Les Misérables (2012) Movie Sex & Nudity

A dramatic scene where a girl sells herself into prostitution and does it with a man. Close-up shots of shoulders and above. No movements, the man lays on top of her for a period before paying her.
The song “Lovely Ladies” consists of sexualized lyrics, about sailors being “hungry for a poke” and “dropping their anchors”. About twenty or so prostitutes are shown dancing provocatively, shaking their backsides and torsos (clothed) and cupping their breasts, partially exposed by a lot of cleavage.
In the “Master of the House” song, a female prostitute is briefly depicted straddling on top of a man (dressed as Santa Claus), thrusting forward as a man below the bed steals the man’s money. The couple are completely clothed.
Eponine is briefly seen in underwear, wrapping her breasts tightly with cloth to pass as a man. Fantine is seen in undergarments as well, with some cleavage showing. Marius and Cosette kiss passionately.
A man lifts up a woman’s skirt using his cane and touches her clothed breasts.

Fantine eventually sells herself as a prostitute, and there is a brief scene of her and a male customer having sex. Fantine is seen from the front, her dress slowly being pulled off (shown no lower than her shoulders), pushes her back onto a makeshift bed and pushes up her skirt, thrusts on top of her while she is crying; he then pays her and leaves. The actual sexual activity is only onscreen for a few seconds and contains no nudity.



Film review:Translated by XX www.rabudo-ru.com


The postscript is written at the beginning

More than two months have passed since the film review was written, and the lingering melody in my mind has finally quieted down. Unexpectedly, the release of domestic films ushered in another wave of discussion. This film review, in fact, is not a film review. It should be said that it is a collection of gossip about the characters in the film and the casting process. It is something you especially want to share with your neighbors after watching the film. I know that compared with professional douyou, the knowledge reserve is still dwarfed, but I am still grateful for the opportunity to throw bricks and attract jade, hear so many profound or interesting opinions, and even become friends with comments on douyou.

Although I love to make complaints about it, I want to say that I love this musical, and I love this movie (strictly speaking the movie is a physical version of the musical). I cried in the middle of the road, and I was totally immersed in OST in the three weeks after the movie. Once a man came out of the lab late at night because he felt too much homework and miserable life, so he unconsciously hummed there is a castle on the cloud… I love the performance of every actor, even Russell Crowe, who is about to be blacked out by the media and fans. The more I sympathize, the more I see it, the more I feel cute. I once saw a report that director Tom Hooper used all the live simultaneous voice instead of afterwards dubbing, which makes me think it’s amazing that the actors have such expressiveness. The thunderous applause I heard in a small cinema in Ottawa during the movie shows that most of the audience recognize the film.

That day, an old classmate said that when watching Les Miz’s domestic show, one third of the people left the show, and some commented that it was like watching foreign Peking Opera for 2 hours. Fortunately, in addition, I heard almost all praise, and even saw the repeated brushing of Les Miz’s true love powder with the original spirit of brushing couplet. I still believe that the appeal of music can gather a group of Les Miz fans or musical audience in China. After all, there is no market foundation. The Chinese version of Les Miz’s musical is still just a plan or a dream.

Valjean — Hugh Jackman

The first time I saw Uncle Hugh on the big screen was of course because of his Wolverine. Later, I saw his performance in the deadly magic and marveled at the outstanding acting skills of big long legs. From the aspect of characterization alone, uncle Hugh well deduces a Valjean from struggle to rebirth, from bearing responsibility to finally becoming a part of the revolution. Because the film is not limited by the stage setting, the characters’ emotions are amplified in various natural scenes. Therefore, compared with musical drama, Valjean in the film version allows us to see more characters’ inner world. For example, when Valjean escaped from prison and faced the sunshine in the mountains, he felt that he had a new life but had a slim future. Later, he was desperate, red eyes and angrily denounced the sad world that could not accept him. Later, he faced Javert’s grief and anger when he wanted to re arrest him, and finally looked at Cosette and smiled before he died, Then he said to Fantine in the sky that I have completed my responsibility and confessed my life’s sense of relief and happiness… Once the expression space is expanded, the character integrity presented can not be expressed by any version of musical Valjean.

In addition, a new aria was creatively added to the film – the song “suddenly” in the carriage after Valjean rescued little Cosette (the word appears repeatedly in Hugo’s original French book as brusquement). The aria not in the musical well depicts the mood change of Valjean’s sudden transformation into a father, It fills the emotional gap between Valjean and little Cosette in the musical. The kindness in Uncle Hugh’s eyes when talking to little Cosette also indicates his responsibility to the girl in the coming years.

Of course, for a film from beginning to end, we can’t ignore the musical expression of the actors. When Uncle Hugh and Neil Patrick Harris sang and danced anything you can do together at the Tony Award Ceremony, it was amazing that uncle Hugh was good at singing and dancing. Oscar’s hosting show also proved his stage talent. However, the singing function that only stays at the hosting level can not guarantee that it can support the aria of all male protagonists. After all, Valjean’s classic role has been performed by too many musical masters, and it is not easy to surpass it. Uncle Hugh’s final answer was satisfactory but not perfect, such as the controversial bring him home. People who have seen the 25th Anniversary Edition of Les Miz should remember that in that edition of encore, there are Valjean chorus in musicals of various periods. The first selection of the chorus is bring him home, which requires high skills. At that time, every Valjean showed a thousand twists and turns of voice, and the mood of starting to pray, then compassion and finally dying was treated by Uncle Hugh in the film as a flat and straight narration with a hanging voice from beginning to end. Speaking of the chorus version of bring him home for the 25th anniversary, let’s talk about the first voice of that song – Colm Wilkinson. A big surprise in the film was to find that the actor of bishop was Colm Wilkinson. He was Valjean in the London premiere in 1985 and Broadway premiere in 1987. He was the lead singer in the 10th anniversary. He also played the male host in Shanghai station in 2002. So far, I still remember the classic God on high, hear my prayer, which is a little hoarse, and he talks like a sob. If you have seen the phantom of the theater, you will find that when a group of phantom sang for the 25th anniversary, he was the kindest old phantom. Mr. Kou’s peaceful and redeeming smile combined with the warm light in the Church always makes people feel at ease. It’s really appropriate to ask him to play the role of bishop. Since the old version of Valjean and uncle Hugh played the opposite play, I don’t know what the old master will say about Uncle Hugh’s singing.

Javert — Russell Crowe

If the movie version of the selection will most likely make complaints about the musical powder Tucao, then Russel may be all loopholes. Russel is suitable for many tragic heroes, such as Nash and gladiator. However, different from these absolutely positive roles, Javert, a sad character, always appears as a national machine in the first half of his life. If you want to interpret the coldness and persistence of the policeman, Russel obviously can’t interpret this role with his previous heroic experience, but his performance inertia seems to make him write the subtext “in fact, I’m a good man”. If the character of the characters in the early stage is not in place, the motivation of the tenacious pursuit in the later stage becomes far fetched. In terms of singing skills, Russel, who once played in the band, seemed to have a narrow range, so he couldn’t go up the treble and down the bass. He sang and felt like reading the lyrics. When I walked out of the cinema, I couldn’t help feeling that Javert was a rapper. Some douyou commented that he sang with a rock and roll accent. Stars and the last suicide were originally the aria of Javert’s inner monologue climax. Because of the unique setting in the film, the focus of watching the film can easily become: eh, why does he like walking so much? Will he really not fall? Hey, why don’t you go inside? Oh, don’t worry. He really jumped this time… Javert, which is closest to my imagination, is Philip quast in the 10th anniversary. Unlike norm Lewis’s anger from beginning to end in his 25th anniversary, quast’s voice is harder and his eyes are more like an eagle. In particular, he sang Javert’s self-reliance and stubbornness in the original book.

If you are interested, you can watch the confrontation of Wolverine and gladiators in the pub. Russel’s horse steps and rock tone are very interesting when he is high: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fB6LIsntpg

Marius — Eddie Redmayne

I believe that most musical fans have only Michael ball’s voice. At the end of the 25th anniversary, the old actors appeared to sing one day more. When Michael ball’s romantic and gorgeous voice came out, it won the warmest applause in the audience, The audience is cheering loudest for Michael ball because this was the only time the whole night they got to hear the part of Marius sun properly. Nick Jonas is a pop singer. Although he has Broadway experience, the limitations of his voice and lung capacity always make his singing full of the sense of difficulty of dying at any time, followed by the feeling of more effort when the audience listens to him. Fortunately, Eddie Redmayne, the little freckle in the movie version, did not disappoint people any more.

Before watching Les Miz, my whole impression of Eddie was his cute smile in my week with Marilyn (please don’t say he is Torres), so I’m not sure whether he is suitable to play a hot-blooded youth. This Eddie gave me the initial feeling that the sound line was charming but the expression was blank, but then the deep love in love was expressed incisively and vividly by the graduate who had received professional music training in Eaton. His best performance was the song empty chairs at empty tables after the war. In an interview, Eddie said that when he saw that the crew was hiring people to shoot Les Miz, he recorded his empty chairs at empty tables on his iPhone, and then sent it to his agent to show that he could sing. As a result, his agent sent this paragraph to Les Miz’s producer without telling him, so he won the role of Marius. Eddie’s own voice is easy to fall in love at first sight. Quoting a Douban drama review, Eddie has a heartbreaking sound quality between boys and men. There’s a grief that can’t be poken. The camera began to give a close-up of his side face for a long time, from emptiness to sadness. Finally, singing oh my friends, my friends, don’t ask me, the girls’ hearts trembled at the moment when tears rolled down. During ABC chorus, Eddie’s voice with enough discrimination also supported the whole singing. The only regret is that Marius’s light was too strong to suppress his best friend, Enjolras, a man who should have been shining like Apollo and the leader of revolutionary youth.

Enjolras — Aaron Tveit

The most impressive scene was the last dawn. Enjolras found that they were the only one left in the city fighting, and the people they guarded finally abandoned them. Then at this time, the little boy sang do you hear the people sing, and then a slow and loud chorus. After the last Harry Potter movie, I seldom met a movie with a sour nose from beginning to end, but I didn’t expect that the moment when tears burst out most would be this song. After the most tragic fight, it was a classic scene of Enjolras hanging upside down on a wooden bar. Thank the film for keeping this. In other words, students who have seen mission girl may find that Aaron tveit, the actor of Enjolras, has played a guest role as Nate’s cousin. In fact, this guy is a real Broadway actor and serves as the lead singer in the popular musical catch me if you can (students on the 75th and 77th floors recommended him “next to normal”). However, Aaron tveit’s voice is too soft. It seems that his passion and strength are not enough to be competent for the heroic role of Enjolras. In red and black, he especially lacks confidence and is finally covered by Eddie’s voice. In addition, due to the arrangement of the film, Enjolras has a low sense of existence here. Maybe you will find that the little boy Gavroche is more like a revolutionary leader than him.

In the 25th anniversary, Ramin karimloo was his favorite version of Enjolras. When he stood up in the last one day more chorus and sang the sentence one more day before the storm among a group of predecessors, he was as expressive as other old singers. In 2011, Ramin began to sing Valjean in Queens theatre. The voice is very beautiful but slightly young. Of course, Ramin’s performance in the 25th anniversary version of the phantom of the theater is amazing enough, and I personally think he is the most handsome of so many versions of phantom. Since his appearance and voice are very suitable for places outside the stage, it’s a pity that the film didn’t invite him to play Enjolras.
