CYRANO DE BERGERAC
A film by JEAN-PAUL RAPPENEAU
A cinematic triumph The Observer
The greatest love story ever told Empire
A magnificent film The Hollywood Reporter
A dazzling masterpiece, Jean-Paul Rappeneaus Cyrano de Bergerac was showered with awards and five Oscar nominations on its release and became one of the most successful French films ever made.
Cyranos legendary skill with a blade is matched only by his skill with words and yet he is tormented by an oversized nose which prevents him from declaring his love for the beautiful Roxane. When another suitor, the dashing but shallow Christian enlists his aid and poetic flair to woo her, Cyrano seizes the chance to finally express his feelings, even if it has to be through another.
With an Oscar nominated performance by Gérard Depardieu in his greatest ever role, Cyrano de Bergerac is a magnificent swashbuckling epic that will melt the heart.
