"26/1 Rewatch 22/2 Review from the rewatch up here: http://www.laajakuva.net/post/show/55 It's also in Finnish, sorry. Such a delightful surprise! I haven't read Victor Hugo's original novel or seen the musical, so my shock at seeing this film be an actual quality product was even larger. And I'm pretty sure knowing the source material might lessen the effect, but hey, doesn't concern me yet. So as most of you know, this is an epic story, spanning dozens of years, following Jean Valjean, pl"

Films That Cracked The Rock (Tearjerkers). (27 movies items)

"Out of joy or tragedy? Tragedy. Which parts? Anne Hathaway's jaw-dropping and heartbreaking singing of "I Dreamed A Dream" and the ending of when Jean is dying and Fantine's spirit greets him."


SJMJ91 posted a review 1 year, 7 months ago

A depressing musical with energetic passion.

“To adapt a stage musical, an extremely popular one at that, onto the big screen requires a tremendous amount of determination, co-ordination and most importantly, a high level of knowledge. For director Tom Hooper and co to produce Les Misérables from the play is no easy task, especially when not only trying to be as faithful as possible to the original source but at the same time, to make a few steps away from it. Many stage musical adaptations have worked in the past, particularly in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, because they managed to grasp both a staged and cinematic atmosphere onto the screen. Thankfully the same can be said for Les Misérables but it still has weak links.

Following his Oscar winning success for The King's Speech, Tom Hooper took charge o” read more

"18.01.2013 cinema premiere Good Oscar candidate. It started a bit quite and didn't had the kick in the beginning, but the story soon began to form the film, and the music with it. I was a little disappointed at the beginning (not much), but it was better in the middle and was fantastic in the end. The last 1/3 of the film was great. The music together with the story, picture and everything just fit perfectly together and exploded into a firework of magic. For now I give it a 8/10, it may chang"

" This was the "Oscar movie" that I had sworn off seeing. And I had absolutely no intention of seeing it. But I was a little too emphatic about how opposed to seeing it I was, to the point that a friend of mine made it a point of dragging me to see it with her, and as you can see, she succeeded. I was afraid that this movie would be exasperating from start to finish. Incredibly, of the two hours and 40 minutes it runs, I think I only felt exasperation during those last 40 minutes.

"Prisoner 24601, known as Jean Valjean, is released from prison and breaks parole to create a new life for himself while evading the grip of the persistent Inspector Javert. Set post-revolutionary France, the story reaches resolution against the background of the June Rebellion. This movie has some beautiful scenery and a great cast! It has a different style of music than the average musical. A good form of storytelling I thoroughly enjoyed they should make more musicals with the likeness of th"
