I love this remake. I loved the original.The only things I have issue with on the remake are the exteriors portraying French Guiana. I know this remake was shot in Europe. You'd think with modern technology they could've made it look like Guiana as opposed to Europe. The portrayal of the Salvation islands, especially Devils Island, is so historically incorrect. I still love the storyline. Charlie and Remi were perfect in their roles.In the original, you could feel their plight from jungle diseases and atmosphere. This one just looked like a dreary day in Serbia.

Still a great storylineReviewed byquark-80208Vote: 7/10
Flat characters and unimaginative, choppy direction attempt to tell the story of the friendship of two convicts.
There's a lot of emphasis on a few brutal scenes yet there's scant coverage of the relationships of the characters. But for the most part it's just a visual jumble. The narrative jumps about and spends too long on lingering scenes and nowhere near enough time on characters and the linear story-line.
The effects of years of brutality have almost no physical effect on the prisoners who look like they just hopped out of make-up after a good lunch!
The 1973 version is timeless and a work of cinematic genius. This version will be forgotten in a few weeks.
Do yourself a favor and read the book written by the protagonist. This movie has nothing to do with the original Papillon's story. What a shame! It feels like the director, editor, writers have not even read Charettiere memoirs. Who sold out? I hope the money was worth it.
