Beauty and the Beast
CZ, 1978, 35mm, VOST FR & ANG / FR & ENG OND, 91' + 31'
Beauty, as popular wisdom will have it, is in the eye of the beholder. But here, that beholder is a mythical monster that forbids its prized possession to return its gaze. Dreamlike and ethereal adaptation that draws out the uncanny qualities of the original story and pities the antihero his inner turmoil.
In the presence of director Juraj Herz
