* CaliforniaDoubling: Much of the film was shot in the Czech Republic, mainly for the period architecture; due to the march of time, parts of Prague now look more like 19th-century Paris than Paris does.

** [[spoiler:The change to Javert's suicide. Valjean is ''right in front of him'', does nothing to stop him, and just walks away, relieved. This, after he'd already saved his life once.]]



* FreudianExcuse: Played with. Javert cooly explains to Valjean that his father was a thief and his mother a prostitute, which he notes is a parentage he is ashamed of, but will not hide. His dedication to the law is clearly a polarized response to his parents, but he clearly has a particular hatred for prostitutes. This is demonstrated when he allows Fantine to be brutalized, and kicks the dog.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Jean Valjean is still alive at the end of the movie, though this could just be due to the fact that the film ends long before the book did.
