French Lesson Plan

Poet of the French cinema, Jean Cocteau transforms fantasy into reality in this adaptation of Mme. Marie Leprince de Beaumont's fairy tale. Breathtaking imagery draws viewers into the enchanted realm of the magnificent beast and the gentle beauty who discovers the sensitive soul hidden beneath his monstrous exterior. Cocteau invites us to suspend disbelief as we enter an amazing world where a splendid white horse has magical powers, candelabra have human arms, and tears turn to diamonds. This film is Cocteau's personal statement on the power of love. IMDB
