Re: BBC’s ‘Les Misérables’ Miniseries

Great there is a trailer! I am very excited for the trailer and this adaptation. I liked a lot how Monsieur Mabeuf appeared at the very end waving the flag. The actual editing of the trailer didn't seem too strong but the actual adaptation does look great so far. Ideally it would have the proper dar...

Re: BBC’s ‘Les Misérables’ Miniseries

I'm excited to watch this adaptation! Hopefully this adaptation has a fairly proper tone and doesn't improperly remove/add/change stuff from the story, although with a short-ish length of maybe six hours I'm not expecting it to not be missing a lot. It's great to see that big adaptations of Les Misé...

Re: 1925 movie by Henri Fescourt

Great! It appears that you saw this at Barbican in London. Any news on a Blu-ray release? :) I haven't seen the musical yet, only the 2012 UK film. I plan to eventually watch the 1995 musical version though. I recommend that you watch the musical. It's nice to see some rare adaptations being found a...

Re: 1971 Spain TV adaptation Los Misérables

I bought the Julie Rose translation years ago without knowing about the differences between translations, and it's the only translation I have owned. I am currently reading the book and near the end of part 4. I skip most of the foot notes but maybe the next time I read the book I will read the roug...

Great! I'd like to know more about it. Can you please post it or send me it? :D

I saw the latest post about it here but wasn't sure if it was really found since there was no link to it:

Re: 1971 Spain TV adaptation Los Misérables

What chapter are you on in the book? I am currently on the part where Jean Valjean and Cosette escaped into Petit-Picpus. My translation is by Julie Rose, which is yours? I haven't seen any musical besides the 2012 UK film. I am watching now the eight minutes where Fantine and Cosette are in Montfer...

Re: 1971 Spain TV adaptation Los Misérables

Hello _23623_, did you read the book? Also do you mean the regular music or the 2012 UK film musical? I have seen the 2012 UK musical film, but not the regular musical. You chose a great non-musical adaptation to watch first! :) Let me know if you need a certain part translated and I will try, even ...

Re: Upcoming French Radio Production

Please tell me any more information about this adaptation that you can remember. I don't speak French so I am not that familiar with this adaptation. How much did you listen to? As far as specific scenes go, I am most interested in the first two chapters of the book (A Just Man, and The Fall) which ...

Re: What is MOST complete filmed version?

It's difficult to have a long enough adaptation considering the time/effort/money required, and the interest/attention span of a casual fan and a random viewer as opposed to a committed fan. However, most adaptations are too short. Adaptations often change stuff, add stuff, and lighten the tone too ...

Re: What is MOST complete filmed version?

Check out my post that Ursula_F quoted. When comparing adaptations, here are some things to keep in mind: -The longer the adaptation, the better -Adaptations change stuff that was in the novel -Adaptations add stuff that is not in the novel -Adaptations vary in tone from too bright (2007 Japan) to m...

Re: Unnecessary deaths?

That adaptation is the 1978 UK TV movie (aired over two nights). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tj-VmrMYtUI It's a great adaptation, so everybody needs to watch it eventually. The DVD is 2 hours long, and the VHS is 2.5 hours long. But I think very few people realize that this adaptation is actuall...

Re: Possible new tv version!

I'm excited for this adaptation. I haven't seen their adaptation of War & Peace, but the IMDB ratings/reviews are strong even though not extremely strong. Even with many new adaptations being made over the years, most actually aren't extremely strong. So I should temper my expectations some, eve...

Re: 1971 Spain TV adaptation Los Misérables

I didn't see Gavroche's brothers or the Elephant. You can find them in the 2007 Japan version and the 1961/1962/1963 France TV movie trilogy version. Other versions should also have them but I can't remember right now. I went to sleep yesterday and had the ninth episode of this adaptation on repeat ...
