All about French cinema
One of France’s literary treasures commands the screen with this “exceptionally graceful adaptation” (Los Angeles Times) that received a Best Foreign Film Golden Globe and five Oscar nominations, including Best Actor for Gerard Depardieu.
Cyrano (Depardieu), a master swordsman and poet, feels he cannot woo his beloved Roxane (Anne Brochet) due to an unfortunate physical flaw: his grotesquely large nose. Resigning himself to helping another suitor, the dashing yet tongue-tied Christian (Vincent Perez), Cyrano uses his mastery of words to win Roxane forhim. But when Roxane finds that she has fallen for Christian’s mindand not for his beautywhich of her two suitors will finally possess her heart?
With: Gérard Depardieu, Anne Brochet, Vincent Perez.
