A mini film enthusiast, especially an animated flm enthusiast....yeah.
This film was very beautiful but I think it's major flaw for me was that I didn't for a second believe that these two characters fell in love. Why on earth did the Beast love her?? Because she was beautiful?? When the heck did the Belle realize she loved the beast?? When he tackled her on the ice and tried to kiss her?? when she found out that he accidentally killed his wife?? Also the Beast had NO character development…
I loved that this film explored all aspects of Marie Antoinettes life from being a young teenage queen, to mother, to a prisoner in her own country. The end is very heart breaking but this film is totally worth it, and not just another pretty costume film. Norma Shearer is perfect in this role as the tragic Queen.
