Film Discussion: Les Miserables

What prompts Valjean to persist in the face of deadly peril? Why is Javert compelled to suicide in his quest for “justice”? This film of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece throbs with tension between destructivity and longing for connection. How does the music enhance the immediate emotional experience?
