Beauty & the Beast( Visual )

1 edition published in 1946 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A modern retelling of the fable of Beauty and the Beast. Relying heavily on the talents of cameraman Henri Alekan, director Jean Cocteau adapted Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont's story to create a vision where the world of magic and fable exist side by side with the lives of ordinary humans. The action begins in a modest home where Belle lives with her father, her two vain and greedy stepsisters, and her useless brother. One night, Belle's father goes to town only to learn that a ship he has invested in may have sunk during a storm. On the way back he becomes lost and stumbles upon the Beast's castle deep in the forest. Cocteau creates a timeless world where events take place somewhere between dream and reality. Jean Cocteau was influenced by his contemporaries, the surrealists; the castle where the Beast resides is a surrealist's paradise where disembodied arms move candleabras as Beauty passes by, and invisible servants serve sumptuous meals
