Into Film Clubs
Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
This unlikely cult film is in the style of a story by the Brothers Grimm and when it was first broadcast on British TV in the 1960s it had quite an effect on the nation's youth, with many being able to recall its nightmarish qualities years later. The story concerns a selfish princess who is unable to love and has her beauty marred as punishment, while the sad prince who loves her is turned into a lonely, and not particularly nice, bear. Its wild design and uncompromising message certainly make an impression and shows how tales of princesses and curses often reflected issues in the real world.
Inventive and magical French version of the Beauty and The Beast fairy tale, with effects that must be seen to be believed.
