| A wonderful telling of a fairy tale
While the social commentary is quite obvious, the fairy tale feel of this movie is pretty good. There's sort of a surreal portrait of the modern world as a world of dangers in which almost everyone is corrupted...except for Beatrice who, guileless, goes through the world loving even the woman who mugs her at the airport. The Monster is a cynical, ancient creature who fits the stereotype of the lonely outcast. In one of the best lines in the film as the Monster is pining for the fear of humans, he is warmly hugged by a sleepy Beatrice who says, "I'm afraid of you." It's a very good film, told as a cautionary tale in the modern world with fairly black and white characters. Well worth seeing for the storybook feel, some good though odd acting, and the lush scenery.
