Using Hugo's very own words as a backdrop, the poster poignantly illustrates one of the most pivotal scenes from the novel - where Bishop Myriel passes on to Jean Valjean a set of candlesticks, and enduringly changes his life. The scene in the poster depicts Jean Valjean having fallen to his knees in awe of this great kindness. The Bishop has also lowered himself to his knees as an indication of his own belief that all human beings - regardless of social standing or past transgressions - deserve to be treated as equals and with the same grace. Les Misérables is a tale that continues to resonate with readers even today. The chronicle of one man's journey from darkness and despair to light, love, and grace - and the touching moment which indicated the commencement of this new chapter of Jean Valjean's life is movingly depicted in poster.
