      Belle Reviews

      Despite not sticking the landing with his script, Hosada manages to successfully manipulate our emotions with moments of powerful themes accented by incredible visuals and musical performances.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Feb 7, 2023

      Belle is easily one of the best animated films of 2021! Mamoru Hosoda has taken concept of Beauty and the Beast & made it something truly awe-inspiring! The music, voice acting, emotional depth, and character story telling is something to never forget!

      Full Review | Original Score: 10/10 | Dec 26, 2022

      The restraint takes a scene that could have been merely comic into something as beautiful as it is silly. It’s slice-of-life filmmaking at its best.

      How did the anime version of “Beauty and the Beast” combine with “Ready Player One” to result in a teen drama that is subtle, moving and resonant?

      A triumph of a release from All The Anime. An exhaustive, technically excellent, and beautifully presented package for one of Mamoru Hosoda’s best films to date. [Belle Limited Edition 4K Boxset review]

      While it mightn't seem like it'd need courage to create this lush, grand, generous and captivating film — and gorgeous as well — but bold, insightful and transfixing takes on stories as old as rhyme just don't come around that often.

      A reflection on solitude, trauma, timidity, and adolescent grief which simultaneously happens against a virtual universe with almost discordant colors and plagued with five million followers. [Full review in Spanish]

      A visual wellspring, a cascade of fast, fleeting images that capture quite well the sign of the times. [Full review in Spanish]

      While taking a central idea from the classic fairy tale (and with a special emphasis on Disney's toon version), this imaginative piece is very much its own, uh, beast.

      A little bit Apple shareholder meeting; a little Social Network; a dash of Disney Princess, and a massive helping of technofuturist anime possibility.

      With a multifaceted soundtrack boosting its emotional punch, Belle makes an old tale soar anew.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Mar 24, 2022

      Belle takes familiar tales as old as time and upgrades them with swipe-down social commentary in a modern tale of love, loss and identifiable insecurities. Its as touching and transcendent as filmmaking gets.

      A traditional tale made for our times. Times where the identity and empathy are a gift. Also with a social and cultural point of view of the nowadays teenagers generation. Full review in Spanish

      Belle is more than just another version of Beauty and the Beast. It's a highly imaginative, visually stunning, and emotionally stirring film that embodies some of the best anime of the 21st century.

      More humdrum than fascinating, the film is nothing more than a soppy teen-pleaser.
