Fully restored in HD. An epic in the tradition of "Doctor Zhivago" and "Ryan's Daughter". Still considered as the greatest film adaptation of Victor Hugo's masterpiece, "Les Miserables". Jean Valjean (Jean Gabin) is paroled after serving a 19 year term in a hard labor prison for stealing some bread. After spending a night in a missionary, he tries to steal some silverware, but he is set straight by a kindly bishop (Fernand Ledoux) who protects his from the police and gives him a set of expensive candlesticks and makes him promise that he has to become a new man that day. Nine years later, Valjean is now a wealthy industrialist and a mayor. He eventually befriends Fantine (Daniele Delorme), a single mother turned prostitute and risks everything when he comes to her aid, after she's nearly arrested by police officer Javert (Bernard Blier). Javert previously served as a guard at the prison Valjean was held in and becomes suspicious that the mayor and Valjean are the same person. The all-star cast includes legendary character actors Bourvil and Serge Reggiani. Directed by Jean-Louis Le Chabois.
