Les Misérables (2012)

Les Misérables

Les Misérables was a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862. the story took place during the June Rebellion in Paris, following the lives of several characters, especially Jean. he was originally a prisoner until after he was released and broke parole, creating a new life for himself while evading the persistent Inspector Javert.

it was absolutely refreshing to see familiar actors singing instead of speaking the dialogues. it was slightly lengthy due to the elaborated story telling lyrics, otherwise captivating. it had us relived the past, experiencing the miserable lives of these characters during those years. fighting for their lives as well as applying any ways as long as it fed them. the countless encounters between Jean and Javert was by far the most interesting pair. also the lovely Cosette and Marius.
