Les Miserables

Jean Valjean (Liam Neeson) left Cosette (Claire Danes) with her lover Marius. Inspector Javert (Geoffrey Rush) had a sudden realisation and kills himself by drowning.

FunKeh

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fantine is dying, she asks Jean Valjean to give a necklace to Cosette. There is a closeup of Fantine's head and neck and Valjean's hands enter the shot and begin to remove the necklace. A moment later she begins to cough and there is a cut to a two-shot of the pair from a few feet away. Valjean's hands are nowhere near her neck in the second shot.

Marius: If we can't win today, then none of us have a future.
Jean Valjean: You have love. That's the only future God gives us.

Question: I haven't read the novel, so I don't know if it's addressed there, but after Javert interrogates whom he later finds out to be Cosette in her own home, he goes back to find the house empty, and Cosette and Valjean are now living in another house. Is this an additional house that Valjean already owned as a safe house, or did he just rent it?

Answer: I'd say it was a house he rented.
