Beauty and the Beast

Julie, the Beauty of the piece, sacrifices herself for her father and sets off to the haunted castle occupied by the bird-headed monster, the Beast. Taken by her beauty, the Beast keeps her in his labyrinthine castle hoping for a miracle of Julie's love. Perhaps the darkest-ever cinematic interpretation of a famous tale with impressive visual design and a powerfully stark atmosphere directed by Juraj Herz. The Czech contribution to the Barbican series The Dark Heart of Fairy Tales.
