      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...

      A world where the class-defining poor cannot survive. Fantine is too stupid. She keeps making bad decisions. She associates with scumbags. She gives birth to a baby without going to the man to bring her own. She sells her beautiful long hair and white teeth. If the world is so ruthless to you, I advise you to live meanly too. Do you want to talk about kindness with evil, and do you want to talk about obedience with violence? A priest can influence Jean Valjean, but he cannot change people like...

      16 minutes to discard. . Those who have browsed AO3 several times but haven't seen the original said that the only thing to watch is javert, which is far worse than the 25th black brother. . I don't know if it's more in line with the original, and I don't care...
