Fairy tales. The French do it better.

Yes, they do.

And you know it.

This is a French production of
Beauty and the Beast
from Christophe Gans

Apparently, it's not due to be released
in the USA,  but I'm sure a bit of 
Internet pressure will fix that.

Doesn't it look gorgeous?

Christophe Gans
 also brought us
Brotherhood of the Wolf.

Historic fiction! Fabulous costumes!

Wire-fighting Native Americans!

Harlots and assassins! Secret sects and an evil monster!

Tarot cards and incest and pretty horses!

You should see that!

What else is this cold spring for

Classical Movement

If you came here to view
the film has been taken down
while it is
being shown on the art film circuit.

There is a link to a brief clip,
to get the flavour of the whole piece,
at the end of this post.

 Thank you to Summer, of 
for sending this my way.

If I find a link to the entire piece

 becomes intriguing and compelling;
the images shifting from 


 then to brutality

 and darkness.

If you have eight minutes
use the link
 and watch.
