* The expressions on everyone's faces when [[spoiler:Marius threatens to blow up the barricade]], as if they all just realised how soon this could all be over. Enjolras, ever the stoic leader, looks genuinely scared, and when he [[spoiler:takes the torch away from Marius after the soldiers retreat]], it sounds like he's just started breathing again. Courfeyrac's quiet "Christ..." is especially gutwrenching when you remember [[BackstoryHorror just how close he and Marius are in the novel.]] The slightly-mad look in Marius's eyes is the eyes of a man who has nothing to lose any more.

* [[spoiler: Javert's death in the film is ''horrifying'', because at the point where he jumps, there's a series of three man-made waterfalls in the river, and punctuating the orchestral accompaniment is the sickening ''crack!'' of his body as it hits the rock or wall over the falls]]. This was about the point where tearing up became full-on heartbroken sobbing.

* Enjolras is backed against the upper window of the Cafe Musain, [[spoiler: having just watched all of his friends die. Then Grantaire (who could easily have abandoned them all) walks in and takes his place next to Enjolras. The two get gunned down together. Doubles as a shout-out to the book.]]

* Valjean finding Fantine's. She is reduced to an almost animal-like state, snarling contempt and spitting at his face. Finally, she weakly raises her arms to protect herself as if ready to be hit again. Instead he carries her in his arms and vows to bring her daughter Cosette to her.

* Eponine's solo "On my Own"
** She is extremely devastated that Marius will never reciprocate her love for him.
** She betrayed her father to protect Cosette and its assumed she's no longer welcome home.
** She walks in the rain and no one is there to comfort her.
** "And when I lose my way, I close my eyes... and he has found me". She closes her eyes then opens them back with a bright smile. Those few seconds where she pictures Marius are the happiest of her day.
** Marius allows her to stay at his flat but he doesn't talk nor offer her clothes or even a towel to dry off, and runs off to Cosette.
