Review by anonymous (posted on 30-Jan-2007)
I originally saw this movie on TV when it was originally shown. I purchased a VHS, and am now looking for a DVD. I read the book, saw all the different versions of the movie, including the recent one which took liberties with the script and didn't conform with the times. THIS version with Richard Jordan and Anthony Perkins is the very best, most moving version of Victor Hugo's incredible book that I have ever seen. My son said this movie changed his life (He watched it on TV.) The charters seemed like real, struggling human beings. I wish movies like this were watched more often by families, and even in our schools to counteract degrading shows like some of the talk shows, and noisy, violent movies that do little for character, or show little integrity. I cannot say enough good things about this movie, and it remains one of my favorite...an oasis in TV's occasional wasteland.
Do you know something we don't?
