Movie Info

Not up to the classic 1935 presentation, this is still an excellent adaptation of Victor Hugo's epic novel. The familiar characters of Valjean and Javert and the agonies of injustice are all portrayed convincingly against a backdrop of 18th century France. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Les Miserables

All Critics (1)

It is not much of a good movie... What strength it has comes largely from the strength inherent to the material.
