Storyline

A TV mini-series adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel. Edmond Dantes is falsely accused by those jealous of his good fortune, and is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in the notorious island prison, Chateau d'If. While imprisoned, he meets the Abbe Faria, a fellow prisoner whom everyone believes to be mad. The Abbe tells Edmond of a fantastic treasure hidden away on a tiny island, that only he knows the location of. After many years in prison, the old Abbe dies, and Edmond escapes disguised as the dead body. Now free, Edmond must find the treasure the Abbe told him of, so he can use the new-found wealth to exact revenge on those who have wronged him. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Best Monte Cristo ever
10 May 2013 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This is by far far the very best adaptation of The count of Monte Cristo, very true to the book, with superb Edmond Dantes - Jacques Weber, a jewel, unlike the 1998 minis with Gerard Obelix Depardieu(worst adaptatio never). Have seen this mini series in 1985 and trying to get a copy,with zero results (there is a German DVD, with German language only..maybe at the end I'll end up with it). Can't believe such masterpiece lays in dust with no possibility to see it again. Dantes is slim, dark hair as described in the novel, when you see it, all the characters appears the way you imagined them when reading the book..A must see (if you have the chance to..)
