They are viewed as exotic outsiders and are said to practice magic, possess satanic goats, and kidnap Parisian children among other things. The novel condemns the society that heaps misery on the likes of Quasimodo and Esmeralda.
In the end, Hugo indicates that the real monsters are not Quasimodo and Esmeralda but Frollo and Phoebus. The cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris is one of the most enduring symbols of the French capital city. Hugo conceived of The Hunchback of Notre Dame as a story of the cathedral itself and devoted two chapters of the novel to describing it. He focused primarily on the Gothic architectural elements of the structure, including its flying buttresses, clerestory windows, and stained glass. Hugo identified Gothic architecture as the bearer of the cultural heritage of France and argued that, as such, it should be protected.
At the time that the novel was written between and , Paris was verging on major changes that cumulatively threatened to destroy much of its cultural heritage. The French Revolution had resulted in the desacralization, decay, and consequent destruction of many Gothic cathedrals and churches.
In the July Revolution of , the French people expressed a desire to liberate themselves from the past.
This uprising was driven by a condemnation of the forms and institutions associated with the traditional monarchical regime, and its leaders sought a new way forward. His plea was met with great success. The first printing, by publisher Charles Gosselin, was distributed in four issues of copies each, and the novel was instantly, incredibly popular.
Many thousands of printings followed. The Hunchback of Notre Dame circulated widely, inspiring illustrations by lithographers, painters, book illustrators, and even cartoonists. Images from the novel especially images of the cathedral became known to individuals at all levels of society. Notre-Dame de Paris became a French national icon, and the proliferation of images of the cathedral helped revive the use and prestige of Gothic forms.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame has been adapted several times for the stage and screen. Now this is the film that Sam Hudson and me really love because this disney classic is one of the darkest films of all time. I love the songs, I love the characters, I love the animation, I love the visuals, I love the music and I also love the story. Now do bare that in mind, I haven't read Now this is the film that Sam Hudson and me really love because this disney classic is one of the darkest films of all time. Now do bare that in mind, I haven't read the novel by Victor Hugo but it's not by the original book which is rather strange because in the novel it mixes up the characters but still Frollo is the bad guy and he'll always will be.
I won't go to any spoilers cause I don't even know where to start. OK, maybe I'm overexactrating a little but I have not read the original novel by Victor Hugo because what's really confusing me is the characters are dead or the story is absolutely different or not so that's it. Quasimodo is a likeable character who is deformed and ugly and abandoned by his mother and he was adopted by the main villain called Frollo voiced by a known actor that Sam Hudson told me Tony Jay.
Esmeralda voiced by Demi Moore is a beautiful gypsy who is friends with Quasimodo. Judge Claude Frollo like I mention before is an evil villain who is the priest of Notre Dame who hates gypsies and vows to destroy them. Captain Phoebus played by, you guessed it, Kevin Kline who is an handsome soldier who is Frollo's captain of the guard and he disapproves of Frollo's methods of killing so he rescues people whenever they're in danger and he falls in love with Esmeralda.
And if anyone notices: the main character doesn't get the girl. Like I mention the book there is a sex scene in the original novel which is quite unusual. And the last character is the gargoyles which are not in the book. The first gargoyle named Hugo, second is Victor and the third is Laverne played by an actress who died before the film's release so that's quite a shame. Many people find the gargoyles annoying but to me I like them, I find them funny. Now the songs. Boy, I love the songs. The first one is ''The Bells of Notre Dame'', the second is ''Out There'' where Quasimodo wants to get out for one day, the third is ''Topsy Turvy'' and all random ones and the one that my friend Sam Hudson want me to sing is which he said ''one of the darkest scenes in disney history'' ''Hellfire''.
Yeah, I really love this song where Frollo vows to kill Esmeralda. The music is just top-notch and you know it's Alan Menken who composed the music and the animation makes the visuals fantastic.
So I have nothing againest the novel so I'm with both the film and the novel as it is. Laughs I've been watching it a million times and I still ain't bored with it. It's one of my favourites. JPK Jul 1, BeatrixKiddo Sep 12, This review contains spoilers , click expand to view. One of the most underrated films of Disney. It contains an absolutely terrifying villain, amazing songs and many messages to give. Title drop! Nominated for 1 Oscar.

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
Edit Did You Know? Trivia Victor, Hugo and Laverne are never called gargoyles in the movie. That is perhaps because, although commonly known as such, they are not gargoyles but "grotesques", which are statues of demons or monsters said to scare evil spirits. True gargoyles are hollow and used as spouts for draining rainwater, hence the name: it comes from the French term "gargouille", which means to gargle.
Goofs The Feast of Fools which takes place in this film occurs in January yet the weather seems like it is spring instead of winter. Paris is in the Northern Hemisphere and therefore it should be winter. Quotes Frollo : Look at that disgusting display.
Phoebus : [ raising his visor ] Yes, sir! Crazy Credits At the end of the closing credits, the gargoyle Hugo says, "Good night, everybody!
