Upcoming French Radio Production

Postby between4walls » Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:22 pm

At least according to this article. Fourteen episodes will be aired between 24 December and 10 January.
Here day embraces night, and says: I will die with you and you will be reborn with me. From the heavy embrace of all desolations springs faith.

The real name of devotion is disinterestedness.

Best French language audio book so far, in my opinion. Pity they don't air new episodes over the weekend...

I am very interested in this adaptation but can't understand French. Who has listened to this whole adaptation? What characters and scenes are included? How authentic to the novel is it? How strong of an adaptation is it?

I don't understand everything, and don't remember everything right now, so I might be missing something, so while I think they included a lot I don't think they included anything that hasn't been included in other decent adaptations. Is there any particular scene you're thinking of?

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 deal with Bishop Myriel, Digne, and Jean Valjean from his early years up to Petit-Gervais. I like when an adaptation of these scenes are long/faithful/dramatic and includes minor scenes. For example, the 1982 USA radio adaptation includes five minutes which cover Bishop Myriel and the man he comforts before being guillotined. Another example is the 1944 Egypt film adaptation which includes the scene of Jean Valjean trying to sleep in a dog house in Digne and being scared off by the dog. In the book, what are your favorite parts of the first two chapters? :)
