Notre Dame Ending Explained: Notre Dame La Part Du Feu is the recently released French Netflix Series that tells the story of that fateful night when the whole world had its eyes fixated upon Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral it is not only a sign of the Parisian Heritage but stands for so much more and it was on fire that night.
The series shows true accounts of people who came to the cathedral’s rescue and whose lives got deeply affected that night. Consisting of 6 Episodes, with a runtime of 48-54 minutes, the series is based on the novel La Nuit De Notre-Dame, written by the Paris Fire Department and Romain Gubert.
For many across the whole world, Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral stands tall with meaning and people have signed for it in their lives.
To see that on fire and firefighters rushing to extinguish that fire changes not only the lives of those firefighters but people all over the world and that’s the story it tells that how people who already had so much going in their lives came together because of a shared tragedy, worked together and found solace in each other which sounds beautiful to hear but that’s the reason the series strays away. For a series to be based on a tragedy that happened to the whole world, the series fails to tell us more and some stories that we see fail to connect to us.
The series is told through General Ducourt, an upright man who is the head of the Paris Fire Brigade Unit, haunted by the recent death of his son along with Alice who plays the latter’s girlfriend who is filled with guilt for losing the man she loved. Max, who is a restaurant owner searching for his daughter who’s a drug addict, and Elena who is a fearless journalist willing to make reckless decisions to gain recognition at work.
While the series is based on true events, it strays away from that reality and works more towards the people whose lives had intertwined with the tragedy that had befallen the world, and that sort of works as a negative for the film.
However, the CGI of the film is spectacular to watch and the show has done a brilliant job of recreating the cathedral and that night giving us a first-hand view to us.
Notre Dame is streaming on Netflix right now.
