One of the greatest films ever made,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hunchback of Notre Dame [DVD] (DVD)
It's inexplicably difficult to find a copy of this classic film, but thankfully here it is. On the negative side, the cartoonish cover looks like it would be more suitable for a pulp-fiction novel, and the cast biographies in the extras are in Korean (God only knows why - there's both Korean and English subtitles available as well), but it seems churlish to quibble over such insignificant details considering the trouble you'll have trying to find this on DVD elsewhere. The film itself, for those who haven't seen it, is quite simply a masterpiece of cinema. Almost every single frame could be a work of art in itself, but still it's thrilling entertainment, eliciting just about every possible emotion from the viewer in two hours. It's a shame that TV companies seem to be getting more shy of broadcasting black & white films, so most people have probably only seen the Disney version. The DVD is All-Region, NTSC. 4:3 Aspect.
