Les Misérables @ Classic French Film Festival
1934, B&W, 279 min. DVD source
Hailed by film critics around the world as the greatest screen adaptation of Victor Hugo's mammoth 19th-century novel, Raymond Bernard's dazzling, nearly five-hour "Les Misérables" is a breathtaking tour de force, unfolding with the depth and detail of its source. Featuring stunning art direction and cinematography and unforgettable performances by the exquisite Harry Baur (who died tragically during World War II) as Jean Valjean and the legendary Charles Vanel as Inspector Javert, "Les Misérables" is one of the triumphs of French filmmaking.
