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..
Hello all. I'd definitely say that this is a great movie. Neeson and Rush both gave spectacular performances, and the first part of the film is really suspenseful. I was a little disappointed with the second half of the film, though. I don't think you're given enough time to get attached to Cosette and Marius, and the few love scenes they have become a bit tedious in comparison with the tension between Valjean and Javert. I don't have a clue about the book, however. Does anyone who's seen the film know how closely it resembles the storyline?
