            Les Miserables (1978) - Victor Hugo's classic tale of pursuit, uprising and redemption, on which the musical sensation is based, is presented here in a lavishly restored edition. Jean Valjean (Richard Jordan - The Hunt for Red October), a handsome young woodcutter, is cruelly sen...t to prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Released from prison many years later, he faces freedom with an urge for revenge until he encounters the benevolent Bishop Myriel, who convinces him to become an honest man and to perform good deeds for others. However, Javert (Anthony Perkins - Psycho), the ice-cold Inspector of Prisoners, relentlessly purses Valjean and is determined to put him back in prison. Les Miserables weaves a tale of courage, daring, escape, and the indomitable human spirit. Filmed in extravagant locations throughout France and elsewhere in Europe, it is truly a masterpiece of production. A Tale of Two Cities (1989) - Dissolute lawyer, Sydney Carton, falls passionately in love with the beautiful Lucie Manette. But Lucie loves only her husband, Charles Darnay, who has renounced his hated family name of St Everemonde and with it his connection with the corrupt French aristocracy, to live quietly in London. But the year is 1789, and when Paris erupts in flames as the mob storms the Bastille and overthrows the old order forever, there is a debt of honour that Charles must pay. The Bastille has fallen, but Charles must return to Paris to help an old servant. Inevitably, Charles is arrested and sentenced to die for his family's crimes. All seems lost until Sydney Carton appears. His moment has come, and at last he has the chance to redeem himself, to make up for a wasted life of drunkenness and dissipation in one act of supreme self-sacrifice for the woman he loves. The Woman in White (1997) - A classic tale of mystery, conspiracy and abduction. When young tutor Joseph Hartwright arrives at the Fairlie Estate, he encounters a mysterious 'woman in white

            A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Krller-Mller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The story unfolds of a woman wh...o, in Van Goghs spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Krller-Mller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theos letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence. The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. Amid wheat fields and clouded skies at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Krller-Mller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helenes heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Goghs art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, au premier coup canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.
