The Count of Monte Cristo is my favorite movie. I have seen it so many times that I think I know everybody's lines. I thought everyone was brilliant. I even loved the mean characters, they were just perfect for their role ( and yeah, I am talking of the latest version).
I wanted to read the book, but my brother in law told me that the book was different and didn't have a happy ending, so I have been avoiding that book for a long time. I am worried that if I read the book I won't like the movie as much
I have several favorite scenes in this movie, but the funniest part to me is when Edmond and his Italian friend, I think his name is Giacomo, find the Monte Cristo treasure and they are all celebrating and all of the sudden Edmond gets really depressed, Giacomo asks what's wrong and Edmond says that he is going to use all the treasure to plan his vengeance. Giacomo then tries to discourage him from that plan and says something along the line of " We go back, you get your lady back, we look for your enemies, bang, bang, bang, how is that a bad plan?"
The sword fight at the end with Fernand is also wicked, I get so in to it. I love it when Edmond reveals his identity and throws the chess piece to Fernand and says "kings to you Fernand".
Ok, I can just go on on every single scene. I am obsessed with this movie
I need to stop.
