Manager: Jean-Jacques Annaud

interpreters: Elodie Navarre, Chloe Jouannet, Kevin Garnichat

premiere: Friday, April 22, 2022


Jean-Jacques Annaud, a director prone to big cinematographic shows with nature in the background – films like ‘In Search of Fire’, ‘The Bear’, ‘Seven Years in Tibet’, ‘The Last Wolf’ are here. history of an urban and cultural disaster reconstruct Fire and rescue at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, a disaster that occurred in April 2019. The approach is not very different from that of Oliver Stone in ‘The World Trade Center’, which is dedicated to telling the excellence of police and firefighters in rescuing the victims of the 9/11 New York attacks. Annaud, perhaps too much show us the grandeur, liturgy and veneration of the cathedralits inner workings, the mysterious passages and trenches where Victor Hugo inhabited the hunchbacked Quasimodo, and the moment when a spark flew and disaster struck.

Then it focuses on everything. heroic efforts of various firefighter groups those who managed to extinguish the main fire and, above all, save an important Christian relic. There is a veiled critique of general inadequacies—political, logistical, strategic, civic—in the face of such a death, but only this one so veiled that it hardly leaves any trace. ‘Notre Dame Burns’ is a tribute to the anonymous effort in the form of a film.
