Plot Outline:

This version of Victor Hugo's classic novel puts the relationship between Jean Valjean, convicted of a petty crime and released, only to break his parole and Inspector Javert, the man who makes it his life's goal to track him down - to the forefront. The pursuit consumes both men - professionally and personally - leading up to the student revolution in France. -- Chris Kavan

A MAN CAN CHANGE

Often mistaken to have occurred during the much earlier French Revolution (1789-1799), the more accurate setting would be the PARIS UPRISING of 1832. I have seen this on stage in Broadway in 1991( my first time to visit New York from Asia) and I was just consumed by it. My brother's educational theatre in the Philippines came up with a Filipino adaptation but was a far cry from the original. But it just goes to show you how far-reaching this play had been, let alone a third-world country adapting it to appear indigenous.

Hence the formidable challenge to come up with a film version. There were, of course, several deviations from the novel. Some would include reduction of roles for characters significant in HUGO's accounts. These will include the Thenardiers, Eponine and Azelma....
