My Penny of View: Jean Valjean has been released after served 19 years of prison for stealing bread and he would be on parole. Prison guard, Javert has an eye on him. Valjean traveled from town to town but he couldn't secure a job for living due to he was on parole. One day, he was offered food and shelter by a bishop but he stole his silvers when he wanted to leave. Later, Valjean caught by the local authorities but the bishop informed that the silvers were gift to Valjean. From that moment, Valjean swore he will start a whole new honest life with new identity; but he broke his parole later on. Javert didn't let go of Valjean for escaped from parole and still finding him from every single corner of the world. What will happen to Valjean? Will Javert manage to find Valjean?

This is a musical film, which means they sing for every single words. There are 3 parts of the movie, first when Valjean was a prisoner, second part was when Valjean met Fantine and third part was when grown up Cosette met her love. However, Javert has been chasing Valjean from the beginning of the movie until the end. The development of story was well structured and the features of the characters changed according to era. A lot of great actors were starring in this movie which including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe. I can't recognize Hugh Jackman in the beginning because he was so skinny with large eye bag. I heard that Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway purposely lose weight to carry the character that they play. You can see they are such a professional actors. It's a enjoyable movie with great songs, actors and story.
