In the opening scene we meet Valjean, Javert, and a bunch of other criminals, all in various states of dilapidation or disarray.
Damn, those are good-looking distressed pants
Impressive entrance of Javert
After Valjean’s parole he discovers there’s no such thing as an easy living for an ex-con:
After a day of hard labor…
…he finds that the pay’s or the birds….
…..and accosting the farmer doesn’t help much
Yet the shitty note declares his “freedom”
…he feels sorry for himself, but….
….the Bishop de Digne take pity on Valjean and invites him home
Luckily, there’s fine dining at the Bishop’s residence:
The bishop’s sister enjoys her wine tremendously
While Valjean’s studies the sterling content….
Too bad, because Valjean takes her favorite mug
…and the bread as well.
And who’s gonna miss a couple of silver cups? Who’s gonna stop him?
The French gendarmes, that’s who.
They cannot help but notice a bum making off with a bed sheet. It rattles…..
Once again, Valjean’s set free.
