Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Les Misérables [DVD]  (DVD)
The cinema screen version of a theatrical production is always going to trump the stage version in purely visual terms, and that is certainly the case with this version of Les Mis,, the film being visually spectacular. However, the set -piece songs are subsumed into the general flow of the action, and, I feel, lose some of their impact.
For those for whom the words and music have more importance, I would recommend the 10th Anniverary performance at he Albert Hall, also available on DVD.
