Movie Info

Stephane, only just arrived from Cherbourg, joins the anti-criminality brigade of Montfermeil in a sensitive district of the Paris suburbs. Paired up with Chris and Gwada whose methods are sometimes "special," he rapidly discovers the tensions between the various neighborhood groups. When an arrest starts to get out of hand, a drone is filming every move they make.

Critic Reviews for Les Misérables

All Critics (146) | Top Critics (31)

Its merely plot-driven depictions of its residents converges with Ly's merely functional direction, to flatten "Les Misérables" into the undistinguished style of conventionally apolitical and socially indifferent conventional crime dramas.

When it reaches its boiling point, "Les Misérables" absolutely roils.

January 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's an urgent portrait that captures a much different Paris than the original 1862 novel, but its themes remain. Victor Hugo would be proud.

[Ladj Ly's] film is best when it immerses us in small moments and naturalistic performances, propelled by Pink Noise's electronic score.

You might call these the slums, but the film is not slumming. The drone itself is a player in this work, and an overhead shot of a ragtag outdoor bazaar reveals the place's startling geometry.

With "Les Misérables," Ly delivers a passionate protest on behalf of an entire generation, whose future has largely been foreclosed.
