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>

This is probably the best Monte-Cristo Movie ever made!
29 July 2000 | by nevermoreSee all my reviews

This six-part mini-series is absolutely close at Dumas' Book on the storyline. The scenery and costumes are quite perfect, not exaggerated. Jaques Weber did an excellent job as Comte, he gave him the perfect mixture of the coolness of the Comte and the Pain of Dantés, and though he is playing the character a little theatrical sometimes, he gave him the depth he is needing. Above all, the way he changes personality when he plays the Abbé Busoni or Lord Wilmore is really great. He uses just a few little things like changing the way to speak, glasses or wigs, but he seems to be a completely different person. And the other cast is filled with big european names also, they all were great! No comparison with this new version with Gérard Depardieu which was so highly praised and presented such a wrong story with bad actors!
