Superb acting as can usually be expected from the great Gérard! The movie follows the book quite well, and therefore does not miss. Great human story of love, betrayal, and the plan for revenge

Great Movie and great play by Gerard Depardieu. It follows the book closely. I was a little bit disappointed at the end. I was expecting more a duel to happen between Dantes and the Count de Morcef.
Overall great experience watching this French version of the movie.

When I was a child, my second book I have read before The Three Musketeers was The Count of Monte Cristo. This was a staggering reading experience for a barely 10 year old child. I had then the opportunity to read the books in French, the original language Alexandre Dumas, senior had written.

The Count of Monte Cristo movie is a masterpice, so beautifully set and depicted that it will catch all the romatic souls attention 'til the very last image. Something was not incremented properly though : the music. The musical theme is too much emphasized in the movie. The movie director, Josee Dayan, should have made more judicious choices as musical classical diversity. Besides this, I strongly recommend that you buy this movie for yourself or that you offer it as a gift to some knowledgeable literary personal friend or relative. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of this magnificent movie.

An amazing depiction of the book with incredible acting.
Gerard Depardieu does an amazing job playing the Count of Monte Cristo.
The series consists of 4 episode which are close to two hours long in length.
In my opinion, it is better for one to watch the series vs watching a movie.
I do not believe a 2-3 hour movie will do such a lengthy story justice, especially a story in which all minuscule details are important.

MonteCristo is supposed to be a tall, slender young man, and despite the fact that Gerard Depardieu is an excellent actor, seeing Monte Cristo come out of 18 years of confinement and be about 75 pounds heavier then when he went into the "Chateau d'If" really stretches ones' suspension of disbelief throughout this well-wrought miniseries. Of course it also doesn't help that he is blond when he should be dark haired. Nevertheless this is a very good rendition of the story, with skilled actors who fill their roles with relish and panache as would be expected in a period piece and with actors playing along side the caliber of someone such as Gerard Depardieu. It was a worthwhile purchase.

Une série qui ne respecte que sommairement le livre. On ne reconnaît même pas Dantes, interprété par Gérard Depardieu. Contrairement au livre, il est brouillon, sa démarche pour exécuter son plan est brouillon et l'histoire ne colle pas en plusieurs points à la série.

L'interprétation de certains personnages est vraiment mauvaise. Si on prend Mercedes, on voit presque le télé souffleur dans ses yeux. Au moins, en tant que catalane, on aura au moins pris la décence de prendre une actrice à l'accent espagnol. Fernand de Morcef, qui est son cousin, lui n'en a pas...

Bref, un divertissement correct pour des non-initiés à l'univers de Monte-Cristo mais à éviter pour les lecteurs du livre.

Tout le monde connaît cette histoire de vengeance où le héros n'est pas toujours gentil. Gérard Depardieu est formidable et le reste de la distribution est à l'avenant. J'ai particulièrement aimé Sergio Rubini dans le rôle de son fidèle serviteur. C'est aussi très émouvant de voir le défunt Guillaume Depardieu dans le rôle d'Edmond Dantes jeune.

By A Customer on May 30 2002
The actting and sets were exceptional. The main problem is that the Count of Monte Cristo is too rich a story to fit in a mere 400 minutes. The book deserves a longer treatment, say on the order of magnitude of I, Claudius. The DVD makes the Count a much softer character, compresses the time between his escape and his revenge, downgrades the importance of the wonderful character Haydee ( while promoting the Ali Pasha to a Sultan) and rewites the ending. It's a 5 star production if you haven't read the book. My only complaint about the DVD is that you do not have the option of turning off the subtitles. Read the book; the 1400+ pages fly by.
