Belle is simply put one of the most beautiful films I’ve seen this year both visually and metaphorically, It’s a wonderful coming of age story that takes some Beauty and The Beast elements and executes them in a unique way, the voice acting is truly fantastic especially when combined with the engaging writing that really highlights how masterfully written the characters are. Suzy in particular feels incredibly relatable her journey in the film not only tries to discover who the “beast” is but who she is as a person, the film is also a wonderful piece showing how beautiful the internet can be when ignoring the bad parts about it. This is mostly shown from Suzy’s story and the animation speaking of which the animation is absolute perfection, it helps tell the story both visually and metaphorically. The music is truly wonderful as well that captures a range of emotions that compliments the whole film wonderfully. Belle as a film also understands how beautiful and actually necessary the internet and social media is, how we can help others (which is shown by Belle wanting to help “the beast”) and help heal us as well. Overall Belle is truly a meaningful film that really makes you cry tears of joy, this is a film that has so much charm and love put into it that you just can’t help but smile and cheer. This is a film I absolutely recommend checking out!
Belle is available on all VOD Platforms.
