      Carrying weight in a miserable world

      When I saw the fifth episode, I was forced to give up the show by Cosette's stupidity. Before that, I had watched the 10th and 25th anniversary musicals, as well as Annie's movie, probably because those tight plots couldn't hold too much love, so Les Miserables has always been in my mind. It's a classic, and I can't stand the fact that the BBC version has a Cosette plot because it has enough plot.

      Fantine and Cosette mother and daughter are both beautiful, but they...

      Personal perception, talk in general terms

      The TV series "Les Miserables" is divided into six episodes, each of which is an hour. It is based on the post-war period of Napoleon Waterloo and tells the story of the hero Jean Valjean's self-redemption. Hugo's novel of the same name in this play can be said to be a macro-edited masterpiece that integrates social, political, cultural and other elements of a specific period in France. The topics of human nature, belief, love, ideals, revolution and other aspects involved in this play...

      make me feel uncomfortable

      The background is real and the acting is okay, but after watching it, I don't think I'm watching Hugo's Les Miserables. Hugo does have the limitations of his history, naively thinking that the humanitarian spirit of kindness and love can save and change the world. But it's not that he magnifies his shortcomings so much. The characters in the play have no logic at all. They are completely drama for the sake of drama. After watching the whole film, there is nothing but feeling "well, the...

      Les Miserables

      It's actually really difficult to adapt a classic novel, because there are a thousand Hamlets in the eyes of a thousand people, and if you don't change it a little bit, you will be ridiculed by others. I started watching this TV series because I trusted the director and it was produced by the BBC.

      In fact, there are quite a few changes, but they are all within the acceptable range, which can be said to be unexpectedly good. The characters are very detailed, and many of them are...

      Feel free to write down the changes in the play compared to the original

      1. In the play, Bishop Bian Furu is just a flash in the pan. After completing Jean Valjean's soul guidance task, he is offline.

      But in the original work, Hugo used a volume at the very beginning to write about the bishop's words, deeds and spiritual greatness.

      This character is like a light that illuminates the entire novel. Although he never appears again below, the light is always there.

      2. In the play, Jean Valjean left from the bishop's house, met a child named...

      The quality is really good, but Marius' actor's expression is too aggrieved lol. ....

      After watching the BBC's remake, I sighed and felt sorry for the male protagonist, pity Javert, but helpless in this tragic world that is unfair and has no sense of...

      Shadow 2068: The plot is very complete, with more details than the movie...

      The cutest young Marius in the whole play. I feel that this version is more focused on love scenes, so that it almost brings Jean Valjean into the setting of pedophilia. Javert can't see justice in this version, but is a paranoid who ignores the overall situation and only cares about personal hatred. It feels different from any version of the character setting in the musical. Why is Cosette more in love, and the riots are rushing out? The one that best fits the setting is the rogue...

      The biggest feeling is: I really don't meet where in life, in different places, for decades, several groups of characters can always get together after going around, even the smelly sewers can meet old...
