Les Miserables

Synopsis: This is by far the best version of Les Misérables ever made in my opinion and the critics. Charles Laughton makes this movie, but literally every scene and every character add to this amazing film. If you have never seen a Charles Laughton movie this one will get you hooked. His portrayal of Inspector Javert is 2nd to none. He tracks the wanted man Jean Valjean throughout the movie and the twists and turns are so well done even you movie buffs will not see what's coming. The movie takes you through Valjeans life and many crossroads that shape his life. My words don't do this movie justice. This is a must see Drama. The scene with the priest always gets to me, be sure to catch all the dialog. This movie will make you laugh though it is not a comedy. It will make you mad. It will move your heart in a good way. You will become many of the characters as you watch the film. The less you know about the film the better in my opinion which is why my summary is so vague on details. You can only

You know the regulations.

Report to police headquarters twice a week

for the first year, once a month for the second...

once every three months

for the third...

and thereafter, on the first of every year

for the next 1 0 years.

Failure to report is a breach of the law

and means immediate arrest.

Give him his passport and his money.


- My passport is yellow.

- That's for your attempt to escape three years ago.

Give him the money that's due to him.


Jean Valjean, 1 09 francs.

Oh, no. No, it should be 1 7 1 .

1 09.

Don't you think

I've worked it out for myself?

Ten years' work, 3,652 days...

1 7 1 francs.

You've forgotten deductions

for Sundays and holidays.

- Well, you- this-

- Are you going to take it or leave it?

- Making trouble already?

- No, I've-

Calm yourself, my son.

Calm yourself.

[ Accordion ]

It's a lie. No room, no food.

- There's plenty of food. My money's good, isn't it?

- That isn't it.

- What then?

- We don't want your sort around here, that's all.

I'm a free man. I don't owe you anything.

I don't owe anybody.

Why shouldn't there be a place for me?

There is- outside.

[ Men Laughing ]

[ Laughing Continues ]

[ Thunderclap ]

Get out of here! Leave me alone!

You leave me alone.

So they left you this, eh?

Who are ya?

You want to know who I am?

I'm a convict. Yeah.

I served my sentence.

Now my punishment begins, it seems.

Look, in prison

they gave me a bed of wood.

Now I have one of stone.

[ Laughs ] That's what they do

when they set you free.

[ Laughing ]

Well, call the police, why don't you?

Have me turned off this as well.

Have you tried to find shelter?

Shelter? I've knocked at every door.

- Have you knocked at every door?

- Yes.

Have you knocked at that one?

- No.

- Knock there.

Victor Hugo

Victor Marie Hugo (French: [viktɔʁ maʁi yɡo] ( listen); 26 February 1802 – 22 May 1885) was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic movement. Hugo is considered to be one of the greatest and best-known French writers. Outside of France, his most famous works are the novels Les Misérables, 1862, and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (French: Notre-Dame de Paris), 1831. In France, Hugo is known primarily for his poetry collections, such as Les Contemplations (The Contemplations) and La Légende des siècles (The Legend of the Ages). Hugo was at the forefront of the romantic literary movement with his play Cromwell and drama Hernani. Many of his works have inspired music, both during his lifetime and after his death, including the musicals Notre-Dame de Paris and Les Misérables. He produced more than 4,000 drawings in his lifetime, and campaigned for social causes such as the abolition of capital punishment. Though a committed royalist when he was young, Hugo's views changed as the decades passed, and he became a passionate supporter of republicanism; his work touches upon most of the political and social issues and the artistic trends of his time. He is buried in the Panthéon in Paris. His legacy has been honoured in many ways, including his portrait being placed on French currency. more…
