Trivia

This particular version of "Les Miserables" was originally exhibited in two separate parts. Purportedly, these were shown on separate days - perhaps weeks or months apart. As recently as the early 1990s, the two parts were shown in a single day, with a brief intermission, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. See more »

Excellent version of Les Miserables
24 April 2017 | by dagbostar-992-143143See all my reviews

I saw this in April 2017 at a packed cinema at the Barbican - a 397 minute feast with live piano playing by Neil Brand. There were two 15 minute breaks and an hour for dinner and the majority of the audience stayed the journey. The version shown has been restored recently and is in pristine condition - the use of tinting (as well as toning and mordanting, apparently) was exceptional.

As for the film as a piece of cinema - brilliant. The time flew and the story is given time to unfold I have not read Les Miserables so it was all new to me and the dramatic nature of the story comes to life brilliantly.

Great acting and understated direction on photography add to it.

I hope, if this gets a DVD or Blu-Ray release that Brand is allowed to score the picture. Although he improvised throughout the film, he captured the moods on screen well.

If you can see this, invest the time and do so.
