This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Valjean retreats into his apartment at Rue de l'Homme Armé during his final days, his absences from the Gillenormand home being attributed to journeys that Marius's servant Basque tells him about. Valjean tells Marius himself to give Cosette the false tale of him being away on a journey.
   When Fauchelevent is being crushed by the cart, Madeleine/Valjean tries to convince someone to help lift it in exchange for money, then when nobody answers, crawls under the cart himself and attempts to lift it but succeeds only slightly, leading to all present helping him and lifting the cart together. Madeleine/Valjean lifts the cart by himself to let Fauchelevent out.
   Montparnasse is the leading member of the Patron-Minette gang absent from Valjean's kidnapping. It is Gueulemer who is absent.
   Valjean is recaptured in Paris a few days after fleeing Montreuil and brought back to the Toulon galleys. He escapes by pretending to drown after saving another prisoner from falling into the sea. This is not shown, as Valjean seemingly goes to Montfermeil immediately after fleeing Montreuil.
   Javert quietly joins the revolutionaries as they head to the barricades, appearing to them as an unremarkable man in the Rue des Billettes. Javert volunteers to try and spy on the National Guard for the revolutionaries.
