      Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review I thought it was kind of sumptuous. I really enjoyed it and loved the characterization. Sep 29, 2022 Full Review Simran Hans Observer (UK) The film’s message is a beautiful one: to integrate our real-life vulnerabilities with the persona we project is to become all the more powerful. Rated: 4/5 Feb 6, 2022 Full Review Kambole Campbell Empire Magazine Though it misses a couple of notes in its final act, it’s an exhilarating sensory experience, with great emotional depths. Rated: 4/5 Feb 5, 2022 Full Review Maxance Vincent InSession Film Once this dynamic happens, Hosoda can now play around with the characters’ emotions and build up the climax, which contains many emotional cruxes at once... Rated: A- Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Nicolás Medina Montevideo Portal / Latido Beat Hosoda takes an unexpected twist in bringing the tale of Beauty and the Beast into the modern world, exposing all that can lie behind a mere avatar on a social network. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 10/10 Dec 19, 2023 Full Review Emma-Jane Betts The Digital Fix A film that anyone who appreciates animation won’t want to miss.

      antony h a beautiful and touching movie loved the look of it and music was perfect only problem was that the plot felt a bit weak as it tried to be a movie of a girl that wanted to sing again and got a chance to in U and also turned into a beauty and the beast movie and then switched to saving someone from domestic violence it did each enough service but when looking back it feels disjointed a must watch for the music and visuals but not much in the story department Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/27/22 Full Review Keaton One of the best animated films I've ever seen. Beautiful music and story, a great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/02/22 Full Review KATRINA Had me sucked in the whole time. Very emotional as well. Loved it. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/22 Full Review Melanie K I love it sooo amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/10/22 Full Review Adam Absolute 💯, but it was weird when they took the concept of Beauty and the Beast quite literally, but other than that solid 💯 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/22 Full Review Cheryl R Familiar story with a different twist, amazing animation, great soundtrack Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/22 Full Review Read all reviews
