I never saw this movie when it came out 15 years ago. I don’t remember why, just a feeling of dis-interest.
Anyway I got a craving to see it last night because I saw of all things a tumblr post on my dash talking about cosplaying Esmeralda.
I love the soundtrack - listening to it on Spotify. And I loved the themes of justice, religion, lust etc.
But what I hated was the ending. Because clearly Quasimodo is so deformed he can’t have the girl. Obviously. I don’t know why I had such a knee-jerk reaction but I did not like the ending. Everyone’s happy but Quasi can’t get the girl *sigh*
(And I know the Disney movie differs a lot from the source material, Victor Hugo’s book - but isn’t that the case with most Disney movies?)
