This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Valjean pleads with Javert to have Marius delivered to his home and given the care of a doctor, then going to his own apartment at Rue de l'Homme Armé. Javert calls on a cab and fulfills both of his requests. Valjean asks Javert to let him take Marius home, saying he will return afterwards. Javert lets Valjean go while he stays behind.
   After getting Valjean home, Javert returns to the Seine to think, then goes to a police station to leave a note containing his final thoughts before throwing himself into the river. Javert stays by the river close to the sewer exit, jumping into the river after one final revery.
   Marius stays at his grandfather's home for months to recover from his wounds, then is entirely focused on his wedding with Cosette. Marius returns to the Café Musain to grieve his fallen friends.
   Valjean confesses his true identity to Marius in order to avoid the risk of having it tarnish his and Cosette's wedding, leading to Marius mistrusting him. Valjean mentions his past to Marius, but the latter is not happy to see him go.
   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.
