The whole 1957 version - English dubbed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h4PFAhr ... re=related

It seems there are more adaptions online as well...

That is... I'm lost for words. How did you find that? Thanks SO much! (It seems to be a relatively good adaptation, too...)

There were two Les mis movies made in Egypt both called "El boassa" (Or "al boassa", depending on transcription). Since this is in colour, I'd guess it's the 1978 one. I'll ask a friend of mine if she can read the opening credits...

Simply by looking for long "Les Misérables" videos at youtube. ;) Still no luck in finding the whole australia day concert or the whole Duisburg 96 proshot though. :( But at least there's also the complete "Waterloo", even in German.

What do you mean by "the complete Waterloo"?

Some of my recent finds (don't take the first three too seriously...):

гаврош (Gavrosh), 1966 Soviet cartoon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6Uqh5mpm-w
and: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qrmRAsi ... ure=relmfu

Kozete, 1977 Latvian or Lithuanian clay animation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kSNPTZIABI

Gnana Oli, 1972 Tamil movie, at the best loosely based on Les mis (there's a surprising amount of English spoken...): http://www.einthusan.com/movies/watch.p ... mil&id=398

Kundan, 1950 Hindi movie, if you ever wanted to know what Bollywood!Les Mis could look like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0gu2DRSP0M (starting here)

If anyone is interested in the last movie; I have a complete description, part translation of it, which I can share. Just ask.

Thank you, it will be useful to improve my russian
Moreover, I absolutely adore Edith Piaf's song at the beginning

trompe la mort, Auf die Barrikaden, thanks for the links. That claymation Cosette is cute. And the edith Piaf song kinda cracks me up at the beginning of the cartoon. "hey, this is french! And this is french! yeah, just slap 'em together!"

Les Mis is really universal. So many different cultures adapted it in film. Makes me wish for a Russian musical version even more so. It would surely see success.

I'm afraid it won't help you much to improve your Russian, Martine. It's silent...

Yes, it's curious to see all those adaptations from different cultures. I really hope to get my hands on one of the Japanese adaptations that transfer the story into different times of Japanese history for that reason.

Yes, I noticed it was silent after having written the post :oops:
@Ulkis, yes, I know that the song put in that cartoon didn't make much sense, but I really like that particular Edith Piaf's song (irrespective of the cartoon)

OMG...just discovered the 1933 version and it's depiction of the barricade battle. Epic can't even describe it. It has some flaws, it's shortened, and Grantaire's role is totally off but...almost everything is straight from the book, and whatever was added to it works fantastic. You'll see what I mean, just watch for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olw9CZwy ... el&list=UL

Yup . . . when they sing La Marseillaise on the barricade it's a chill-inducing moment. I also love when Valjean and Marius exchange a silent conversation when the revolutionaries are singing. Valjean kind of gives this look as if to say "oh those poor kids are gonna get killed" and Marius agrees, but straightens up his shoulders and goes to join them.
