In her version of Perrault’s classic fairy tale, Breillat bestows her Beauty with the ability to wander far and wide in her dreams during her 100 years of sleep. So landscapes that circumnavigate the globe and a variety of historical periods provide the backdrop for the young girl at the center of the story. Breillat has been hailed as one of the most important observers of our time on the themes of desire and sexuality. This is not a Disney-fied version of the story.
