Dupontel's film version of the ambitious Victor Hugo-like tome accomplishes precisely what modern cinema seems to be lacking when old-timers complain that "they don't make 'em like they used to."

Full of rich historical details that anchor the sense of agony and resentment, but the plot is driven by huge coincidences... It doesn't really matter in a film so big on circus-like theatrics and grand flourishes.

Mixes high craft, surrealist humor and extremely dark themes - of trauma, death, corruption and manipulation - in ways that hold together rather well.
