Shirley I haven't seen the film, but quite agree Philip Quast was the best Javert!


Shirley Report 30 Jun 2013 17:46

Have just seen film of Les Mis. Brilliant BUT NO ONE can play Javert or sing like Philip Quast!

Oh BC...What a shame you missed him.

OH should be in the court scene, fairly early in the film, so hopefully we can concentrate at least that long.

Not sure that Mr Daff would even recognise him.......

Brown coat and tall hat covering longish unkempt hair and his own home-grown facial hair.

Gotta see the film if just to spot your OH, Gwyn :-D
Stagewise - Loved it, and the production, at Bristol Hippodrome and would def go again.

Funnily, last night the 90's Les Mis film was on Sony Movies with Liam Neeson as Valjean ((no singing though)). Recorded it to watch later, but at least it had flashbacks to the quarry to start with !!!

:-D Gwyn. Hope you will watch very carefully and spot him! Many years ago my brother had a very very small part in Cromwell. I bent my head to get a sweet and totally missed his performance! :-D BC XX

We will probably have a family trip to see the film, in the hope that at least one of us will spot OH in his debut part as an extra.
Our guess is it will only be a fleeting glimpse, but at least we know where and when to look !

Yes I suspect we will Mau, we never go to the cinema though, Last time I went was ages ago with DiL to see Mamma Mia, goodness knows when OH last went. Apathy really and not likeing the area where the Glos cinema is. May go to Cheltenham though.

Oh Rose, I don't think I will ever see it that often, it isn't cheap to go to the theatre these days.

Like Hugh Jackman, think he will be ok as Jean Valjean, not sure about the young girl who plays the older Cosette (the young girl from Mama Mia) her voice is a bit shaky.

WHAT ....that's way too many times Rose lol

I've seen the show and love the music so have been listening to Ken Bruce's show this week as he's played extracts/music from the new film. This morning Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean) was singing 'Bring him home' I think he's smashing,though not singing I have to say.
Seeing as you're a big Mis fan Ann think you will have to see the film too ;-)


'Emma' Report 10 Jan 2013 13:56

Ann am so jealous have not seen it live yet (have 25 year concert)

Don't fancy the film but OH and youngest grand daughter do.

Ann, a lady on local tv newshas just said she's been to see the stage show 957 times , so you have a way to go yet :-D


AnninGlos Report 9 Jan 2013 17:08

I would go to the theatre to see it again tomorrow if I could. Love the music, have the CD and the DVD (10 year concert and 25 year concert).


BarneyKent Report 9 Jan 2013 16:37

Went to see Les Mis at the theatre about 15 years ago. So bored I nearly left at the interval, wish I had, the second half was more depressing than the first. It remains
the second most boring musical ever in my book. The most boring was Fiddler n the Roof.


Frank Report 9 Jan 2013 13:14

My wife and her friend are going to see it next week. It will be to loud for me, so will stay at home


AnninGlos Report 9 Jan 2013 12:34

We have seen the stage show four times, I can't think the film will have the impact that the stage has, the relationship with the cast. Also don't know why they have changed the opening scene to being in water pulling a boat rather than working in a quarry. Have to make our mind up as it is in Gloucester in the next week or so.

Rambling Rose Report 9 Jan 2013 11:19

Ann, I haven't decided whether to see the film either, the clips I have seen don't grab me...probably because I don't much like Russell Crowe, and his voice just doesn't come anywhere near the notes hit by Philip Quast :-(


AnninGlos Report 9 Jan 2013 11:02

Be interesting to see if the film has as much impact, we haven't booked yet, still not sure about it.


AnninGlos Report 9 Jan 2013 11:00

Wonderful Rose thank you. And then I picked up the encore finale of the 25th anniversary concert at O2 which was even more wonderful (even though we have the DVD still watched the clip).
