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

Did You Know?
The first act of the original play takes place entirely within the theater, rather than venturing outside, and ends when Cyrano steps out to fight the hundred men sent to kill Ligniere. During his conversation with Le Bret, a food seller offers him some of the concessions. Having just given away his money, by using it to pay back all the theatergoers, he at first refuses, but then accepts nothing more than a glass of water, half a biscuit, and a grape. That detail is not included in this film, since the actions moves outside while Cyrano duels Valvert. However, it does appear to make reference to it. While waiting for Valvert to confront him, Cyrano helps himself to grapes. See more
