Amazing adaption of Les Miserables
24 September 2007 | by Ziggy5446See all my reviews

Albert Capellani produced the first multiple reel feature, "Les Miserables," a production which marked a distinct forward step and still holds favor with the picture public. However, it is here, in his five hour 1913 adaptation of Les Misérables where Capellani made his crowning achievement, earning international respect for himself and Pathé. The film is typically distinguished by his masterful use of long shots, open spaces and crowd scenes. Perhaps a little stilted at times, but overall holds it's own with just about any pre-20s silent film. Today, Capellani is rightly considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of cinema.
