This moment. Oh gosh this moment.
I don’t know if any of you listened to the commentary on your DVDs yet, but Tom Hooper said that Marius’s gaze shifts as the choir of students comes in singing Do You Hear the People Sing because it’s hinting that Marius can hear them. Marius, the sole survivor of the uprising, still has one foot in another world with the men he should have died next to. He fought next to the Amis and, had it not been for Jean Valjean, (who has just died) would have just died as well. Every person on that side of the barricade that night is dead and Marius lives on, still hearing their songs echo in his ears.
I thought he was looking at Hugh Jackman’s dead body, wondering what they’re gonna do with it
