Victor Hugo: Le Dernier Jour d’un Condamné

In protest against the inhumanity of the penal system of his day, and particularly against the death penalty, Victor Hugo created this image of a man on his way to the scaffold, who confides his last thoughts, describes life in prison, and imagines the moment of death. This filmed version is the very exemplar of how a good story can be transferred brilliantly to the screen. (French, 90 minutes)
