L'Homme Qui Rit (2012)

French film directed by Jean-Pierre Améris and starring Gérard Depardieu, Marc-André Grondin and Christa Theret. The Man Who Laughs (also published under the title By Order of the King) is a novel by Victor Hugo, originally published in April 1869 under the French title L'Homme qui rit. Although among Hugo’s most obscure works, it was adapted into a popular 1928 film, directed by Paul Leni and starring Conrad Veidt, Mary Philbin and Olga Baclanova

I dont usually sit to edit a whole movie *beware there are spoilers in the pictures above* but this particular film (2012 adaptation) was very aesthetically pleasing. The story well known to me from the amazing 1928 silent film with my beloved Conrad Veidt but with a few “surprises”. I recommend both of them, each one has it’s own personal beauty and the story it’s really beautiful!
