Today’s post will be a review of the ever famed classic theatre piece entitled Les Miserables… I just recently watched its 2012 remake and all i can say is… THUMBS UP, BRAVO!

The play was based from one of the greatest novel (by VICTOR HUGO) to be ever written during the nineteenth century! It is considered as one of the most acclaimed work of art to be ever made into a musical. Above all, IT IS ONE OF MY CLASSIC FAVORITES that I do FANCY and RECOMMEND HIGHLY.

This photo is the movie poster, their very own version of the classic little lady, Cosette in every book cover of the novel. Cosette was played by Isabelle Allen (child) and in turn portrayed by Amanda Seyfried.

Both artists played EXCELLENTLY. I LOVE THE CHARACTER in Cosette’s voice (both by Isabelle and Amanda). It was innocent and pure… fine and precise… The notes were on point and the pitch was fantastic…

Alas, Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman is reunited once again after we have witnessed them perform musically at an opening number during the 2009 Oscar’s. Both artists did an impeccable job and justice to the characters. Singing while acting = PERFORMANCE an its truest essence!

Russell Crowe can truly sing and act at the same time. I loved his expressions, his rendition.. His portrayal in general.

Not to mention, one of my favorite actresses EVER, HELENA BONHAM CARTER… She is very theatrical, her roles since the beginning are elevated beyond imagination due to her portrayals… (e.g. Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows etc just to name a few)

I will not post the summary of the story as I want you all to watch it.. :) It saddens me that most children nowadays do not remember or know of the classics… when I was little, as early as 1 year old (even in her womb she would say) my mom would introduce me to these… (But of course, earlier than 3 y/o we remember nothing :P) by 3 y/o we do remember something.. :) I was bombarded with the time-honored films.. (e.g. The Sound of Music, Marry Poppins, Chitty-Chityy Bang Bang etc. just to name a few)….
I appreciate these remakes, so as to catch up the the present and future generations… That we may not forget, that we may always rekindle… the goodness and best of the past… and that these are IRREPLACEABLE… just TIMELESS…
Stay tuned for MORE! I got lots to offer… ;)
