Movie Info

Director Jean-Pierre Ameris' (Romantics Anonymous) adapts Victor Hugo's beloved novel for the screen to tell the story of Gwynplaine (Marc-Andre Grondin), the grotesquely disfigured son of a marquis who falls in love with a girl (Christa Theret) he once rescued from certain death, and who inherits his father's seat in parliament after being raised in poverty. Crippled by self-doubt over his hideous visage, Gwynplaine uses his newfound power to preach truth and principal to the powers that be, but finds only tragedy in his search for true love. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Man Who Laughs (L'homme qui rit)

Though not exactly bad, this is a soulless adaptation that lacks enough emotion to make us care. It begins as an engaging story with an efficient fable-like atmosphere but soon turns into a melodrama and gives place to a second half that is mostly cheap, cheesy and artificial.
