The film is complete in itself

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The fourth and last film de luxe from this house dealing with the incidents from Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables." It depicts the closing scenes of the story and concludes with the death of Jean and the marriage of Cosette. The characters are all accounted for, and while the story has been altered in some degree to give it more dramatic force and to clarify it somewhat for the silent stage, it is sufficiently accurate to enable one to trace it without difficulty. The film is complete in itself, though it is the concluding one of the excellent series which has attracted so much favorable comment from lovers or the novel and from the enthusiasts in motion pictures. It is needless to repeat the story. Almost everyone has read the novel and understands what these interpretations mean. The acting is up to the standard of the former pictures of the same subject and the photography is clear in most instances. The escape through the sewer is well managed, and there are other scenes in which the dramatic situations are fully developed. - The Moving Picture World, December 11, 1909
