Critic Reviews for Les Misérables
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.
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.
