Paris in the 16th century; Clopin, "King of Fools", is Lord of the Underworld. He has a beautiful adopted daughter called Esmeralda, who has two admirers: Jehan, brother of the Archdeacon of Notre Dame and Phoebus, Captain of the Guard. Jehan wants to abduct Esmeralda and employs to this purpose the hunchbacked bell-ringer Quasimodo. The latter is caught and publicly whipped – only Esmeralda stands by him. Shortly after, she is arrested on suspicion of murder. Quasimodo, grateful for her humanity to him, protects the woman he loves behind the pinnacles of Notre Dame.

Un Film Muet avec Improvisation à l´Orgue de Frédéric Blanc, Paris


Dans le Paris du XVIe siècle, Clopin, le roi des gueux dans la Cour des miracles a une fille adoptive d'une beauté extraorinaire, Esméralda. Elle a deux admirateurs, Jehan, frère de l'archidiacre de la cathédrale et Phoebus capitaine de la garde parisienne. Jehan involve le sonneur de cloche de Notre Dame qui est bossu pour l'enlêvement d'Esmeralda. Le plan échoue et le bossu est fait prisonnier, condamné à recevoir vingt coups de fouet en place publique, Esméralda est la seule qui a pitié de lui et lui donne à boire. Peu après, elle est accusée de meurtre. Cette fois-ci c'est le bossu, pour lui remercier de son comportement humain, qui défend la dame de son coeur d'en haut de la cathédrale.
