Beauty and the Beast is a tale published in 1740 by Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve and published in « La jeune Amériaine et les cotes marins ». It’s like a wonderful tale and fiction. The first adaptation was in 1946 by Jean Cocteau then there were about nine different adaptations during the nineteenth and twentieth century. The last fim is March 22, 2017 and lasts 2 hours and 09mins.
At the end of the eighteenth century, in a small French village. Beautiful a dreamy girl and passionate about literature, lives with her father who is a wacky old inventor. He lost himself one night in the forest he took refuge in the castle of the Beast, which throws him in the dungeon. She could not bear to see her father imprisoned, Belle then agrees to take her place, unaware that under the mask of the monster hides a Prince Charming trembling with love for her, but victim of a terrible curse. We see in the heart of the tale, a magical story between beauty and the beast. A complicity, affection and of course the love that is born little by little.
Beauty and the beast is not necessarily my favorite tale but I liked to read it and discover the sublime story between the two. I saw the movie in 2012 I think and it was really wonderful. Beauty and the Beast are a magical couple and their story has not been simple from start to finish. I recommend reading the tale and watching the film after, because it’s the same story but not the same details.
