Les Misérables - The Masters of Cinema Series Film Poster


Raymond Bernard directs this adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic novel. Set in 19th-century France, the film tells the story of Jean Valjean (Harry Baur), a prisoner who breaks his parole and spends the next two decades fleeing from obsessive police inspector Javert (Charles Vanel). In his quest for personal redemption, Valjean adopts Cosette (Gaby Triquet/Josseline Gaël), daughter of impoverished prostitute Fantine (Florelle), and is eventually elected as town mayor. But despite the events of the intervening years, can he ever really shake off his past?
