In 1985, an extended cut of the film aired on French TV in the form of a miniseries of four episodes with a running time of 55 minutes each. This version (not counting episode credits and initial resumes from scenes from past episodes) contains between 15 and 20 minutes of scenes not seen in the theatrical cut of the film. See more »
I've seen quite a few versions of Les Misérables but this one is for sure one of the best. Maybe the 1958(Jean-Paul Le Chanois) version with Jean Gabin as Jean Valjean gets close to it but Lino is literally awesome! The 1985 TV adaption is about 218 min long - 30 min longer than the 1982 cinema release and split in four parts. So take your time, it's worth it! 9/10
