But to answer your question, there is one shot where she takes her first customer and lays down and he lays on top of her and clearly they are having sex. You don't see any skin at all but I would imagine It would be awkward for preteens.

I loved that too - that was how Eponine died in the book, along with her keeping the note from Marius, thinking they could both die on the barricade together. Only in the book, Marius didn't realize it was her until he found her bleeding to death in an alley hours later.

Has anyone seen this? Someone posted this of his parents' reaction to the movie...

The full song never made it to the Broadway production, what was left of it moved to Act 2 when he busts Javert, and again when he dies. More recently, it ends after "that only goes to show what little people can do" during the Javert scene, and in the Broadway revival in 2006, his death scene was changed to a song called "Ten Little Bullets", although I believe it's been changed back to "Little People".

I actually liked his new "Look Down" lyrics in the movie, I wish it was included on the soundtrack...when they called it a 'highlights' album, they weren't kidding. Hope the full version is out soon.

Just got back from the movie...I loved it! Even Russell Crowe. No, he's not a theater-singer like we've seen on stage, but he's such a good actor that I can look past it. And that moment after the barricade falls and he sees Gavroche? Forget it...it was already sad enough.

I've seen the show 9 times, and sometimes it's a little hard to break away from what you know from the stage version, but the movie is really, really good. The live singing is amazing...that had to be the most brutal version of "I Dreamed a Dream" I ever heard. And Hugh singing the Soliloquy at the beginning was amazing.

I also loved that they incorporated so much of the book into it, especially the stuff with Eponine, and the convent. Even Marius' grandfather was there!

I need to see it again, but I was thrilled with it.
How do you do my names Gavroche
these are my people here's my patch
nothing to look at nothing posh
nothing that you`d call up to scratch
this is my school my high society
here in the slums of san michele
we live on crumbs of humble piety
tough on the teeth but what the hell
think you`re poor, think you`re free
follow me follow me


I was talking about introducing his character and motivation, not his name. Of course I know the lines he sings at the beginning of Act II (also omitted from the movie). quoted above. Not needed in the movie, we get to see the slums and how Gavourche is a beggar. His "theme" is "Little People", but you only hear a snippet of it in the movie while he's on the barricade, not enough to recognize unless you already know the music. So when he sings the reprise after being shot, there's nothing to link it up to.

Saw the movie today as a complete Les Mis newbie, and I loved it! Wonderful acting, wonderful production, so heartbreaking and moving. Loved Anne and Hugh, of course. So impressed with the singing of Eddie and Samantha. And Aaron Tveit, mmmmm. In my book, he should have been Marius. More the "love at first sight" type.

No quarrel with Javert casting, but the first song on the ledge seemed a bit weak to me. And Amanda's voice at times took me out of the scene.

I thought the young boy who played Gavrouche was wonderful. But can anyone tell me why this French street urchin sounded like a Cockney boy?

Anyway, as I said, loved it!

I would be a hesitant to take a pre-teen to the show, not so much for the scene with Anne Hathaway but for a series of shots during "Master of the House".

Master T invites "Santa" into the establishment and he ends up in a more visually explicit scene than the "lovely ladies". Not much skin seen but it is completely clear what is going on.

Just my opinion.... since the question was asked......

I loved the film.
I cried every single time Anne Hathaway was on screen. She was perfect.

The only weak spot for me was Russel Crowe's singing, though I thought he did slightly better on "Javert's Suicide"

Some of the missing lines bothered me, such as when they cut Marius' "Every day, I wonder every day who was it brought me here from the barricade?" because they kept Cosette's line and it ended up making no sense

Gavroche's lines quoted above are in the movie, he sings them at the rich people in the carriage.

duoh. beat me to it. I think that 'review' is hysterical.


My thoughts? loved it. I saw the original in London in 1987. Have loved it ever since. I was expecting to be disappointed by Crowe, but low expectations help... because I didn't think he was that bad. I had such high ones for Jackman, that it was hard for him to deliver (although I still do love him).

overall, I loved it.

(btw, for the parental discussion... there was a pretty young girl behind us and mom clearly covered her eyes during the Anne H scene described above. We heard her saying, "stop it. I want to see. what's happening?")

In the stage production many of the poor sing with a cockney accent. My question is why does Sacha Baron Cohen sing with a french accent for Master of the House, and then lose the accent for the rest of the film?

I did not care at all for this film. I was very excited to see it, and I desperately wanted to like it being a fan of the stage production. All throughout I kept trying to give it another chance, but from the factory scene on it was largely a disappointment. One of the few bright spots was Colm Wilkinson as the Bishop of Digne. That man can sing! So happy to hear him, however brief it was.

I've been sick as a dog since Christmas and it's KILLING me that I haven't seen it yet.

How intense is the scene where Fantine sells her teeth? I've been kind of anxious about that one.

Anyway, I can appreciate the comments here but it really did not come across the same way for someone like me.

Maybe someone would have been better for the role besides Russell Crowe but I thought he was great and haunting even. I thought him jumping to his death was the opposite of what was described above.

I really liked the closeups. For some reason, that added a lot to my experience of this movie. As a hairdresser, I was quite taken with the hair and makeup throughout.

And, of course, watching Anne Hathaway have her hair cut off and knowing it was for real--I just cried watching that scene. Hearing her sing "I Dreamed A Dream" is something I will not soon get over. Not sure why I was so moved by her character but I definitely was. Her singing voice was so secondary to the emotion/words and the whole scene that I would have a hard time telling someone how her singing was...it was so raw and real for me.

One More Day's close-ups were actually helpful to me, having never seen the play or anything--I actually got a lot out of those.

I'm not picking on the PP's opinion. I thought her view was interesting. I'm just giving my thoughts since I am an extreme case who went not knowing anything about this movie. My DH even liked it (he did not even fall asleep! A Christmas miracle, probably. ) and followed along--I thought all the singing would loose him and he has a bit of a hearing issue (too many emergency sirens!) but he did fine and even clapped at the end.
I pretty much agree with you, Brenda. I've never seen the play or any movie before, so was wrapped up withe everything happening, and nothing to compare it too.

Crowe's Javert was my sons favorite character. I don't really have one as I thought there were so many wonderful scenes, and this has also stayed with me since I saw it yesterday.
