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.
Classy cast, classic tale as only the French can do it:), 9 December 1999

When this mini-series premiered on Bravo last June, I was hooked. I've watched some of the great mini-series such as "Roots" and "Thorn Birds", but this one is my all-time favorite. I grew up reading the Dumas books and even wrote a paper on "Count" for my senior English class. It's been nearly 25 years since then (!) but this production brought it all back.
It looks just like you'd imagine Europe was in 1833. And how glad I am to see the French beat Hollywood to the remake of this one. There is no male American actor working who could touch this role quite like Gerard Depardieu--what a chameleon--he can be sexy, devious, disgusting, charming, tender all at the same time. I'd never seen any of his work before--but if this is any indication, he deserves every honor that's been bestowed on him by the industry. During the early prison scenes, he's dirty as the ground, as my dad used to say. But he certainly cleans up nicely once he enters Paris society. What a performance! And his is not the only good one. The entire ensemble--from Ornelia Muti and Florence Darel as the two women who love Edmond to Gerard's son Guillame as young Edmond and Serge Rubino as Bertuccio--is top-notch. Even in subtitles, the humor shines through, lightening what could have been just a cold tale of revenge After seeing it a second time, I knew what was coming and could just enjoy the beautiful language being spoken like poetry. Like nearly every other movie version ever made, this one does take liberties with the story--adding a second love interest for Edmond, among others, and ending very differently from the book--but it's still great fun.
