Movie Info

After serving a lengthy prison sentence, Jean Valjean (Liam Neeson) turns his life around after an act of kindness opens his eyes, becoming a beloved mayor of a French town. A policeman, Javert (Geoffrey Rush), who was a prison guard when Valjean was locked up, has a vendetta against him and tries to denounce him as a criminal despite a lack of evidence. Spanning several decades, the story of Javert and Valjean's rivalry is set against the backdrop of post-Revolution French society.

    Well acted and well paced, in 3 hours it accomplishes something even Victor Hugo could be proud of.

    A bit overdone, I think. Liam Neeson was the only strong performance. Uma Thurman was just too much. Sadly, even Geoffrey Rush didn't sell. Nevertheless, it has pretty, authentic locations and costumes -- so that's worth something.

    Stories of unjust persecution are always intriguing. What a justice system where stealing a loaf of bread is a lifetime prison sentence! I had to read Les Miserables in French in high school, and never quite understood it, so the details are interesting. I thought the acting was well done. Liam Neeson does great work, and Geoffrey Rush is fun to hate.
