Episode 65 – La Belle et la Bete

La belle et la beteThis episode, we watch the classic French film “La belle et la bete” (Beauty and the Beast). Jean Cocteau’s artistic rending of the classic French fairy tale is a clear influence of the adaptations that followed up to and including the well known Disney version. We talk a lot about the artistry of the film as well as the clear influences on other works. ¬†We also spend some time looking at the production filmed in post WWII France.

For our next episode, we will be watching Stagecoach!
