The Beauty is the Beast

In the mouth, where the outside slips into the secret inside, a new human-animal interface. In this tale of our metamorphoses, the beauty becomes the beast and confirms her kinship with Kafka´s martyred insect.

(Festival du nouveau cinéma de Montréal)


A dream, a woman, a furred tongue: Bady Minck’s The Beauty is the Beast – 1st episode operates on the interface between civilization and wilderness, nature and culture, human and animal. On the threshold between the animal inside and the civilized exterior “the beauty (la belle)“ herself becomes “the beast (la bête)“.
