If you are a sucker for a storybook romance, then this is the movie for you. The animation is so realistic. The scenes are perfect. I was impressed with the facial expressions of the characters. The beast was drawn wonderfully. Without saying a word, his emotions were very obvious. He looked mean, shy, debonair, lovable, and distinguished and radiant. Since most fairy tales portray the female as a helpless ditz, this is a very nice change. This movie made me laugh and cry. I would definitely see it if you have a love for Disney. n
