5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique, 1 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Notre Dame de Paris (2001) (Full Uncut) (Region 2-6) (DVD + Book) (PAL) (UK Format) (European Release) (DVD)
We saw a version of Belle on a holiday to Turkey and bought the DVD which is excellent - could not believe we had not heard of this musical before which is the Victor Hugo hunchback story but the music is simply great - La Volupte is exquisite with Patrick Fiori not given the accolades for a wonderful performance.

The music , choreography/ dancing and of course the story line is unbeatable . I have watched it 17 times so far and no doubt will watch it another 17 times.I wish it would come to the West End stage but you can't have everything. thank you

4.0 out of 5 stars French Delight, 21 Sep 2013

This review is from: Notre Dame de Paris (2001) (Full Uncut) (Region 2-6) (DVD + Book) (PAL) (UK Format) (European Release) (DVD)
It's good to see the French version of this as I saw it on stage at the West End in English so I am bound to compare it with the live Danni Minogue version - which was fairly spectacular The Frenchness of this helps with the whole theme of things and is quite a delight though a little lengthy to view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Show, 7 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Notre Dame de Paris (2001) (Full Uncut) (Region 2-6) (DVD + Book) (PAL) (UK Format) (European Release) (DVD)
We saw the show when it was first produced in Paris... simply wonderful! Very different to the musicals we were used to, ie American or Andrew Lloyd Webber etc. We love the differences too. The show was produced in London eventually but not as well as in Paris. It didn't work so well because clearly the British audience didn't want anything "different" to what they were used to. The French musicals aren't "acted" in the way ours are when the singing can sometimes be less than entirely adequate but "that doesn't matter". They are more interested in France in the singers having excellent voices, and they sing the songs much as operatic arias.

If you don't like "something a bit different", you may find this show less than perfect - for you. But for me it's brilliant! The music/songs are simply gorgeous. And of course the story .. from Victor Hugo's deeply moving book that often in English is entitled The Hunchback of Notre-Dame - one of the greatest books written by one of the greatest writers.
