ⓘ Monte Cristo (1929 film)

Monte Cristo is a French silent film directed by Henri Fescourt, and is a film adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo, a novel by Alexandre Dumas, pere.

Long forgotten, the film underwent a restoration effort from 1999 to 2006 under the direction of Lenny Borger, with funding by the Arte channel. A nearly complete reconstruction was assembled from four prints in Eastern European archives. The restored film received its North American premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival on May 3, 2015.

Fescourt used four cameramen to best capture movement, and often filmed in real locations mentioned in the novel, including the prison of Chateau dIf. The film has been critically praised as "an epic triumph of the silent cinema at its height," distinguished by its combination of commercial cinema dramatics and techniques used by French impressionist filmmakers. The BFIs Silent Film Guide writes that "the elegance and orchestration of the film-making is extraordinary" and praises the lavish scenes at the Paris Opera and Monte Cristos mansion as "staggeringly opulent."
