Plot

In 1815 Edmond Dantès, second mate of a French trading ship, and his friend Fernand Mondego, a representative of the shipping company, head to the isle of Elba to seek medical attention for their ailing captain. Dantès and Mondego are chased by BritishDragoons who believe they are spies for the exiled Napoleon Bonaparte. Bonaparte himself comes to their aid, stating that they are not his agents. As payment for using his physician, Bonaparte asks Dantès to deliver a letter to a certain Monsieur Clarion in France. The captain dies, however, and they leave Elba. On returning to France, Dantès is reprimanded by the ship's first mate, Danglars, for disobeying orders. However, the company's boss, Morrell, commends Dantès' bravery, promoting him to captain over Danglars, who is left fuming. Mondego intercepts Dantès' fiancée, Mercédès, and tries to seduce her. When he hears of Dantès' promotion, Mondego realizes that Dantès and Mercédès would soon be married.

A bitter Mondego gets drunk and tells Danglars about the letter Napoleon gave Dantès. Danglars informs on Dantès, who is charged with treason and called before a magistrate, Villefort. Villefort believes Dantès to be innocent and is about to release him when he realizes that the addressed is his own father, a Bonapartist. Horrified, he burns the letter and has Dantès sent to the island prison, Château d'If. Dantès escapes en route and seeks Mondego's help, but Mondego betrays and wounds him so he cannot escape. Dantès is imprisoned in the Château d'If, which is controlled by the sadistic Armand Dorleac. Meanwhile, news spreads that Napoleon has escaped from Elba. Mondego, Mercédès, Morrell and Dantès' father go to Villefort to plead Dantès' innocence, but Villefort dismisses them. Unknown to the others, Mondego and Villefort are in league and Villefort informs Mercédès that Dantès has been executed.

In prison Dantès befriends Abbé Faria, an elderly priest and former soldier in Napoleon's army. Faria was imprisoned for refusing to reveal the location of the deceased Count Spada's vast fortune. For thirteen years Faria educates Dantès, teaching him mathematics, literature, philosophy, economics, hand and sword combat and military strategy. They attempt to escape but their tunnel caves in, mortally wounding Faria, who gives Dantès the location of Spada's treasure before dying. When the guards put Faria into a body bag, Dantès changes places with the corpse and is thrown into the sea, taking Dorleac with him, whom he promptly drowns.

Dantès washes onto a desert island and encounters Luigi Vampa, a smuggler and thief, and his band of pirates. Dantès is made to fight Jacopo, a traitor whom they intend to bury alive. Dantès defeats Jacopo but convinces Vampa to spare his life; Jacopo vows to serve Dantès thereafter. Dantès joins the smugglers, leaving with Jacopo when they arrive at Marseille. He visits Morrell, who doesn't recognise him. Dantès learns that while he was in prison, his father committed suicide, Danglars took over Morrell's shipping company after being made a partner, and Mercédès married Mondego. Dantès goes to the island of Monte Cristo, finds Spada's treasure and vows revenge on his betrayers, taking the persona of the mysterious "Count of Monte Cristo". In Rome, he hires Vampa to kidnap Mondego's son Albert and then "rescues" and befriends him, revealing selective information about Spada's treasure that he knows will be told to Albert's father. In return, Albert invites the count to his birthday party at their residence in Paris. Dantès meets with Villefort to discuss a shipment. Mondego and Villefort are now convinced that Monte Cristo has found Spada's lost treasure and plot to steal it.

At the party, Mercédès recognizes Dantès, with whom she is still in love. Jacopo allows her to hide in Monte Cristo's carriage to speak with him, wanting his master to abandon his obsession with revenge and simply live his life. Dantès turns her away and denies being her former lover, but gives himself away when he accidentally uses Edmond's last name. As Danglars' men are stealing Monte Cristo's cargo for Mondego he is confronted by Dantès, with the police in tow. Danglars fights Dantès, who reveals his true identity before having Danglars arrested. Dantès gets Villefort to confess that he made a deal with Mondego to kill his father in return for telling Mercédès that Dantès was dead. Villefort is arrested, and realizes Monte Cristo's true identity before being imprisoned.

Mercédès confronts Dantès, admits that she is still in love with him, and they make love. The next morning, Dantès decides to take Mercédès and her son and leave France. Dantès has Mondego's debts called in, bankrupting him. Mercédès confronts Mondego, telling him that Albert is Dantès' son; she only married him to hide his true paternity. Mondego leaves for his family estate, where the stolen gold shipment was to be taken. He finds that the chests are filled with dirt and sand, and that Dantès has arrived to take his revenge. Dantès disarms Mondego, but Albert rushes to defend him. Mercédès also arrives and reveals that Dantès is Albert's father. Mondego shoots Mercédès, but only wounds her. Mondego has a chance to get away but, having lost everything, has his own desire for revenge. Mondego and Dantès fight; Dantès stabs Mondego through the heart, killing him. Dantès returns to Château d'If to pay homage to Faria and promises him that he will live a better life with those who love him. With his revenge complete, Dantès leaves the island with Mercédès, Albert and Jacopo.
