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.

An amazingly faithful reproduction of a truly remarkable piece of literature. Gérard Depardieu is superb as Le Compte de Monte Cristo with a memorable performance by Sergio Rubini as the faithful Bertuccio. A wonderful story of betrayal, intrigue and revenge. A must see series!
