Beauty and the beast by Jean Cocteau( Visual )

70 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,951 WorldCat member libraries 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

6 editions published between 1946 and 2008 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À la campagne vit un marchand au bord de la faillite avec ses quatre enfants : un fils, Ludovic (Michel Auclair), et trois filles, Félicie (Mila Parély), Adélaïde (Nane Germon) et Belle (Josette Day), cette dernière étant courtisée par Avenant, un ami de son frère. Deux de ces filles sont ignobles, égoïstes et ont un mauvais caractère ; elles traitent leur sœur, Belle, comme une domestique. Cocteau tire parfois le récit vers la farce, par exemple lorsque les canards caquetants adressent un commentaire destiné aux sœurs de Belle. À ce moment-là le conte de fées évoque Cendrillon. Un jour, le père part en voyage d'affaires ; avant de s'en aller, il promet à ses filles de leur rapporter des cadeaux. Pour Félicie et Adélaïde un perroquet, un singe, ainsi qu'une tonne d'artifices et de bijoux, et pour Belle une jolie rose. En route, il s'égare dans une forêt où il trouve un château étrange et majestueux ; après y avoir passé la nuit et y avoir soupé, il remarque une rose qu'il décide de prendre pour Belle. C'est au moment où il la cueille qu'apparaît le propriétaire du château (Jean Marais), un monstre doté de pouvoirs magiques, à l'aspect mi-humain mi-animal. Le châtelain condamne le marchand à mort, à moins que ce dernier ne lui donne une de ses filles. Belle accepte de se sacrifier et s'en va vers le château. Son voyage est filmé dans un mouvement lent qui lui donne un caractère onirique. Quand elle voit la Bête, elle commence par s'évanouir, mais au fil du temps passé avec lui, elle en vient à l'aimer. Elle passe outre les apparences et découvre l'homme derrière la Bête. Elle devine l'âme pure qui se cache derrière sa laideur et la sincérité de son amour permet de rendre à la Bête, son apparence humaine : un beau prince qui veut l'épouser. Ce dernier possède étrangement les traits d'Avenant tandis que celui-ci, tué à cause de sa cupidité, a pris ceux de la Bête.[wikipedia.org]
