Quotes

Jean Valjean: There lived a man whose hame was Jean Valjean He stole some bread to save his sister's son. For nineteen winters served his time In sweat he washed away his crime. Years ago He broke parole and lived a life apart How could he tell Cosette and break her heart? It's for Cosette this must be faced If he is caught she is disgraced The time has come to journey on And from this day he must be gone Who am I? Who am I?
Marius Pontmercy: You're Jean Valjean.

A fantastic celebration of a great show
18 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every performance was impeccable. Many of the performers rival and in some cases surpass those of the 10th Anniversary Dreamcast. Seeing the show on the big screen with a bigger sound system really make the nuances of the genius score come to life. What is so great is the way they made use of soft split screens to be able to watch multiple performers' reactions and "dialog."

Norm Lewis, whose subtle facial expressions and genuine passion commanded the stage/screen, sang Javert with such power and depth that I actually, for the first time, empathized with his character. Alife Boe's Val Jean was brilliant, with an operatic quality. Samantha Barks shined as Eponine with a stunning vocal performance. Ramin Karimloo was a standout with his brilliant portrayal of Enjolras. I didn't quite understand the decision of casting Nick Jonas as Marius. He really gave it his all and had some nice moments in the sweeter songs, but lacked the vocal fullness and attack for the more powerful songs. It was adequate but uncomfortably contrasted by his much stronger, seasoned cast mates.

The occasional cut to various instrumental highlights was a wonderful addition and seamlessly included the orchestra as an important part of the ensemble. The encores with the original cast, backed by a chorus of hundreds was breathtaking. If you're a Les Mis fan, this movie is a must.
