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.

This is an insult to the book. This grotesque work has nothing going for it. Written with the left foot and photographed with the right one, this is arguably one of the worst adaptation of the fabulous work of Alexandre Dumas.
Half the characters have been scraped, Depardieu is laughable at best as the revenge-driven Dantes (I mean, come on, we see a frail young guy go in the worst prison of the time, and 14 years later he reappears with Depardieu's face and after having gained 100 pounds? Give me a break here), and all this farce stinks of self-importance. For the definitive, ultimate film version of Dumas' book, see the TV adaptation of 1979, a gorgeous French/Italian/German co-production, with Jacques Weber, who IS the Count, forever in my opinion. All the dramatic tension, sadness and suspense, not to mention EVERY character from the book, are present in that version, whilst all this is completely absent here.
Avoid at all costs!! I wish I could give this piece of trash zero stars, really.

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.

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.

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.

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

This movie was very well done. The acting was incredible, and the set locations were spectacular.
There was what I feel to be a significant amount of modification to the original story. Some of these things are justified for the sake of keeping the movie from being too long (such as leaving out a few minor characters). However, it only would have taken a few extra minutes to expand on Faria's role in educating Dantes at the beginning of the film, as well as Danglars' punishment at the end (more on this shortly).
What I didn't like were the additions that were made to the script. These were done to make the count a more "friendly," likeable character, when in fact his darkness was part of the appeal of the book. I didn't like how they changed his role in giving the poison to Heloise Villefort to make him less "evil," playing less of a role in Albert de Morcerf's abduction by Luigi Vampa, his lack of a role in the building up of Villefort/Hermine Danglars' son and using him to destroy Villefort's career, taking away his intention to actually see Villefort's daughter poisoned, and cutting the amount of time Danglars' suffered in Vampa's custody to nothing (did I miss anything?). Overall, I feel that off the 4 characters that were the subject of the Count's revenge, they only stayed true to Caderousse's and Fernand de Morcerf's. The fate of Danglars' was going along great until that last scene which I mentioned. I feel that they took out any part the Count played in Villefort's misfortune. This, as I said, was probably to make the Count a friendlier character.
Another thing that perturbed me was the addition of Madame de Richardais' character. As a caveat, I must say that I really liked her character and the actress who played her.
