Audience Reviews for Les Miserables
My favorite telling of "Les Miserables" with Anthony Hopkins as Javert and Richard Jordan as Jean Valjean. It depicts many notable events from the book. I liked the grungy prison scenes at the beginning and the murky sewer chase at the end. The music is quite effective. It's a long story, but so was the book. It has a made-for-TV miniseries feeling to it. I wish a decent version of this would come to region 1 DVD.More
