 About me

the hunchback of notre dame (1982)

Director Michael Tuchner
Cast Anthony Hopkins, Derek Jacobi,  Robert Powell,
Lesley-Ann Down
Quasimodo, Notre Dame's bell ringer is in love with Esmeralda the gipsy, but Esmeralda is in love with Phoebus (who doesn't?) and Frollo is in love with Esmeralda. Well, you know the story!
This is another version of Victor Hugo's famous novel, with an excellent cast. The only thing I didn't like is that, as usual, the story isn't closer to the book. Know it now: in the original story Esmeralda dies! Difficult to understand? Why nobody tries to follow the original story?

Anyway, the film is not bad, Anthony Hopkins is excellent as Quasimodo and Derek Jacobi is great as the malevolent Frollo. But my Robert just appears some minutes, enough to seduce Esmeralda (and me!).
