one word: Amazing
5 February 2006 | by canjam_18See all my reviews

There are no words to describe when watching this movie, it's like a breath of fresh air. Whether you are fluent in french or not you will come to appreciate this movie instantly. It is a classic story of boy loves girl who loves someone else. If anyone has captured a classic it is Victor Hugo.

A great deal of people contributed to the beautiful theatrics in this production and although everyone sang beautifully three people stood out in my mind. Bruno Pelletier who played Gringoire, Garou who played Quasimodo, and last but not least Hélène Ségara who played Esmeralda. Bruno Pelletier's voice was so pure, so pure in fact that I never would have guessed he was singing live. I liked Garou's voice in particular because it was like a modernized rock voice meshed with classical ballads. Hélène's voice was just amazing, her range was endless. The sound of their voices were so good that it literally brought tears to my eyes.

I strongly recommend this movie to everyone and I give it a ten out of ten simply for the fact that though in french it portrays the universal language of love, which is translated very clearly.
