Trivia

Mandy Patinkin was originally cast as Quasimodo in the Disney version of De klokkenluider van de Notre Dame (1996), but dropped out due to clashes with the producer regarding the character. He was cast as Quasimodo in this film, and Tom Hulce was cast to voice Quasimodo in Patinkin's place, in the Disney version. See more »

Goofs

When Quasimodo returns to the Cathedral after his public punishment there is no sign of it on his skin, though it was prominent in the scenes with Esmeralda. See more »

Quotes

Dom Frollo: Pity? Pity me, Quasimodo. To be a man of God, and to love a woman; and to love her more than God.

Good fun,
12 February 2000 | by stamperSee all my reviews

A realistic and good performing cast made this a good movie. The ugly, but nice Quasimodo (whose face looked quite ridiculous, but still very misformed), the beautiful and enchanting Esmeralda and of course the mean Frollo. They were all very good, although I must say

that Mandy Patinkin, as Quasimodo, made the biggest impression on me, he really could make you cry. Richard Harris was great as the clergyman torn between his belief and Esmeralda and Salma Hayek, of course, was as stunning and beautiful as ever. As for the story, well I believe I don't have to explain that to anyone.

Great, but yet not very much acclaimed or famous film. 8/10
