: One more thing, totally irrelevant but I've been wondering. Was the story Les Miserables (the original book by Victor Hugo) set during the French Revolution? Or was it post Revolution, like 1800s? I was just discussing this with a friend, and I've never actually read the book myself. By the way, the newest version which came out last year is excellent, definitely a must see for any Les Miz fans. It starred Liam Neeson and Uma Therman, and this one is set sometime during the late 1800s I think..
It was post revolution. Hugo (1802-1885) wrote Les Miserables as a contemporary social condemnation of 19th century post-war life in France.
The version you mentioned, with Liam Neeson, was very good!
