Television adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic novel, which follows Jean Valjean as he evades capture by the unyielding Inspector Javert. Set against a backdrop of post-Napoleonic France as unrest begins to grip the city of Paris once more.
Whilst an interesting subject and done reasonably well for a TV Movie, Torvill and Dean's story deserves bigger treatment really.
It did hold one's attention and there were some things one didn't know before.
The cast did a pretty good job all in all.
One big pity is the lack of credits for the skaters who did all the work in this film.
Given the subject matter they deserve some recognition.
