How is it possible for the people from whom Alexandre Dumas and Edmond Dantes hailed, to make such a miserable, sad, crappy rendering of the masterpiece novel of Dumas?

I have seen several variations of this story, in several languages, but this is by far the poorest. Opulent as it is in costumes - one would expect better, though I am not so sure whether the description from the book of the ship Le Pharaon is even close to the real stuff.

The worst, however, is the twisting of the story. Changing vital parts of the story to make an intense story more action-filled can only lead to crap. Even Depardieu's version is better than this - even though that is not very good either.

In hope that someone will make an epic - that doesn't mess around with the true story. I am truly saddened.
