Trivia

This was a long cherished project for David Lean. He was due to commence filming on 1991 but he fell ill and died soon afterwards. It is probably one of the most celebrated scripts never to be filmed, and the cast would have included Dennis Quaid, Isabella Rosselini, Liam Neeson and George Corraface, with possible involvement by Peter O'Toole, Paul Scofield and Marlon Brando.

....you'll probably be pleased with the result. It's reasonably faithful to Conrad's novel, and considering the abundance of different characters and the intertwining plot lines all centering on the Mina San Tome silver mine, the miniseries manages to generally keep it all on track. The performances are generally very fine, particularly by the great Albert Finney, Colin Firth, Serena Scott Thomas, Claudia Cardinale, Lothaire Bluteau, Robert Escobar, Joaquim de Almeida, and Ruben Rabasa. Claudio Amendola is excellent in the title role, conveying both the self-confident ability and the vulnerable integrity of the novel's character very believably. Finney is also superb as the cynical Dr. Monygham. About the only weak performance is that of Ruth Gabriel, who is unconvincing as Antonia Avellanos.

It is admittedly a pretty long miniseries -- there's a lot of ground to cover -- but if you're willing to invest the time it's a superb tapestry of an adventure story.
