5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece 20 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
This is the definitive film version of Victor Hugo's story of endurance, obsession,retribution and redemption. An all star cast with some fine actors not least of which Richard Jordan as Valjean and the great Anthony Perkins as Javert, who give terrific performances as the main protagonists. The film looks superb, making great use of its locations. Highly recommended as the most interesting and entertaining version of Les Miserables.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Film Worth Watching 10 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel this film embodies all of the most important elements of the book, namely the relationships between Jean Valjean and Javert, and Marius and Cosette. Of these relationships Valjean and Javert's stand out as far more interesting than the insipid love story of Marius and Cosette, thanks to the superb acting from Richard Jordan and Anthony Perkins. Jordan plays a convincing Valjean eliciting compassion and sympathy and Perkins a sinister and driven Javert.
The film's only real failure is that it does not manage to show the complex depths and entanglements of relationships between the characters as present in the novel. Although there are good turns from the bishop and the gardener, the only characters with any real depth are Valjean and Javert. This is due in part to the length of the film which is not enough to cover all the events detailed in Hugo's epic, yet as a piece of entertainment this film is thoroughly watchable and enjoyable. The best adaptation I have seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heaven knows I'm miserable now 26 May 2011
Format:DVD
Having seen this years ago (probably not long after it was released in the late 1970s!) I recently sought it out on DVD after reading Victor Hugo's inspired source novel for the first time. Despite changing a few things around and focusing on Valjean's years in prison - something the novel spent only a short time on, this remains a highly watchable and well-produced cinematic adaptation. There seem to be a variety of accents on display, which is slightly clumsy and probably wouldn't happen if this were filmed today, but Anthony Perkins Psycho [DVD] and co. all acquit themselves well and present an engaging and emotive story that only occasionally strays from the path of excellence, although when it does stray it does so dreadfully - the film ends in such a way as to be quite insulting to Victor Hugo's vision; I don't want to spoil it for potential viewers but it's a real kick in the teeth for anyone who read the brilliant novel first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best adaptation of the novel 10 Sep 2003
By ZRRIFLE
Format:DVD
By far the best screen version of the book, and for a originally made TV movie (Hallmark Presentation), it blows away the theatre version which came out 20 years later starring Liam Neeson. Very moving, and the soundtrack does a great job of adding to the story. If you've read the book, do yourself a favor and watch this...better yet, buy it. If you've never read the book, after watching this adaptation you'll probably want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 1st and the best 15 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There have been many versions of Les Miserable, and I have also seen the stage version les Mis in London that was fabulous, but this one to me is the best screen version.
With Richard Jordan as the saved man by a kind priest, and Anthony Perkins on a mission to persecute and hound him.
Great acting by both, the book and film has a message, you can overcome great injustice and still be a better person.
Great all rounder for the family, and something to think on

5.0 out of 5 stars Les Miserables - A stirring and moving film 25 Jun 2012
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I have to confess that I have never read the book, seen the musical or seen any other film of Les Miserables. This can sometimes be a barrier to understanding an adaptation of a huge and complex work of literature where the story is inevitably condensed and not so clear to those not already familiar with it. This is not the case with this excellent film, which was easy to follow and quite a joy to watch.

The film follows the travails of Jean Valjean, unjustly imprisoned for too many years, and his attempts to be a good man following his departure form prison. All the way he is dogged by Javert, a malicious martinet who was once his jailor, and refuses to allow Valjean to live an honest life. It's a rich and complex tale, with an interesting study of the difference between morality and legality at it's heart. It's nicely directed and stars Anthony Perkins in the crucial role of Javert. He brings out the nit picking stickler for the rules, and his consequent struggle with the morality of his actions very nicely. Richard Jordan as Valjean is engaging and likeable, but didn't make as much of an impression on me. There's a slew of well known thesps scattered through the rest of the cast, who bring life and character to their roles. It's one of those big budget costume dramas that used to be done so well, with an epic feel, complex characters and a memorable ending. Five stars for a moving and stirring film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly watchable and Very didactic 5 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"So long as laws shall exist which create hells in the midst of Civilisation, so long as men are degraded, women ruined and children afraid, so long as there shall be ignorance, poverty and wretchedness on this earth, stories such as this one must be told" Victor Hugo. To an extend some of this probably holds true, even today! A great adaptation of Hugo's masterpiece, worth watching. Anthony Perkins possibly a touch miscast.
