Les Misérables

Dawn at the barricades in Paris, June 1832 - the final attack. Gavroche and Éponine have already fallen during the preceding night, and Le Amis D'ABC are now outmanned and outgunned in their fatal struggle for democracy - Enjolras, Courfeyrac, Feuilly, Grantaire...

I'd highly recommend this video - not so much for literatural accuracy, but for the sheer emotion of it.









Let others rise to take our place, until the earth is free!

Quoting Nick Pascale Now I have to ask: DID YOU SEE THE SHOW?
Thanks, glad you like it! I've been very fortunate to see the show at both The Queen's Theatre and the Barbican in London - excellent, both times. Gutted I missed the Anniversary Concert at the o2, but what to do...

This is the comment I just left on pop for your work...there nothing wa said about Les Miserables. I clicked on: more on moc pages and there it was LES MISERABLES! ironic! Nicholas Pascale says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. March 31, 2011 at 6:47 am The very first thing I thought of when seeing the LEGO MOC was: THIS IS A SCENE FROM THE BROADWAY SHOW “Les Miserables”! In fact it was my favorite scene indelibly etched in my mind and memory bank. But I have to tell you this, as much as I am so proud of the Broadway Stage this scene was 100% better in LONDON’s East End Theater! Because the stage was 1 1/2 times bigger then Broadway’s! What made this scene so incredible was the low motion effect! Recall this is live no camera tricks! Well I thank you for this Moc it brought back a pleasurable moment in time and could be the 1st LEGO MOC I’ve ever seen that recreates BROADWAY and a Broadway Musical at that!…and the TONI goes to… Now I have to ask: DID YOU SEE THE SHOW?

Thanks all - and for the scores =) Leda, I spent six months ploughing through that book, so I know rather too well how thick it is! It was worth it though, even if I had to skip a couple of chunks describing political ongoings and whatnot post-1815... Oscar, Bricklink is a wonderful place! ;) Paul, the book certainly was heavy going! I did enjoy the film, although I think it lacked the passion of the musical. And, having seen Michael Collins since, I get really confused over what his character is like! W. Mark, it could have fitted Duplo too, perhaps - there's a Duplo fence in there. I seriously thought about Pathos, but reckon I can do something off the top of my head for that.

Exquisite!!!! I must admit I have never read the book... have you ever seen how fat that thing is?! But I know the musical by heart. Love it so much that the thumbnail pic of this moc brought a tear to my eye. 5 points.

Excellent build! I love the use of the flippers....can't say I would have ever thought of that myself. I may borrow that idea sometime in the future!

You are a stud. The barricade is really smoothly done. Fantastic piece of work.

Well, I first thought it was a scene from the German Revolution in Prussia - nevertheless: Score = 5

Absolutely stunning work! I personally liked the movie (with Geofrey Rush and Liam Neeson) better than the book, but that's just my opinion:) As for the MOC itself, you've got mad skillz! I wish I could build something with that emotion!

You could have passed this off as an entry for the forced perspective or pathos categories... it's got great details in many aspects, and that makes for a really cool creation. Great work, and best of luck with the judges.

Not seen the show or read the book but the movie's good. You've captured the barricades well, and I like the cannon effect.

Love it. I've not read the book, but the movie was outstanding. This would work in the pathos catagory too by the way.

This is a beautiful vignette! The flipper technique on the roof and over the windows makes me wish I had more than 5 so that I could try it out.

Hey, what did I just trip over? Oh, it's a 5 point moc! ~ Chris.
