Product Details

Product Description


Frenchman Jean Valjean (Liam Neeson), imprisoned for stealing bread, is paroled after nearly two decades of hard labor. 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. When a former prison guard (Geoffrey Rush) recognizes Valjean, his past catches up to him. Director Bille August culls mesmerizing 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 the Victor Hugo classic's themes of revenge and redemption to focus improbably on teen angst--hardly what Hugo had on his mind. --Rochelle O'Gorman

After seeing Les Miserables on Broadway, I became an instant fan. Haven't read the book yet, but I read many excerpts and know quite a bit about it.
While going through the TV guide one weekend, I was shocked to see that there was a Les Miserables movie on that night. My initial reaction was "YES! A Les Mis movie!". I got a blank tape ready to record it. Eventually, it came on. Hit the record button, and began watching.
..Sigh. I'll give it credit for the first half. Stayed pretty true to the story. However, Valjean was overly violent. And Valjean and Fantine's little romance? That made me laugh. A lot. But I dismissed it as minor things, and tried to enjoy the movie anyway.
Then...it got to the point where Cosette was older. Okay, so far, so good. They showed a man making a speech...my first thought "ENJOLRAS! YES!"....but no. It was Marius. I got upset, but meh, I have patience. 'They'll show Enjy soon enough', I thought.
As the movie continued, I inched closer and closer to the nearest sharp object. No Enjolras. No Eponine. No Friends of the ABC! What ever happened to Grantaire, everybody's favorite drunk cynic? Oh, I think he was in one scene, guarding Javert. About 5 seconds of fame. Yay for R.
They...murdered most of the remaining characters, in a sense.
And the ending....oh god, don't even get me STARTED. It was the source of jokes between me and my friend for...hell, we're still making jokes about it. Javert randomly deciding to handcuff himself, falling backwards into 2 feet of water, and sinking like a brick...while Valjean watches, then prances off smiling.... Why....WHY?!
Don't watch this movie. Read the book, and/or see the musical. This movie is simply a huge joke.
The only reason I'm giving it 2 stars is because it gave me a source of amusement for a long time. Between the ending and an earlier scene where Javert keeps telling Valjean "You must punish me"....hehehehe, we all know that he wan-- ::gets shot::

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful version Oct. 6 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a movie that we have watched more than once. If you're not thankful for the time in which we live and where we live, just watch this story. It isn't easy to watch, but as I said, it brings forth thanksgiving that we, today, in the western world can be forgiven our crimes when we've paid our debt to society. Apparently not so in 19th century France. One act of mercy propels an ex-convict on a path that is new for him. He spends the rest of his life giving that mercy to others. However, an ambitious policeman is determined to send him back to prison and stalks Jean Valjean to find a reason to do so. This is another story about reaping what you sow. Great performances by Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush, Claire Danes and Uma Thurman. To quote the DVD cover: "A compelling and powerful human drama." I highly recommend it.

Not a musical but the an actual movie. A must have for Les Miserables fans. It explains a lot that is missing from the musical.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have seen plenty of DVDs which are really good but,Les Miserables is excellent. The story itself unfolds the past misery Jean Valjean had suffered and extends
love & kindness to the down trodden. It's where his past mistakes are forgotten.

A very unique and touching story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie April 17 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is good movie because it is about grace and forgiveness - a concept so foreign in today's society that it's nice to see it in a movie. The actors do a great job. Compared to the book, it's quite a condensed version but the book is huge so that's expected!

1.0 out of 5 stars A good movie, but a terrible adaptation! Dec 25 2003
By A Customer
Well, I am an ardent fan of Les Miserables. I love the book and the musical. I was prepared for it to be different, but it was horrible! I've seen it twice- once I rented it, and once in English class. They left out two of the best characters (Eponine and Enjolras). They also left out all the Amis! The only characters that weren't warped at all were Javert, the bishop and Fantine. Cosette was just a snivelling crybaby. There was no mention of the Thénardiers after Montfermeil. Gavroche looked too young, so it sounded weird to hear about his "babies". The third act was totally stupid. Marius is too much of a lovesick moron to lead a revolution. And there wasn't even a proper ending! Can't a misaholic get at least a little bit of sympathy? The movie made Victor Hugo spin in his grave, and the Mizzies spin in fictional character land.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Les Miserables, but a good movie June 4 2003
1. Valjean does not looked as aged as he would or as dirty as he would if he just spent 20 years at a horrible prison that treated him like lower than dirt.
2. Valjean punches the bishop out when he is stealing the silver. Valjean would NEVER punch out the bishop- but I guess they had to make it more interesting. The bishop didn't even wake up in the book when he was stealing the silver.
3. They completely left out the part when Fantine sold her teeth. This is very minor, but it would have given the movie more oomf and would wrench at your heart like it does in the book.
4. Javert did not beat on Fantine in the book- he simply arrested her! Why all of the violence?!
5. Valjean had no love interest in Fantine in the book. They make Valjean and Fantine fall in love. This is turning into a romance movie!
6. In the book, Javert did not kill Fantine by insulting her and saying that she will never see Cosette again. This was just something cruel that they added to the story. I guess it was so that you would hate Javert more.
7. Although you may have seen this in the musical, Valjean did not punch out Javert in the book. Again, more violence not needed.
8. The Thenardiers weren't as evil as they were in the book. Eponine and the other daughters were not mentioned. Gavroche was not mentioned.
9. Why did Enjolras suddenly become Marius? They do not even develop his character. Enjolras is not even in the movie, and his figure is VERY important in the book.
10. Javert did not tie up Cosette and call her a in the book. I am sure of this.
11. Javert did not commit suicide in front of Valjean. Talk about having absolutely no emotion! He had no emotion while committing suicide.
A good movie if you have never read the book, but you will be angry if you read the book or enjoy the musical.
Stick to the book, my friends.
