| Best Monte Cristo ever
This is by far far the very best adaptation of The count of Monte Cristo, very true to the book, with superb Edmond Dantes - Jacques Weber, a jewel, unlike the 1998 minis with Gerard Obelix Depardieu(worst adaptatio never). Have seen this mini series in 1985 and trying to get a copy,with zero results (there is a German DVD, with German language only..maybe at the end I'll end up with it). Can't believe such masterpiece lays in dust with no possibility to see it again. Dantes is slim, dark hair as described in the novel, when you see it, all the characters appears the way you imagined them when reading the book..A must see (if you have the chance to..)
