Product description

Product Description

Based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, Les Miserables is the story of Jean Valjean (Liam Neeson), a Frenchman imprisoned for stealing bread. After breaking his parole in order to start a new life for himself, Valjean must evade the persistent Inspector Javert (Geoffrey Rush). The pursuit consumes both men's lives, and soon Valjean finds himself in the midst of the student revolutions in 19th century France.

Bonus Features include:

- “A First Look at Les Miserables” Featurette

Included on the Blu-ray is the previously released bonus featurette, “A First Look at Les Miserables”.

From Amazon.co.uk

In this adaptation of Victor Hugo's evergreen classic, Liam Neeson is Jean Valjean, imprisoned for stealing bread then paroled after nearly two decades of hard labour. A gift of silver candlesticks from a kindly priest helps him begin anew. Forging a decent and profitable existence, he finds success as a businessman and as the mayor of a small town. He even takes in a pregnant young woman (Uma Thurman) and raises her daughter as his own. But when a former prison guard (Geoffrey Rush) recognises Valjean, his past catches up to him. Director Bille August culls mesmerising performances from his cast, but loses us with an ending that panders to teen audiences. The focus shifts dramatically, and uncomfortably, from the haunted Neeson and his hawk-like pursuer, to his daughter (Claire Danes) and her romance with a handsome revolutionary. After this narrative shift, the script leaves behind Hugo themes of revenge and redemption to focus improbably on teen angst--hardly what the author had on his mind. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love this version of Les Miserables, great photography, colour, scenery, dialogue, actors. I bought it though I had already seen it. I confess right now that I have never read the book. Liam Neeson was very well cast in his role as the main character, Jean Valjean, an ex-convict. Geoffrey Rush, who played Valjean's persecutor, though good, didn't quite match up to Charles Laughton who played that role in a much earlier version. I think Jean Valjean (Neeson) should have been canonised for his patience with his adopted daughter(I think she was trying to get him killed personally) and his relentless persecutor. More than once Valjean had the opportunity to rid himself of Rush without even gettings his hands dirty. (Maybe Valjean had a death wish. Certainly he's a better person than I am Gunga Din!) This movie had my emotions all over the place and I like a movie, or book, that can do that!

I first saw this film on Sky and I loved it, so I had to get it on Blu Ray. Liam Neeson is excellent in this film, he is great in all the films he has been in. I have watched it dozens of times and still enjoy it every time. A top film that I will never get tired of. So glad that there is no singing in this one, I can't cope with the musical one that's just come out on Dvd as a friend lent it me and I had it on fast forward alot. So this Les Miserables from 1998 is definately well worth buying a really good purchase,

I love this adaptation to Les Miserables. It's a fantastic interpretation to the story and my favourite one.
There are always going to be some differences between a book and a movie. Sometimes the producers completely re-write a work. I love what they've done with this one and the scenes are fantastic. Actor/Actresses/acting… top-notch.

This is a very good film, excellent costume, scenery and acting. The film is great to watch before watching the musical as it explains the story really well. My husband actually preferred this film to the musical!!
I would recommend this film and I was really pleased with the price too.
