Although it has a poor technical production, this TV series is the most faithful and complete adaptation of Les Miserables I have ever seen. I saw it on TV when I was ten years old, and I just loved it; then I asked my parents to buy me the novel and I read it. I became a Les Miserables fan. Every passage of the novel is shown in the 20 hours series. The acting is great, Sergio Bustamante is the best Jean Valjean I ever seen; Blanca Sánchez is beautiful and tragic as Fantine; Carlos Ancira, the best Mexican theater actor, is a wicked Thernardier, and Diana Bracho does a sweet Cosette. It is really a pity that the TV channel that produced it does not longer exist. I doubt that there still exist a copy of this TV-series.
