Don't be put off by the fact this classic movie is in black and white, and now over 60 years old - it's one of the most enthralling films you could ever see, full of magic, passion and danger. The basic plot is familiar from the fairy tale - Beauty is made to live with the animalistic Beast in return for her father's life - but the world it creates is like no other; statues live, mirrors talk, and love overcomes prejudice.

    I didn't enjoy this film as the special effects made everything look on fire but I realise that it was just after the war and that they didn't have much money but the whole thing was not very good and they made the beast look like a big cat and it was difficult to understand with sub titles and French in the background it wasn't a very child friendly film.

    La belle et la bete is a good movie but very scary. The beast is very frightening and bell is a very loving character with traits of a princess. She is a forgiving person and would die for her beloved father. As the movie goes on her boyfriend makes a plot to steal the beast's treasure and his most new beloved possession ... Belle. This French movie with subtitles was very good but I would prefer the language in English. I rate this movie 3 stars for its excellent actors and its amazing scenery in black and white with its French language. I would recommend this movie to anyone who would want to watch it.

    I did enjoy this film as it showed how the French lived in the olden days and it gave you a different view of the Disney film Beauty and the Beast. I think the actors in the movie were really good as they helped understand the story as it was in French dialogue. The only reason I did not rate this higher was because I felt as though it just kept going on and on if the movie was shorter it might have gotten rated 5 stars. At the end of the day it was made a long time ago so I don't blame the director.I feel if French speaking people watched this they would enjoy it more and would be able to understand more. My favourite part was when the beast was able to show its feelings to Belle as it shows that even how tough you look even you can have feelings.I am quite happy we where able to watch this film as Disney almost copied the plot so it is good we can see the original plot. Overall I did enjoy it and would recommend to older kids and adults as they could appreciate the French version of Beauty and the Beast more. .

    I really enjoyed this film but with the hands coming out the wall it was really creepy! The beast looked a bit like a gorilla or a lion. It was a bit of a disappointment to me after I had seen the newest beauty and the beast but considering it was just after the war I think they didn't make a bad job of it. The only other thing was I got a bit lost half way through as I couldn't keep up with the subtitles. Overall I think that this movie was very good

    I liked this movie but it was a bit confusing as its in French. I don't enjoy reading subtitles with it also talking French. I didn't understand if the beast was a gorilla or a giant cat!!!
    I think Disney made this movie a lot better to understand especially for kids as I am 12 and I don't understand the background.
