Storyline

A dashing officer of the guard and romantic poet, Cyrano de Bergerac is in love with his cousin Roxane without her knowing. His one curse in his life, he feels, is his large nose and although it may have been a forming influence in his rapier-sharp wit, he believes that Roxane will reject him. He resorts to writing letters to her on behalf of one of his cadets, Christian, who is also in love with Roxane but just doesn't know how to tell her. She falls for the poetic charm of the letters but believes that they were written by Christian. Written by Graeme Roy <gsr@cbmamiga.demon.co.uk>

Trivia

Cyrano's final insult to his own nose is translated as "Oh, that this too, too solid nose would melt." This is a parody of Hamlet's "Oh, that this too, too solid flesh would melt. Gérard Depardieu later appeared in Hamlet (1996), opposite Kenneth Branagh and Derek Jacobi, both of whom have played Cyrano. See more »

Translated? You don't say.
23 February 2004 | by (Last shanty on the right.) – See all my reviews

The subtitles in this movie are done so well, one almost forgets the movie was done in French. The words seem to glide effortlessly off of Gerard Depardieu's tongue, as if only he were meant to speak them. It almost makes you jealous of Cirano's eloquence. Even those with no appreciation of poetry whatsoever can still find this movie entertaining. The action is enthralling; the cinematography, endearing; the movie, entertaining. A must see film if you enjoy poetry, romance, humor, action, suspense, period pieces, aesthetically pleasing images, theatre, French, English, other languages, large noses, good movies, or any combination of the above. In short, rent it, buy it or steal it. Just make sure you watch it. And don't blame me if you get caught stealing it.
