No mere animation cartoon ...
Don't laugh that this is a mere animation cartoon.
It is a really wonderful story and with excellent images. This story
was written by Victor Hugo. Quasimodo, who is the main character of
this story, was not allowed to go down from the top of Notre Dame by
his foster father.
But one day, he decided to get down from there anyway following the
advice of his friends, who were actually stone statues. Then he met
Esmeralda, who was a graceful gypsy girl. I think that it is pity that
Esmeralda didn't love Quasimodo, but Quasimodo had a really strong
character and he was very brave.
As well as telling a great story, the animation used in this film is
great. I really love this film. I hope that this film will be watched
by many people.
So I can strongly recommend it to you!.

A significant emotional message in good Disney picture
Bell ringer Quasimodo (Hulce) has dreamed of life outside of Notre Dame
and one day he is crowned the King of Fools, which introduces him to
the gypsy Esmeralda (Moore).
We film lovers have been extremely privileged to have been able to view
some wonderful films thanks to a certain Walt Disney. Whether we are
learning about the circle of life in The Lion King or looking at our
place in the world in The Jungle Book, there have been some
entertaining and meaningful pictures to marvel at since the late 1930's
and this 1996 picture is as equally interesting as some of our
As a musical Hunchback has a lot to live up to as Disney has produced
some of the most memorable scene stealing songs to ever grace the
animated screen. The Bear necessities, Beauty and The Beast and A Whole
new world are still being sung even today.
This picture opens with a wonderful number as a jester figure re-enacts
the tale of how Quasimodo ended up at the top of the Bell Tower alone,
friendless and 'ugly'. This opening song entraps the viewer and we are
soon on an enjoyable ride with the Bell Ringer as we discover his sad
life story of solitude and helplessness.
What I particularly love about Disney pictures is that no matter what
there is always an emotional core and significant message. Lion King
had the very grown up message of dealing with loss, Aladdin focused
upon social status and Robin Hood looked at rags and riches. Hunchback
of Notre Dame takes the concept of appearance and puts a devastatingly
sharp spin on it. We viewers on first glance will take into account
that Quasimodo isn't the most beautiful person in the world. He has a
misshapen back, his eyes are lopsided and his toothy grin is very
obvious. But this soon becomes irrelative to us as we see the emotional
core of the character and his lust towards a friend filled life. He has
much the same desires as we the viewers have. A safe and happy life
with love and friendship, and this ideology alone makes the film very
Still there is no shying away from what others think of him. The King
of Fools ceremony is unforgivably cruel as they treat him almost like
an animal and once more, Disney further emphasises an important issue,
and one of the most delicate in his career.
The religious concepts encoded are very strong, particularly the look
on sanctuaries and the reflections on heaven and hell are well
Hunchback isn't a perfect picture though. There is not enough humour to
rival the big guns in the genre, Esmeralda is a poor singer and the
music score isn't as free flowing as it thinks. Also it is over too
quickly when more scenes could have been developed.
However this is a must watch simply for the fact it is an enjoyable
picture with some very significant and important messages..
