Reviewed on 3/31/2008...
This is one of the best versions of Les Mis. out there. This was the version that got me interested in the story, and convinced me to read the book (which is no easy feat, let me tell you!)
It moves quicker than most versions, and is well acted.
It is, of course, WAY different than the musical, so please don't judge it based off of that alone.

Watch it once, so you can know the story, watch it twice and read the book.

Movie Reviews

DVD is missing 30 minutes
C. S. Junker | Burien, WA USA | 06/26/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This 1978 British television production is one of the better English-language adapatations of Les Miserables. Unfortunately, the DVD release is missing 30 minutes of footage. Originally shown in two parts at a length of 150 minutes, the DVD edit has been chopped down to 120. (The VHS tape edition plays complete.)

Had I known this disc was an incomplete version I would not have purchased it. If you want to see the complete film --- and it's well worth it --- you'll need to buy the VHS tape."
Still moving after all these years....

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this when it was originally telecast in the late 70s on TV as an Hallmark special presentation, and I never forgot it. What a relief to find it's available on video. However, I'm disappointed that it's been cut down to 2 hours - the original telecast on TV divided it into 2 showings (2 consecutive evenings), about 3 hours apiece, if I remember right. Not including commercials, I would estimate the original (uncut) version was about 4-5 hours. So, in this VHS version, the story moves VERY fast to squeeze it into 2 hours. Still great to watch, but again, it's very trimmed down and every scene moves very quickly. It would be great in the future if it would become available in the original uncut version on DVD or a 2 or 3-set VHS version."
Best Version of Them All
John Paul Jaubert | Houston, TX | 12/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I only give five stars to works of art that stay with you and change who you are.
Quite simply, this is the best english-film-version of the story ever made. I think it's the best film-version period. If you've never seen it, see this first then watch the rest. If you don't know the story at all and can't bring yourself to read the book, see this.
As has already been noted by other reviewers, you should get the full-length version. Also, it's rather strange that this was made for television. We tend to credit such works as being of lesser value. But that would be quite mistaken in this case."
