One part I really liked was when Valjean is singing "Bring Him Home." On the next building is painted a large advertisement with a human eye at the center of it. While he's singing part of the song, the eye is right over his shoulder as if symbolizing God looking at him. Not very subtle, but that image is present throughout the barricade scenes and that's the only time it's really emphasized.
Never noticed that. Good catch!
I really really really really liked it. And this is from someone that's never liked a musical beside nightmare before Christmas. I also had never even heard of it unt I saw the trailers for it. It was quite tasty
?Yeah, they didn't really build it like the standard musical, so I hear a lot of people saying, myself included, that they don't really like musicals, but they loved this.
I've been debating wheter or not to see it. I love a great story but I dislike musicals and things that leave me feeling depressed!
Up to you, really. Like I said above, people who don't like musicals have been liking this. As for feeling depressed, this movie has some very downer parts, but very uplifting parts as well. It's not just one trip down (I'm looking at you, Boy in the Striped Pajamas).
