Product Description

Product Description

Inspired by Victor Hugo's classic novel, Disney brings the heroic adventures of Quasimodo, the gentle and lonely bell ringer of Notre Dame, to spectacular life. This critically acclaimed Disney masterpiece is an "uplifting, thrilling story with a heart-touching message that emerges from the comedy and song" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). At the urging of his hilarious gargoyle pals Victor, Hugo, and Laverne, Quasimodo leaves the solitary safety of his tower, venturing out to find his first true friend, the gypsy beauty Esmerelda. The most unlikely of heroes, Quasi fights to save the people and the city he loves and, in turn, helps us to see people for who they are, rather than how they appear. The star-studded voice cast includes Jason Alexander, Tom Hulce, Kevin Kline, and Demi Moore in a magnificent Disney musical from renowned composer Alan Menken.

Chef-d'œuvre salué par la critique, le 34e long métrage d'animation de Disney ? un ajout sensationnel à la vidéothèque Disney de votre famille ? est une «histoire réjouissante et captivante dont le message, porté par l'humour et les chansons, va droit au cœur» (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)! Avec cette adaptation spectaculaire du roman classique de Victor Hugo, Disney donne vie aux aventures héroïques de Quasimodo, le gentil sonneur de Notre-Dame qui souffre de solitude. Encouragé par ses copains les gargouilles Victor, Hugo et Laverne, Quasimodo défie Frollo, son gardien diabolique, et quitte sa tour pour participer à la joyeuse fête des fous sur la place. Mais la foule cruelle le rejette à cause de son apparence repoussante. Une autre exclue, la bohémienne Esmeralda, vient le sauver et Quasimodo se retrouve à se battre pour le peuple et la ville qu'il aime tant ? tout en nous rappelant de voir les gens pour ce qu'ils sont plutôt que pour leur apparence. «La musique d'Alan Menken est emballante et les paroles de Stephen Schwartz sont souvent drôles et toujours inspirantes... Les héros, les méchants, la comédie, le suspense, la musique sont un charme à écouter et une merveille à regarder. Les enfants vont l'adorer. «Le Bossu de Notre-Dame» est une œuvre maîtresse. C'est un véritable carillon de bonheur.» ? Gene Shalit, THE TODAY SHOW

The misconception about this animated film from Disney was that it was a movie for kids--something Victor Hugo never had in mind. In fact, despite a cute brace of singing gargoyles who are Quasimodo's (Tom Hulce) best friends, this version of Hugo's classic tale is really adult entertainment, with a strong set of songs by Alan Menken. The story remains mostly the same (though tricked out with a happier ending than Hugo's): Quasimodo, the ward of repressive monk Frollo, falls for a gypsy girl named Esmerelda (Demi Moore)--though she loves one of the king's guards (Kevin Kline). But they are all put in jeopardy by the wicked Frollo, whose secret passion for Esmerelda leads him to seek her death. At times too dark and even a shade kinky, something that may scare younger viewers. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Achilles! Heel!"
- Captain Phoebus
The Hunchback of Notre Dame, adapted from Victor Hugo's tagic novel, was something that was not of the same mold as other Disney films like Aladdin or The Little Mermaid or The Lion King. It was much darker, much more daring, more beautiful, complicated, powerful, and much more dazzling. It is a tale that begins with murder, and through it runs a dark vein that Disney had rarely ever dipped into.
The story itself is daring, dealing with race and class issues, sexuality, and self-worth. At the center of the story is the Hunchback, Quasimodo, the bellringer of Notre Dame cathedral. Foremost, Quasimodo is a departure from the usual Disney fare of strapping, handsome young men or cute/noble animals. He is deformed, and he is ugly, but he is kind and gently, and such a fantastic character. Through the movie he is taken from the shelter of his belltower to the streets of Paris. He meets the Gypsy Esmerelda, falling hard for her stunningly sensual beauty and and strong character. He meets Phoebus, captain of the guard, and an unlikely ally. In the end, it is up to the two of them to save not only the woman they love, but all of Paris, from destruction.
Quasimodo's master, Judge Claude Frollo, is the cause of much suffering in Paris. For years, he has been stamping out the Gypsies, who he sees as agents of evil, spreading corruption among his people. Here, we have Disney's most complex and thoroughly evil villain since the Queen in Snow White. Frollo is not a man seeking power or money, but he is a man seeking to end an entire race of people, a man whose wonton cruelty is matched only by his religious contempt. His life is complicated when he finds that he is lusting after Esmerelda, wanting to love and be loved by the Gpysy.

"The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" is one of the great examples of the kind of exhilarating, memorable films Disney is capable of making. It's a wonderful adaption of Victor Hugo's novel and those who claim it is too dark for children simply have no appreciation for the fine art of storytelling. This is indeed classic storytelling on a grand scale. The images are beautiful and stunning, on DVD they look amazing and in the widescreen format like a large, moving canvas. The animators bring the famous Paris cathedral to life with vivid energy and detail, making it into a character. The music is a pure delight, worthy of an Andrew Lloyd Webber production. "The Bells Of Notre Dame" and "Hell Fire" especially work like awesome opera. This is also the kind of movie adults can enjoy just as much as children, what's a family movie if it can't be enjoyed by the entire family? The writers perfectly capture the moods of Hugo's flavor but filter it in a way where children can enjoy (and learn from it) while those with an appreciation for literature and film can watch the movie and appreciate the detail and craft in the way it captures the culture of ancient Paris, the look and of course, the composition of the songs is superb. "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" is a visually stunning work of art anyone who enjoys great cinema should watch.

I am the biggest fan of Victor Hugo, from "Les Miserables" to "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." To me, his words are true and alive, no matter how much time passes.
I've never been a big Disney fan, but when this film came out, I was excited. Forgive me, I was only 6. I didn't know that much about Hugo at the time.
Tonight, I'm watching the film again roughly after 8 years. I must say, WOW! Most Disney films are childish and silly (sorry guys), but this film actually had some mature intensity behind it, none that I understood when I was small. Looking at it fresh makes me wonder how I ever took it all in.
The movie is quite graphic, intense, and sometimes a little seductive, but it is still glorious. My advice, don't let your kids see it unless they are either REALLY naive, or REALLY mature. The average kid won't be able to take it.
If you are a fan of the book, try the movie. No really, it's worth it.
PLOT: Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who lives in the highest tower of the church, ventures outside his home and falls for a gypsey woman, the desire of the corrupt priest who has raise the bellringer.
PROS: Music, Scope, Epic Granduer.
CONS: Talking Gargoyles (they kinda represent the little fact that Quasimodo is a schizophrenic, another point kids won't get).
