Beauty And The Beast YIFY Extra Quality


We've all heard or seen the classic fairy tale of "Beauty and the Beast" but it's probably fair to say that you've never seen a version as beautifully done as this 1978's Czech adaptation. Absurd you say? Like most people who grew up in the 90's, I was long under the impression that the only film version of "Beauty and the Beast" that counted was Disney's 1991 animated classic. But then I came across this version. Directed by Juraj Herz, it sets the tale in a gloomy world where we met a well to do merchant who's expecting a large shipment of priceless jewels, diamonds, the whole works. But unfortunately for him, they are stolen in route by the dreadful beast that haunts the black forest. Desperate to provide for his three daughters, he sets out to the beast's decrypted mansion to sell a priceless painting of his late wife. At first, everything goes well until he makes the mistake of plucking a rose from the beast's garden. Through some creative camera work, we don't see the beast right away but from the father's reaction know that he is hideous and angry . The beast tells him that if he wants to live, one of his daughters must come on her own free will to be with him forever. Julie, his kindest and most caring daughter, volunteers to sacrifice herself for her father despite not knowing the grisly details. When she first meets the beast, she only knows his voice since he only talks to her from behind. Yet, Julie can't help but feel something tug at her heart and what follows is one of the most dark and surreal love stories ever put to screen. Let me just state that this is probably not the best version to show little kids due to the fact that it may give them nightmares! The director here was clearly going for a creepy and atmospheric take on the legend with the dark lighting, eerie shooting locations, and winding camera angles from the beast's point of view. In other words, it's what a fairy tale is supposed to be before Hollywood waters it down for kids. Also the music score, with its foreboding organ chimes, goes a long way to establishing suspense and apprehension as well as beauty when that organ switches to piano. As for the beast himself, he manages to be both strange and ugly with his bird/beast hybrid look (Considering the time and country it was made in, the costume and make up is fairly realistic). Since this beast is capable of using magic, he has his own goblin servants, including one who sits in chandelier that moves up and down when it's time to serve drinks. But the movie is more than just a horror picture; it's also a love story, one that is told well by its writing and actors. The filmmakers are able to present the beast as a complicated being who is torn between his new found love for Julie and his inner animal, which is presented in the form of a malicious whisper. Despite being under a lot of make up, Vlastimil Harapes is able to shine through and make you care about his plight. As for Julie, she could not be any more lovelier than in the form of Zdena Studenkova, who cuts a fine figure but more importantly, a beautiful personality for her character. Unlike her materialistic sisters, she has an innocent heart and truly cares for her father's well being, not just his money. But can Julie overcome the beast's hideous face and can the beast repress his animal instinct once and for all so they can live happily ever after? It all leads up to heartfelt conclusion that teaches us it's not what's outside that counts, but what is inside. Sadly (Maybe because it was made behind the iron curtain) the movie does not seem to be all that available. The only place I can recommend would be you tube. As far as finding a DVD, it appears to only be available in Europe. But the you tube version does have English subtitles and is in fair viewing condition. With that said, I urge you to check it out this beautifully dark version of the tale while you still can and remember that a woman makes a man she loves beautiful.




Beauty and the Beast YIFY



With Halloween coming up,I started to search around for Horror DVDs that a friend could watching during Halloween.Taking a look at titles that a DVD seller had recently tracked down,I was delighted to spot a Czech New-Wave Horror adaptation of Beauty & the Beast,which led to me getting ready to look into the eyes of a New- Wave Beauty.The plot:Being unable to afford the cost of two weddings being held for 2 of his 3 daughters,a widower decides to try and sell a portrait of his late wife in order to raise some money. Traveling around the darkened woods,the widower discovers a decaying mansion.Entering the mansion,the widower finds the owner hiding in shadows,and offering him food and mountains of gold.Just before he leaves,the widower decides to walk round the mansion gardens (what good timing!)and to pick a white rose to give to his third (and not engaged) daughter Julie.Furious,the stranger dives out of the shadows and reveals himself to be a man who has been cursed to look like a beast. Angry over one of the white roses being taken,the beast tells the widower that he can only go free if one of his daughters is able to take his place.Turning down the option,the widower gets the beast to give him one last chance to say goodbye to his daughters.Learning of the deal her dad has made,Julie secretly takes his place by running off towards the beastly sight.View on the film:Sending Beauty & the Beast to the Czech forest,co-writer/ (along with Ota Hofman and Frantisek Hrubín) director Juraj Herz and cinematographer Jirí Macháne grind the film down with a wonderfully decayed appearance,with the rotting face of the beast being matched by the decaying reds and golds of what was once his lavish mansion.Placing the viewer in the mind of the beast,Herz opens up every corner of the mansion with superbly stylised first person tracking shots from the beast,which along with giving the film a light fairy tale atmosphere,also subtly reveals the beast's developing trust and "closeness" towards Julie.Opening the title with animals getting butchered, (talk about easing the viewer in!) the screenplay by Herz/Hofman and Hrubín brilliantly cross rustic Horror with rich Gothic romance.Despite the face being hidden by some splendid special effects,the writers brilliantly explore the psychological monsters lurking inside beast,thanks to inner-monologues exposing the beast's raw fears and weaknesses.Despite lurking in the shadows for a good part of their interactions,the writers give the blossoming romance between the beast and Julie a surprisingly sweet nature,with Julie's encouragement for the beast to step out of the shadows being delivered in an excellent,delicate manner,as the beast starts to Czech out the beauty.


YTS.AG Movies (official YIFY site) at Beauty and the Beast (2017) [1080p] [YTS] [YIFY] Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted. -and-the-beast-2017


Greetings again from the darkness. If you are looking for dancing tea cups or singing candelabras, you've come to the wrong movie. If you are looking for the Gothic approach to the dark psychological analysis of the original story … again, you've come to the wrong movie. Director Christophe Gans (Silent Hill, 2006) offers up a version that is neither animated Disney (1991) nor Jean Cocteau (1946), though his film does have a visual flair that will likely keep audiences (it's not for very young kids) engaged throughout.The familiar story was first written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villenueve in 1740, however, it's the revised version from Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756 that provides the fairy tale/fable that has been filmed so many times since. The story's genealogy based in France instills a bit more hope and responsibility in a project starring Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux and Andre Dussolier, and directed by the Frenchman Gans.Ms. Seydoux is an admirable Belle, and her grace and beauty make for quite the contrast to her needy and entitled sisters. Her time in the castle with the Beast is limited, and therein is the film's biggest weakness. We never really see the transformation of the Beast to a man who repents, turns over a new leaf, and is worthy of love … it all just kind of happens thanks to the beautiful dresses. Mr. Gans and Sandra Vo-Anh co-wrote the script, and this misstep deflates the core of the story. We are on our own to interpret the messages of class warfare, greed, and judging others by looks. The focus instead is on the visual presentation, which at times is spectacular.The set design and costumes are especially impressive and elaborate, and though the look of the Beast may not be precisely to your imagination, the film isn't shy about putting him front and center with the camera. Vincent Cassel's time as the Prince is pretty well done, and the CGI and explanation of the gold doe, nymph of the forest, magic healing water, pack of beagles and the curse are enough to move the story along … even if some details are lacking.A bedtime story being read to two young kids is the framing device and might explain why the fantasy world is emphasized over the dark psychological undertones (more prevalent in the Cocteau version). While some might view the ending as somewhat mawkish, it's really nice to see happily-ever-after is not twisted into some contemporary take on independence.


Follow the adventures of Belle, a bright young woman who finds herself in the castle of a prince who's been turned into a mysterious beast. With the help of the castle's enchanted staff, Belle soon learns the most important lesson of all -- that true beauty comes from within. 041b061a72
