Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


I watched the new count of Monte Cristo almost the next minute after reading the original. Before I saw the film, I was very looking forward to the specific image of the count of Monte Cristo. (after all, what I read in the book is only vague images.)

At the beginning, there was a great difference between the characterization and the original, and I think this difference is very bad.

First of all, let’s talk about the character Danglars. In the original book, Danglars is the accountant on the ship Pharaoh. He is a typical gloomy and mercenary figure who secretly splashes water. In the count of new Monte Cristo, Danglars has become the chief mate on the ship, and his character has changed from hiding a knife in a smile to a big rogue character. Moreover, I think the most brilliant scene of Danglars in the original work is that near the end, he was locked in his cell by robbers. A chicken charged him 100000 francs, and the more than 5 million francs he carried were taken away alive.

I remember when Peppino said, “you have 5.05 million francs in your pocket, sir, which is equal to 50 chickens worth 100000 francs and half a chicken worth 50000 francs.”

This is the best punishment for a man who regards money as his life. It is humorous and just right.

In the new count of Monte Cristo, Danglars had few chances to appear, and finally died perfunctorily in a duel with the count of Monte Cristo on the ship. Needless to say, you can tell which is better at a glance.

Besides Merseyside, as soon as Merseyside came out, she looked at the port with an excited look on her face. To be honest, at the beginning, I didn’t think that this woman was Merseyside. At the beginning of the original book, Merseyside was described as the pure and beautiful daughter of a fisherman, This Merseyside who appeared did not remind people of her relationship with the fisherman. On the contrary, she was like a middle-class girl. Later, she mentioned it in fernan’s mouth. At that time, Merseyside argued with fernan. Fernan said contemptuously that I raised you from the position of fisherman.

Merseyside doesn’t say much else. Finally, it is pointed out that in the original work, Merseyside had to wait for a year and a half before she had to marry fernan. She married within a month in the film (it feels too unfaithful…)

In fact, fernan has been changed very speechless. In the original book, he is the son of a poor fisherman like Merseyside. He changed in the film and was the son of the count from the beginning.

Think about it carefully. Fernan is really funny. First, since he is the son of the count and is not poor, (Monte Cristo went to his house to seek his help in order to avoid the pursuit of soldiers. The home environment is very good.) Why did he go on board with Dantes as a sailor? The position seems to be lower than Monte Cristo, because at the beginning of the film, the captain of the pharaoh is dying and needs treatment, Danglars is the first mate and Monte Cristo is the second mate

He has money and status. Why should he envy the poor boy Monte Cristo? At that time, they were very particular about status and identity, and the nobles simply disdained to communicate with civilians, which can be seen from many literary novels at that time. In his capacity, it was impossible to make friends with Monte Cristo, who was still stunned at that time, let alone work under him.

Prosecutor Villefort didn’t change much, so he didn’t say much.

The highlight is the legendary count of Monte Cristo.

The count of Monte Cristo in the book feels very mysterious and noble, just like a vampire. (the author Dumas also said this through the mouths of several people.) He is knowledgeable and has great taste. His clothes and living habits have a strong oriental flavor.

In the movie, it’s easy to wait until the count of Monte Cristo finds the treasure and gets rich. I’m looking forward to his first appearance.

Guests gathered on the broad lawn of the mansion and looked up into the sky.

In the fireworks sky, a huge hot-air balloon fell slowly. Before falling, four jugglers slid down four ropes stretched out from the hanging blue of the hot-air balloon.

So the rich count of Monte Cristo officially appeared.

I really want to curse. I wonder if the director has seen the original work? In the film, the ostentation of Monte Cristo is big and scary, and the living place is too big. The director wants to fully reflect how rich the count of Monte Cristo is through the word “big”.

However, this just broke the most important point of the count of Monte Cristo – mystery. Those who have only read the original work know that although the count of Monte Cristo has money, he does not want to be big, but pays more attention to refinement. This can be seen from the description of his clothes and residence. Monte Cristo in this film is more like an upstart. There’s no place to spend a lot of money.

Moreover, the count of Monte Cristo was very strict in dealing with the relationship between master and servant. The servants respected and worshipped him rather than feared him. This can be seen from Ali without tongue in the original work to Bertuccio, the housekeeper. In this film, it seems that there is no distinction between primary and secondary. When Jacob is alone with the count of Monte Cristo, he is sitting or standing.

In addition, the count of Monte Cristo did not personally kill anyone in the original book, but ruthlessly killed several enemies in the film. This is also contrary to the kindness of the count of Monte Cristo in the original book. After reading a book, he has always been a kind man from the sailor Dantes to the count of Monte Cristo, but his kindness was revealed when he was a sailor. After being locked up for several years, he thought of who betrayed him through the advice of priest Faria, We can really use Dostoevsky’s “idiot” (Dostoevsky’s “idiot” refers to such a kind of person with simple and kind heart who is almost an idiot) to locate Dantes. After fourteen years of persecution, Dantes was still kind; But this kindness was hidden in the depths of his heart. Later, he once doubted and condemned his own practice because he indirectly killed the child of his enemy Villefort’s wife. (and it’s not his fault that he didn’t do anything. He just gave Villefort’s wife a little casual hint. It was his wife who finally caused the tragedy.)

Faria, the first mentor of the count of Monte Cristo in prison, was miserable enough in the film. Just teach the count of Monte Cristo knowledge. I have to teach him fencing at an old age. I have to sweat for the old man when Monte Cristo stabbed a sword without hesitation when watching them practice swords.

Another important figure, director Caderousse, deleted him directly. It is estimated that he is afraid that the time to join his film will become longer. Moreover, this man Monte Cristo is not easy to kill. He didn’t make any big mistakes, but his character is a little dark. ha-ha.

Maybe just two hours is not enough to fully express the essence of the book, but what should be said is that the bad is bad. To tell the truth, this “Monte Cristo’s love and hatred” originally belongs to a popular novel, which is attractive by the plot. The director can’t make a film for the sake of making a film, and make boring modifications without thinking about the ending in two hours.

If you are interested in this film, I suggest you look at the original book. (it’s best to read the full translation.) You will get more fun from the book than this film.

At least I like the character of the count of Monte Cristo very much. The charm of the count of Monte Cristo in the film is far from the original.
