A Russian version 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.Written by

This is a movie I would get at any cost on DVD. Being in Russian, and later translated into Uzbek, languages so elegant and full of quirky clichés, this excels anything I have seen until now. Truly, it made me desire to become just like Edmond Dantes or Count Monte Cristo: learn Latin, engineering, languages, literature and philosophy to shape my personality into Ubermenschen, although I would never become what Dumas created in his novel. Oh and the soundtrack, screenplay, solemn look of the actor Dvorzhetsky all enhance what is called the Art of Cinema of the old Soviet times. The Western Audience should definitely see this movie just for a change from the mainstream Hollywood cinematography.
