Audience Reviews for Beauty and the Beast (Panna a netvor)

A really wonderful, little-known Czech version of Beauty and the Beast. The two lead performances are excellent, particularly the adorable Zdena Studenková, and director Juraj Herz conjures a marvellous fairytale atmosphere, albeit one considerably darker and more ominous than we are used to seeing. Good enough to dispel all thoughts of even the Cocteau version while I was watching!
