The musical is still worth an appreciation even though the movie has much more impact. There are lots of aspects to consider in this masterpiece ranging from picturesque scenes (stage is well-decorated and the costumes and props are properly arranged) to outstanding talents (I personally find the singing and the acting excellent) and the lives of each main character are descriptive and well-understood. It equally manages to gain more audience impact as it reaches its second half, although the first half makes me feel like I am watching a play just to pass my time. It is indeed worth an exhilarating soiree with family and friends. Kudos to the cast and the whole production team! and to Gavroche (my favorite character) for his childlike, innocent features and his liveliness.
So far, I adore Gavroche for his childlike, innocent features and his liveliness, and Cosette. I equally admire Eponine as I find her relatable.
