See I thought it was going to be really awful and it wasn't as bad as I expected. It's nowhere near as good as the anime but there are certain bits that I actually preferred the anime. For example, when Oscar's meant to be getting married off, in the anime her would-be groom is Gerodere who is a nice guy throughout the series but in the movie its a really creepy guy so when Oscar turns up at the ball in the shiny white uniform it's much more dramatic, even without the shoujo sparkles.
You mentioned Bernard, he is actually one of my major gripes with the show because he's kinda meant to be Camille Desmoulins and he isn't. It just bothers me that they went halfway with it and didn't just put Camille in as a character in his own right as they did with Saint-Just and Robespierre. I love his convo with Saint-Just when Robespierre sends him to follow SJ. SJ kinda gets a bit of a character assasination (quite literally), which doesn't really bother me as I'm not that much of a Saint-Just fan, so I find it quite amusing.
