As part of its Summer film series “Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies,” the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1946 film Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau.
The only gift the daughter of a rich merchant asks from her father, when he returns from a long journey, is a red rose. Her sisters laugh at her, but once this unexpected wish is granted, everything becomes enchanting. A man is changed into a beast, the house has spells cast upon it, and, in the end, Prince Charming appears to delight Beauty.
Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau (1946), 86 min
