    I'm not sure whether Belle entrance to the castle or Avenant's hair flip is my favorite part in this film. 5 years 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! 6 years 5 months ago
