Some odd changes from the book dramatically deviate from the book's more powerful ending, turning a strong message of forgiving and forgetting into a convenient and soapy 'c'est la vie. Paris S Super Reviewer. Aug 23, Dumas' classic adventure tale of revenge gets reheated yet again and still it's good. It literally never gets old. What's best about this version is the feeling of easy camaraderie developed by the two leads Jim Caviezel and Guy Pearce early on that lays the groundwork for the later betrayal, it gives the accompanying proceedings more weight.
While perhaps not as rousing as one expects still a decent addition to the large family of Monte Cristo adaptations. Kevin M. Variety Intelligence Platform. Variety Mobile Logo.

Fernand opened his mouth to reply, but his voice died on his lips, and he could not utter a word. You are in a hurry, captain! Danglars; for when we have suffered a long time, we have great difficulty in believing in good fortune. But it is not selfishness alone that makes me thus in haste; I must go to Paris.
Besides, I shall only take the time to go and return. Ah, this letter gives me an idea—a capital idea! Is it my affair?
This story features examples of:
I could drink four more such bottles; they are no bigger than cologne flasks. I forget. This drunken Caderousse has made me lose the thread of my sentence. Prove it, Danglars. I have answered for you. Fernand rose impatiently. Have you that means? But why should I meddle in the matter?
None, on my word! I hate him! I confess it openly. I have always had more dread of a pen, a bottle of ink, and a sheet of paper, than of a sword or pistol.
The Catalan watched him until Caderousse, almost overcome by this fresh assault on his senses, rested, or rather dropped, his glass upon the table. Give me your arm, and let us go. Come along, Danglars, and let the young gentleman return to the Catalans if he chooses. When they had advanced about twenty yards, Danglars looked back and saw Fernand stoop, pick up the crumpled paper, and putting it into his pocket then rush out of the arbor towards Pillon.

He said he was going to the Catalans, and he is going to the city. Hallo, Fernand! You are coming, my boy! The apartment destined for the purpose was spacious and lighted by a number of windows, over each of which was written in golden letters for some inexplicable reason the name of one of the principal cities of France; beneath these windows a wooden balcony extended the entire length of the house.
Various rumors were afloat to the effect that the owners of the Pharaon had promised to attend the nuptial feast; but all seemed unanimous in doubting that an act of such rare and exceeding condescension could possibly be intended. Danglars, however, who now made his appearance, accompanied by Caderousse, effectually confirmed the report, stating that he had recently conversed with M.
In fact, a moment later M.
With the entrance of M. Morrel, Danglars and Caderousse were despatched in search of the bridegroom to convey to him the intelligence of the arrival of the important personage whose coming had created such a lively sensation, and to beseech him to make haste. The old man was attired in a suit of glistening watered silk, trimmed with steel buttons, beautifully cut and polished. His thin but wiry legs were arrayed in a pair of richly embroidered clocked stockings, evidently of English manufacture, while from his three-cornered hat depended a long streaming knot of white and blue ribbons.

Thus he came along, supporting himself on a curiously carved stick, his aged countenance lit up with happiness, looking for all the world like one of the aged dandies of , parading the newly opened gardens of the Luxembourg and Tuileries. As Danglars approached the disappointed lover, he cast on him a look of deep meaning, while Fernand, as he slowly paced behind the happy pair, who seemed, in their own unmixed content, to have entirely forgotten that such a being as himself existed, was pale and abstracted; occasionally, however, a deep flush would overspread his countenance, and a nervous contraction distort his features, while, with an agitated and restless gaze, he would glance in the direction of Marseilles, like one who either anticipated or foresaw some great and important event.
She moved with the light, free step of an Arlesienne or an Andalusian. Edmond, at the approach of his patron, respectfully placed the arm of his affianced bride within that of M. Morrel, who, forthwith conducting her up the flight of wooden steps leading to the chamber in which the feast was prepared, was gayly followed by the guests, beneath whose heavy tread the slight structure creaked and groaned for the space of several minutes.
Morrel was seated at his right hand, Danglars at his left; while, at a sign from Edmond, the rest of the company ranged themselves as they found it most agreeable.
