Les Miserables

Corrected entry: In the scene where Cosette first kissed Marius on the bench, you'll notice that for part of the sequence her mouth is open, i.e., she and Marius are "French kissing." Now, she seems quite experienced for a young lady who has spent the past ten years of her life living in a convent where the only men with whom she interacted were either her Father, the gardener, or various clergymen. (01:31:05)

Correction: Although Cosette could not have learned 'French kissing' from stories other girls have told her (because they would have been from the convent also) she was in love with Marius, she could have been following her instincts or even copying what he did.

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.
