Factual error: When Javert arrives in Paris to inform the Prefect that he has found Valjean, the government building displays the French Tricolour. This part of the film is set in 1823, during the Bourbon Restoration, so the flag should be the white, Bourbon flag.
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.
Javert: Reform is a discarded fantasy.
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?
