Beauty and the beast by Jean Cocteau( Visual )

12 editions published between 1946 and 2007 in French and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cocteau chose the fable of Beauty and the Beast for adaptation to the cinema because it corresponded to his personal mythology. He acknowledged that the truth of the story led him to what he called an 'unreal realism'. This is most evident in the stylisation of the Beast's castle (given great solidity) and in Belle's journey to it. Belle's family life is parodied. The costumes and camera style have their origins in Dutch painting, particularly in the work of Vermeer
