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?
Cyrano states that he has "practically lived" Don Quixote. Gérard Depardieu
was later considered for the role of Quixote in Terry Gilliam
's troubled production, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. As that role had previously been played by José Ferrer
, it would have marked the second role that the two actors shared. See more
