Les Miserables (1998) Powerful movie. Spans many years and lives. The movie cd have played up the hatred, resentment part of Javert for Valjean based on Valjean and Fantine representing his parents. It was used, but not as it cd be in my opinion (but what do I know?).
The end may have been a bit too poetic for the rest of the movie.
All in all, a very good movie.
