A rich man lives in a big city near the sea. 00:00:06
He has got three daughters and three sons. 00:00:11
One daughter is called'beauty' because she is very beautiful.
The other two daughters are called Rosalind and Hortensia.
They are lazy and unfriendly. 00:00:27
They like going out and having fun. 00:00:30
They both want to find a rich husband. 00:00:33
They do not like Beauty, because she is beautiful.
Beauty has got long red hair. 00:00:42
She is kind and friendly.
She likes staying at home and reading books. 00:00:48
She also likes playing the piano.
Father is a merchant.
He loses all his money because his ship is lost at sea.
'my, dear children ,', he says.
Sadly, ,'i haven't got much money.
We're poor. 00:01:11
We must leave this big house and go and live in the country.
''oh dear !' say the two sisters.
This is terrible, !''what, bad luck, !' say the three brothers.
'we have to work now.
,' says Beauty's, father.
'work, ?' say the two sisters.
We don't want to work And we don't want to live in the country. 00:01:43
They start to.
Beauty is sad, but she says ,'let's not cry.
We can work and be happy without money. 00:01:58
The family goes to the country and lives in a small house.
Beauty gets up at four o'clock every morning to clean the house and cook.
Then she washes the family's clothes in the river.
The three brothers work in the country.
, Rosalind and Hortensia do not work. 00:02:20
They do nothing all day. 00:02:23
They sleep all morning and walk in the woods in the afternoon.
,' says: Rosalind.
'i, don't like the country because there's nothing to do.
''we, can't go to the theatre and wear nice clothes.
,' says Hortensia.
'and we haven't got any friends.
''look at Beauty, ,' says Rosalind, angrily.
'she works and she's happy in this terrible place.
', Beauty's father says: ,'dear Beauty.
You work a lot and you're always happy.
You're a wonderful daughter. 00:03:06
A year later, Beauty's father gets an important letter.
He calls his six children and says ,'listen to this letter.
:' You ship is here.
, It is not lost at sea.
Please come to the port. 00:03:31
Everyone is happy.
'this is wonderful news.
!' say the three sons.

''we're rich again !' says Rosalind.
'we can buy, beautiful clothes.
''we can go back to our big house in the city.
,' says: Hortensia.
'i must go to the port.
,' says her father, happily.
'oh, father ,', says Hortensia ,'bring me some new clothes and new hats.
''yes ,' says Rosalind ,'and.
Some new shoes and jewels.
' Beauty's father looks at her and says: ,'what.
Do you want Beauty? ?''please, don't spend your money.
Father ,' says: Beauty.
'just bring me a rose. 00:04:32
Beauty's father gets to the port and finds his ship.
, But there are no goods on it.
It is empty !'what, bad luck, !'! He says: angrily.
'i must go home and tell the children the bad news.
' On the way home.
He crosses a big forest.
, It is snowing and windy. 00:04:57
He is lost.
Am I ?' he thinks.
'where? Can I go I'm very cold and tired. 00:05:05
He hears some wolves and he is afraid. 00:05:08
Suddenly he sees a big castle in the forest.
And there are lights in the windows.
'oh good !'.
'perhaps the people in the castle can help me.
He takes his horse to the stable near the castle.
He knocks on the big door of the castle, but no one answers.
, He waits outside the door. 00:05:34
Then he opens the door and goes inside. 00:05:37
He sees a big hall with a fireplace. 00:05:41
There is a long table with a lot of food on it.
He is cold and sits near the fireplace.
'how strange ,'.
He thinks ,'there's, no one here.
He is hungry and sits down at the table and starts to eat.
Then he is sleepy. 00:06:04
He finds a warm comfortable bed and falls asleep.
The next morning.
He finds some new clothes near his bed.
'how nice New clothes !'.
'a kind person lives in this castle. 00:06:20
He looks out of the window and is surprised.
'it's not snowing and it's a beautiful day !'.
'and there are flowers in the garden.
' He gets dressed and goes to the hall. 00:06:38
There are biscuits, chocolate and milk on the long table.
He sits down and says ,'thank you for this lovely breakfast.

He eats and decides to go home. 00:06:53
He goes to the stable and gets his horse.
In the garden.
'beauty wants a rose ,'.
He takes a lovely one. 00:07:07
Suddenly he hears a terrible noise. 00:07:10
He turns round and sees an ugly monster.
Three, The Beast'you're, a bad man, !' cries, the Beast: angrily.
'you come to my castle and I save your life.
You eat here and you sleep here.
, And then you take one of my beautiful roses.
You must die.
!' Beauty's father starts to cry. 00:07:48
Oh sir, I'm sorry You're very kind.
, Please don't be angry with me. 00:07:55
This rose is for one of my daughters.
''my name is not `` sir'', it is Beast.
Please call me by my name.
: You talk about your daughters.
, Then one of your daughters must die in your place.
No !' says Beauty's father.
'they're young and they don't want to die.

'i can wait three months. 00:08:27
Do you agree to come back? ?' Beauty's father agrees to come, back.
'my daughters must not die ,'.
'i want to go home and see my children for the last time.
' Before Beauty's father leaves the castle.
The Beast talks to him.
'i'm not had ,' says the Beast.
'go back to your bedroom. 00:08:53
There is a big chest: there.
Fill it with everything you want and it is yours.
Beauty's father fills the chest with a lot of gold.
Then he gets on his horse and goes home.
When he is at home.
He gives the rose to Beauty.
This rose Beauty ,'.
He says sadly.
'let me tell you about my terrible adventure. 00:09:21
He tells his children about the empty ship in the port.
The castle in the forest and the Beast.
, Rosalind and Hortensia are angry with Beauty. 00:09:34
They say: ,'father must die because you like roses, Beauty, !''no, ,', says Beauty.
,'father is not going to die.
I'm going to the Beast's castle !''no dear sister ,', say her three brothers.
'we're going to his castle and we're going to kill him.
!''no, that's not possible.

Beast is very big and strong.
I'm old! I must go and die.
, But Beauty does not.
She decides to go to the Beast's castle.
'no father ,'.
She says ,'you must not go.
I want to go !''never.
My dear Beauty, !' says her father.
'i'm, not afraid ,' says: Beauty.
'you must live and look after my brothers and sisters.

, Then he says sadly, ,'alright Beauty.
You can go. 00:10:44
Beauty's brothers are very sad, but Hortensia and Rosalind are not.
The next morning, Beauty and her father go to the Beast's castle.
Inside the castle.
They see a long table with a lot of good food on it.

'the Beast is coming ,' says her.
Beauty sees the Beast's ugly face and she is terrified'oh.
This Beast is really terrible.
!' she thinks.
The Beast, looks at her and says: ,'you're a brave girl.
''i'm, very sorry about the rose from your garden.
,' says Beauty: quietly.
The Beast looks at Beauty's father and says: ,'you must go away, tomorrow.
And don't come back.
Do you understand? ?' Beauty's father looks at the Beast and then at his daughter.
'oh Beauty ,'.
He says ,'please go home.

'we must be brave.
, We're both tired.
Let's go and sleep now.

On one door.
She sees this sign, BEAUTY's ROOM.
She opens the door and sees a lovely room.
There is a nice bed and a mirror on the wall.
Beauty, looks round and thinks ,'there's a piano and a lot of books for me.
How strange? Perhaps the Beast doesn't want to eat me tonight. 00:13:54
She takes a book and starts to read it. 00:13:58
Suddenly she sees these words on the pages.
Welcome Beauty, You're the queen, here.

'you're right, I'm terribly ugly, but I'm kind.
This is your home.
, Please don't be sad.
!''some men are handsome, but they're not kind ,' says Beauty.
'i, prefer you because you've got a good heart.
You Beauty, ,' says the Beast.
