This remarkably vivid and touching picture shows two desperate prisoners in the dungeons of the forbidding Chateau d’If. The younger of them is the unjustly imprisoned Edmond Dantes, framed by a false friend, and the grey-haired man is the Abbe Faria, the charismatic Italian priest who had long yearned for company and freedom, and whose dying words to Edmond disclose the secret of the treasure hidden on the island of Monte Cristo.
