Audience Reviews for Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a very hard film to make. Mostly due to the darkness and despair of the original work. If you've only grown up with the Disney version, prepare to be shocked. I truly liked this effort, as it got a lot of the complexities of each character down. Frollo is a man of religion but also science. His faith and logical mind battling it out as he experiences lust. Esmerelda is a victim of her own beauty, but also plays a hand in her own downfall. She doesn't understand her power over men which leads to her angering of the males. Quasimodo is portrayed as not so much an outcast here. He is known by all, but is awkward and unaware of his strength. This is a film where everyone is guilty for their actions, which also makes them all sympathetic. The design of the film is often too much. WIth so many colors and such production put in it comes across as an over the top school production. Less can be more, but with the final heart wrenching scene, you'll probably be left as an emotional wreck.
a faithful (or so I hear ) adaptation of the book. this is both a strength and a weakness. it makes it harder to identify with a lot of the characters who are complete assholes (such as the beggers) but the story overall tugs at my heartstrings because of Quasimotto who is played very well. I recomend this movie if you like the book and don't mind dubing or subtitles
A truley beautiful movie. The fans of both book and disney adaptaions would enjoy it. It is very flowing and entertaining staying true to most of Hugos original charm and darkness. But for the true feeling of the story, watch the orginal french version(in which it was filmed) with subtitles.
