I agree : this movie is really great and very poetic ! Its music (yes, scary some times but I don't see why it should be strange with such a story !), its atmosphere, the actors (Jean-Pierre Marielle as the ogre, Marie Laforet as the Queen - both of them very famous and good French actors), the lights... OK, the special effects are... well that's what you could do in 1972 with few money ! I loved it so much when I was a little girl ! And I can see that it is still true nowadays : my children love it too (unfortunately they can see only extracts online... )! You can't judge it with adult's eyes !!!! Don't forget that it is a story for children... Just see how children watch it : they 'live' it, it is incredible ! And this really is Perrault's world and not Disney movies which change the stories to make them 'politically correct'...
