The lighting in this clip is made to make the audience feel Eponine's sadness and loneliness. First and foremost, nighttime is shown by the moon's blue/gray glow from above/behind Eponine, told by her shadow cast in front her. At first her body is almost entirely dark, while the street is lit up behind her, emphasizing the emptiness of the street and her loneliness. Later, the camera zooms in on her face with a slow falloff. Then, the low key lighting emphasizes her situation's bleakness.
