound quality. Viewers should be cautioned that not all scenes may be appropriate for young children. Overall, it is still an excellent movie and provides one more perspective on this much-loved fairy tale.

    This year I made it a goal 4 me to watch all of The Beauty & The Beast Movies that were made....& this version stood out quite a bit as far as being a very good, unique one. Everything about it was a fresh approach to the original story & it has become one of my favorites! Thanks Bestbuys for having 'This version' at such a good price!

    I love Beauty and the Beast and this was an interesting, unique take on the classic tale. I don't usually mind subtitles and dubbing, but that was the reason for the 3-star rating on this one. The dubbing was not done very well making it hard to watch while listening in English. With that being said, the style and imagery were fantastic!

    Beautifully photographed with lavish costumes, this fairy tale comes across with European style. Original soundtrack is in French, it is dubbed in English, but I found it more pleasurable to watch in French with the English subtitles. Lea Seydoux is wonderful as Belle and the story stays true to the fairy tale. Directed by Christophe Gans.

    An interesting twist on a old story! I liked this movie a lot, it's casting is good and the story is compelling. The English dubbing could have been way better. :( The special effects were ok but for a foreign film it was good. I would say check it out before buying it, but if your a Beauty and the Beast fan you might like it.

    Just as the Disney live action is about to hit us, this comes out in disc. Although a little late as the film was originally released years ago. This is the French version though. I find the beast to be a little old. But worth the purchase for the visuals which were never overdone. Beauty is played by a good actor.

    Saw a preview for this version of the film and had to see it. Watched the dubbed version which is distracting at first, but got used to it. The story is told beautifully and the sets, costumes, camera-work are great! No singing in this one, so children may not find it as appealing as the Disney version.

    Got this for my wife thinking it would be sufferable for me to watch, however pretty good. This is more the original story than the Disney version so if you like all thinks beauty and the beast grab this. If you only like all things Disney pass. Great price at Best Buy.

    The movie has a great twist on the beauty and the beast story. I enjoy movies with great visual affects and wonderful actors and this had both. This movie kept us intrigued from beginning to end. It will be watched over and over. Highly recommend this movie.
