The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Quasimodo, the hunchback bellringer of Notre Dame’s cathedral meets a beautiful gypsy dancer, Esmeralda, and falls in love with her. So does Quasimodo’s guardian, the archdeacon of the cathedral, and a poor street poet. But Esmeralda’s in love with a handsome soldier. When a mob mistakes her for a witch, it’s up to Quasimodo to rescue her and claim sanctuary for her in the cathedral.
This period piece is well made. There is lots of action and this film shows the way the laws were enforced during medieval times. It showed a real difference in the belief of “God” and how much power and rule the king had. It also reveals how gypsies, thieves and common people were treated. The movie is a bit slow in spots.
Anyone watching this movie will see that whether you are tall, short, fat, thin, young , old, have one eye or are beautiful, It’s the good inside you that matters and the willingness to help someone in trouble. The good always shows through. This movie is awarded our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
