I am not very fond of musicals. I am also wary of screen adaptations of the books I know and like, and I am doubly and triply so when it comes to my favourite books.

Les Misérables of 2012 is all three and I loved it from start to finish.

The book was the first one, ever, I cried over. I cried over the movie, too. Still do, in fact. And this happens once in a couple of years, maybe. Has not since Truly Madly Deeply. All out tears rolling down my face crying, I mean, not just misty eyes. Awesome movie.

Мне не очень нравятся мюзиклы. Я также отношусь с опаской к экранизациям книг, которые мне давно нравятся, а к экранизациям любимых книг - с опаской вдвойне или даже втройне.

"Отверженные" 2012 года - и то, и другое, и третье. И я в них влюбилась с первых же кадров, и ни разу не разочаровалась за все два с половиной часа просмотра.

Я редко плачу над прочитанным, и "Отверженные" были самой первой книгой, над последними страницами которой я рыдала. Над фильмом я тоже сильно плакала, да и до сих пор ещё немного плачу. Такое случается раз в пару лет, наверное, последний раз было после просмотра "Искрене безумно глубоко". Плакала значит плакала, когда слёзы градом катятся и не остановить, а не просто в глазах плывет. Очень хороший фильм.

It was the first book I ever cried over too! Fantine does it to me, she just gets me every time. And the end scene...sigh.

It's always been my favourite musical, despite how much some people hate it :D

For me it was always the final scene, and in the musical, I first broke down when Eponine died.

I hope you write about it when you do :).

I started to sniff as soon as the film started. With the very first few notes. The rousing choruses of the crowd scenes and the young men at the barricades affect me the most overall. I absolutely love the Red and Black song. Overall I thought the film a really great effort from all involved. The music has been constantly in my head for several weeks. :-)

I am amazed at how well they chose the most important scenes from the book for the musical, and at the songs themselves as well.
