Format: DVD
With the huge success of such grand musicals as LES MISERABLES and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, it was perhaps obvious that sooner or later Victor Hugo's classic of love and fate, NOTRE DAME DE PARIS (AKA "The Hunchback of Notre Dame") would also get the musical treatment. Disney had already done it before as an animated film, but this time, the tragic story would be presented as a big operatic musical production. The end result would be somewhat mixed as NOTRE DAME DE PARIS became a theatrical box-office hit in both France and Canada, while underwhelming British and American audiences. (Part of this could be blamed on an English translation that proved to be both repetitive and banal.)
This DVD of NOTRE DAME DE PARIS presents the production in its original French with the option to access other language sub-titles, including English. There is also a 15 minute documentary covering the making of the musical. NOTRE DAME DE PARIS is indeed a sprawling production on a grand scale. It tells the story of the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda and of the three men who are enthralled by her: the soldier Phoebus, the priest Frollo, and Notre Dame's hunchbacked bell ringer, Quasimodo. When Esmeralda is accused of a crime which she did not commit, Quasimodo rescues and shelters her in the sanctuary of Notre Dame. However, things fall apart with tragic results.
Garou does a wonderful job of capturing the pain and humanity of Quasimodo. With his plaintive gravelly voice, his is a touching performance. Helen Segara makes for a wonderfully beautiful, if somewhat distracted, Esmeralda. Daniel Lavoie is appropriately tortured as the nasty Frollo, while Patrick Fiori is solid as the shallow Phoebus.

the costumes and narration of this classic book made into an epic drama are fantastic, however there are some times that the play drags, making you wonder when the next BANG is going to come. The characters are fantastic, and the idea that Esmerelda is hung for a crime she did not commit is Tragic, as the book was meant to be.
This play was true to the book, unlike the disney fairytake, and Garou did a fabulous job really playing the belle ringer of notre dame as a fearful creature with a tender heart. The genius way the light of a rose window is reflected on stage made the whole place come alive. I would definately love to own this movie.

Victor Hugo's novel "Notre Dame de Paris" (Hunchback of Notre Dame) has been put into a wonderful Musical with Lyrics written by Luc Plamondon and music by Richard Cocciante, both from the French Canadian Province of Quebec.
Notre Dame de Paris has been the object of many movies, including a full length cartoon movie by Walt Disney Studios, and keeps making the whole world being moved by the unconditional love of the hunchback of Notre Dame of Paris Cathedral for a bohemian young girl, and the drama that entangles the Cathedral Priest, a soldier and his wife-to be. You cannot remain insensitive to this story, just like you have not been by this of the same author, also put into many movies and a Broadway Musical "Les Miserables", in many languages around the world.
Highly entertaining with acrobats on stage, wonderful singing cast, internationally renown, you will find this DVD very enjoyable, provided that you speak French as there are no English subtitles. But if you already know the story, you should not have any difficulty enjoying the magnificent acting and singing of this spectacular Musical that was internationally acclaimed.

The musical Notre Dame de Paris was a huge success, and the reason for its success was that the characters were very well interpreted by the actors. The three who gave the best performances were Daniel Lavoie, Bruno Pelletier, and of course, Garou.
Daniel Lavoie played the tortured and perplexed priest, Frollo. His powerful voice demonstrated his high status in the community, but his shoulders were raised and his eyes looked down, and that established his confusion and insecurities. Lavoie did an excellent job at appearing distinguished on the exterior, but "déchiré" on the interior.
The role of the narrator was played by Bruno Pelletier. Gringoire, a confident poet who marries Esméralda, is a neutral that observes the war between the Church and the Gypsies. Pelletier could, somehow or another, be in most of the scenes but always stayed inconspicuous when he did not sing. His soft voice contributed a sort of serenity to the musical, even with all the chaos and confusion that happened around him.
Garou gave an amazing performance as the deaf hunchback of Notre Dame, Quasimodo. His voice, hoarse, showed his sadness; his costume demonstrated the simplicity of Quasimodo's life; his words indicated his misery that one could also see in his facial expressions. Everything combined created the pathos that the producers wanted him to receive. Garou seemed to have entered the mind of Quasimodo and felt the pain and suffering of a man from who people run. Because of this, the character of Quasimodo is projected onto the stage and allows the audience to feel the pain with him.
This musical was amazing. If you have seen this musical (whether live, or on the DVD) you know why it is so praised. Also, if you liked this musical, you would also like Romeo et Juilliette, and, once it comes out, Dracula: Entre L'Amour et la Mort (which stars Bruno Pelletier as Dracula).
