When I watched the movie Les Misérables (2012), I was surprised to see them singing! It looks funny to me. The story is excellent and touching but I find it quite inappropriate to see them singing. I feel like watching and opera show, not a movie, and I don't even like opera.
I have seen many animations where singing is very common. For cartoons and animations, singing is very matching because it is mostly designed for kids and for entertainment. I have seen other movies like Enchanted where they sing a lot but it is very matching with the beautiful scenery, dress and the beautiful actors. But the movie Les Misérables is not like that. People are very dirty, the places are dirty, there is only death and struggles. And they are singing :( I think it should be done like a normal movie instead of the actors singing always. I also don't like the way they sing. It is only spoiling the movie.
Why was Les Misérables (2012) movie made in musical style? Would it be better if it was done like a normal movie, which I think will make it more real and more touching?
