The definitive version of the later parts of the novel
15 March 2006 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

A must for any Les Miserables fans, the adaptation spends its time primarily on the later sections, beginning with Marius at his grandfather's house. It is thereafter extraordinarily faithful to the third, fourth, and fifth parts. (The scenes concerning the Bishop, Fantine, and the child Cosette are dealt with briefly in a flashback sequence.) It is the only version I've seen yet which contains Marius' cousin Theodule as well as the scene in which Gavroche meets the two little boys on the street. As stated above, a must for any Les Miserables fan. It's just too bad it's no longer available on video, even in France. I have a version which lacks subtitles, but it's so obviously faithful to the book that any fan doesn't need them.
