The makers of 'Notre-Dame On Fire' left no stone unturned to lend
authenticity to the film which captures the blaze that took place at
the historic Notre-Dame cathedral and tells the story of many
courageous souls who risked everything to douse the deadly flames.

Annaud birthed a new idea to make his film, as the team decided to
