The man's gone!

He stole the silver!

He's gone!

He stole the silver!

Was that wise, Monseigneur,

taking in a man like that?

Good thing

he only robbed us!

Good Lord!

What a terrifying thought!

Come in.

Monseigneur, we -


He's a bishop?

You arrested this man?

You've made a mistake.

He's not a thief.

The silver.

I gave them to him last night,

along with

two silver candlesticks.

He's terribly poor.

I had nothing else to give him.

Why didn't you take

your candlesticks?

Mrs. Magloire,

go fetch them.

He has employment

in Pontarlier. Let him go.

You mean

we should release him?

You must.

Here you are, my friend.

Go in peace.

Should you pass this way again,

you'll always be welcome.

The front door is always unlocked,

day and night.

And now...

I can wish you luck...

because I know

you will use this silver

to become an honest man.

I'm convinced of it.

Good-bye, my friend.

Mister, my coin.

My coin, mister, please.

Give me back my coin.

My 40-sous coin!

- What is it?

- It's mine, mister.

Give me my coin.

I want my coin!

It's under your foot.

Take your foot away!

Run along, you little brat!

What's this?

Hey, boy!

Hey, boy!

Here's your 40 sous!

Where'd you go?

Hey, boy!

Come back!

Come back here!

I can't keep your money!

What have I done?

What a wretch I am!

Forgive me, Monseigneur.


The chains again?

Enough is enough.

You promised me

the next quadrille.

I promise.

Twice with the same partner -

how sinful!

He's a nice dancer.

Your little blonde's not bad-looking.

I wouldn't mind trying my luck.

No use, old man.

She's virtuous.

- She sent you packing?

- I'll tell you if she does.

She's the only one

who won't allow familiarities.

She comes here every Sunday

Victor Hugo

Victor Marie Hugo (French: [viktɔʁ maʁi yɡo] ( listen); 26 February 1802 – 22 May 1885) was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic movement. Hugo is considered to be one of the greatest and best-known French writers. Outside of France, his most famous works are the novels Les Misérables, 1862, and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (French: Notre-Dame de Paris), 1831. In France, Hugo is known primarily for his poetry collections, such as Les Contemplations (The Contemplations) and La Légende des siècles (The Legend of the Ages). Hugo was at the forefront of the romantic literary movement with his play Cromwell and drama Hernani. Many of his works have inspired music, both during his lifetime and after his death, including the musicals Notre-Dame de Paris and Les Misérables. He produced more than 4,000 drawings in his lifetime, and campaigned for social causes such as the abolition of capital punishment. Though a committed royalist when he was young, Hugo's views changed as the decades passed, and he became a passionate supporter of republicanism; his work touches upon most of the political and social issues and the artistic trends of his time. He is buried in the Panthéon in Paris. His legacy has been honoured in many ways, including his portrait being placed on French currency. more…
