A Fairy Tale of a Count, a Lady, a Beauty and a Beast

  • Jul 5, 2011

Beauty and the Beast: A Dark Tale is a small budget movie that despite its flaws and 'smallness' turns out to be pretty good. Don't look for some perfect, grandiose movie and you might find something interesting here! The classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast in this movie is told as a "dark tale" but has the traditional happy ending.

Technically the movie was not all there (like the editing being confusing at times), but i found the basic story, characters and the basic sense of it to be very good.

Rhett Giles as Count Rudolph and Vanessa Gray as Lady Helen (the "witch" - a "fairy" in the original 18th century tale turns the prince into the beast) make a good bad couple.

Estella Warren as Belle (the beauty) and Victor Parascos as the Beast are wonderful.

Their relationships and roles are well done and interesting.

ps: rated R for violent images; namely a "troll" killing and eating people.

What did you think of this review?

So. How does it differ from the usual B&B fare?

Sounds like an interesting version of a classic tale. I'm adding it to my viewing queue. Thanks for the recommendation!

Ooooh, this sounds kind of like Labyrinth. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing, Gary!
