La Belle et la Bete (2014)

Director Christophe Gans brings alive on screen a delicate and deep French aesthetic, which shows us the old fairy tale in a way we have never seen before. With a fantasy back story and a strong cast, the visuals captivate, enthral and entertain.

The production values are high, the scale is grand, but human emotions and their minute nuances are captured and communicated with ease, causing one to be enchanted at the very least.

In the modern world where fairy tales have been presented in new flesh and bones, this one is the best so far.

3.5/5
