I don't usually agree with John Bennett's film reviews, but he got it right-on with Mis (Filmland, Jan. 3). My daughter was visiting for the holidays, and when I asked her to go with me I got: "No Dad, it's boring!"
I should have listened to her. It was beyond boring. Victor Hugo's classic has been filmed many times. In my opinion the best was a 1995 retelling set in occupied France, which stared Jean-Paul Belmondo as Jean Valjean. Check it out.
