    I'm not sure whether Belle entrance to the castle or Avenant's hair flip is my favorite part in this film. 7 years 2 months ago

    Stunning, Belle entrance to the castle is one of the most beautiful scenes in film I have ever seen. Cocteau takes you away into his magical world, what a vision! 8 years 7 months ago
