Les Miserables Manila is definitely worth the price and traffic. The effects and props are what you would expect from an international performance group. I love this novel and I would definitely watch it again and again and again. I’ve been wanting to watch it since I read the unabridged book some 10 or so years ago as well as watch the film four years back. The story still drives me to a sort of lonely guilt that I just love feeling.
I purchased the tickets without knowing who the heck played who because this was the first time Les Mis would be in the Philippines. I booked VIP on opening day and chose the best seat in the house which was right in the center without being too close or too far; just right to see, hear, and even feel everything.
My favorite author of all time will always be Victor Hugo. I read the unabridged version of Les Miserables when I was but a boy of 16 and I always say it’s my favorite book of all time. No other book comes close. But let’s not dwell on how beautiful the book is. I’m here to do a review of perhaps the movie of 2012. I’m not going to dawdle on the details nor am I going to bring you the staples of movie reviews.
