Even though there was no singing in the movie-version, This was my favorite. The film followed the Victor Hugo novel quite well with outstanding performances by Uma Thurman (Fantine) and especially Liam Neeson (Jean Valjean) I was moved to tears numerous times as I watched the story of a convicted felon who served serious time for stealing a loaf of bread and later becomes a mayor of a small town. He is suspected of being a former prisoner by the inspector Javert. With the confusion of the French rebellion and Valjean's adopted daughter Cosette's love, Javert realizes that he cannot kill Valjean, a man that saved his life. Javert's decision in the ending is powerful(although I will not give it away) this movie is excellent, and tear-jerking. this is a beautiful classic.
