4.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising and more relevant than ever...
For a rainy day, to be savoured with a nice hot cuppa tea! You're whisked away to an alternative universe in which you can forget just or a moment how bitingly relevant the story still is...

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheaply made collection of old clips
Be clear that this isn't a movie. It isn't a performance of the musical. There's a note on the cover that says it doesn't contain material from the recent movie or music from the musical. It's one of those Frankenstein "documentaries" where someone has gone through archives (in this case, ITN's) and pulled out old interviews, an old tv movie and reassembled them. It's...

5.0 out of 5 stars les miserables, 3 Feb 2013
This review is from: Les Miserables - The History of The World's Greatest Story (New Documentary) [DVD] (DVD)
Seen both a stage version and now the recently released cinema version. Absolutely amazing you could have heard a pin drop and the cinema errupted at the end with applause. Who would have known that such an A list hollywood cast would have had such fabulous singing voices and all done live.

3.0 out of 5 stars Les Miserables - The Best, and the Worst, 3 Feb 2013

This review is from: Les Miserables - The History of The World's Greatest Story (New Documentary) [DVD] (DVD)
Having already seen the film, I cant help but feel that other cinemagoers like myself, will be wondering why, with so many very capable singers who have been cast in the stage show, over the years, did'nt the producers screen test some of these. ? The show will sell itself. It is a monumental musical, which without doubt,has everything going for it. A heart wrenching story, beautifully told, to sensational music, that will endure for years. The film is well acted, well scripted, and photographed, in award winning brilliance, but - WHERE ARE THE SINGERS !! Surely to do full justice to Cameron Macintosh's score, you must employ the very best singers. ! Had I been casting this film, the singing ability would have had much greater priority over the acting. All those featured in earlier stage productions would have required a satisfactory element of acting ability to gain a part at all, in the shows. I'm sure that with a little coaching this ability would have perfectly crossed over, to movie making. If this film dos'nt quite pick up the degree of Oscar Awards that it surely merits in the forthcoming awards season, I feel certain it will be because this element of the production, sadly does not quite reach expectations.
