LES MISÉRABLES

The epic and internationally-known Victor Hugo’s novel transposed nowadays, starting in the 90’. In this adaptation, Jean Valjean will become a successful resorts owner, Fantine is a single mum who will die from AIDS and The Thernardier are a horrible foster family. The series brilliantly brings us back to the 90’s and to its political and social context.
