Highlighting classical, modern, and contemporary myth cycles
Recognized as a classic of French cinema, this 1946 French romantic fantasy film was directed by French poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau. Beauty and the Beast has had many film versions over the years, yet critics agree that the French version deserves recognition as one of the best films in world cinema. Beauty and the Beast is a version of the Cupid and Psyche myth.
