“Before the days of computer effects and modern creature makeup, here is a fantasy alive with trick shots and astonishing effects, giving us a Beast who is lonely like a man and misunderstood like an animal.”
Roger Ebert

“So enchanting it takes your breath away… One of the most magical films ever made.”
– Jean Oppenheimer, New Times

“Cocteau’s fairytale set standards in fantasy which few other film-makers have reached.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out
