A film can attract all kinds of emotions and moods of the audience through its audiovisual communications and cinematic expression, in which music plays a significant role in both understanding and interpretation of film content.It is interesting to explore the musical significance and the emotional aspect of the film out of a media and communications perspective and visual communications perspective because it?s a subject that belongs to the communications of scientific discipline as film is a media text which is working both as communicative and as audio-visual medium with its expressive aspects.The purpose of this bachelor?s paper is to increase and deepen the understanding of music's function and significant role in context with its reinforcing sense of visual expression in film. More specifically, it aims to explore the musical value of the expressive aspect of the media text in form of film musical Les Misérables (2012), which has been transmedialised from the novel of the same name, referring to the sound, music and song in relation to the film's visual expression.The research questions are at the core of the essay study: "how is music used to reinforce the cinematic visual expression?" and "how can music signify the narrative and highlight the emotional aspect of the film?" The theoretical framework is based on some of the key scholars assumptions such as Michel Chion (1994) and Claudia Gorbman (1987), who share the same theoretical views that the soundtrack seems powerful when it expresses its participation in a scene?s emotional moods as the music follows the scene?s rhythm, the image?s flow and contributes emotional and musical codes of emotions and expressions. According to Chion sound and image interact together to tell a story where sound enrich the image with expressive and informative values. Other important researchers in the field and their theoretical frameworks are included in the theory chapter. As in whole, aspects of musical communication and sound emotionalisation are seen by the previous research as a form of expression, where visual communication in the film is considered as important as the aural and musical for the narrative storytelling, and where the musical aspect with the interaction of the cinematic visual expression highlights the characters emotions and moods.The results of the empirical work is presented in about twenty pages qualitative content analysis together with its analytical perspectives that focus on the close reading of the narrative, visual and musical elements and their abstract narratives (emotional moods) in the media text?s seven selected film?song sequences. In performing of the analysis and interpretation of the media text content, the regard was taken to these before mentioned elements to answer the research questions and emphasize the purpose of the study as relevant as possible.The conclusion is based on the empirical work analysis and results, and the scholars previous theoretical assumptions in connection with my observations.Keywords:  musical  film  les miserables  soundtrack  emotions  moods narrative audio           visual expression  communication musicology
