Storyline

Cyrano de Begerac is joyous, witty, a poet, a leader and filled with plenty of charisma and bravado in 17th Century France. He has only one flaw: an unusually long nose which makes him unattractive to any woman. Thus, he cannot have the woman he loves, his cousin Roxanne. Roxanne loves an officer in his army who gets tongue-tied in front of women. Who will Roxanne love? Will Cyrano ever find love? Or will he find happiness in helping the officer woo Roxanne? This is a story of split personalities, human frailty and unrequited love. Written by erasmus

Trivia

This film is an interesting cross between two-color technicolor and hand-coloring, sometimes using only one process or the other, sometimes both. Parts of the film were hand colored using the Pathécolor stencil process, in which groundstone glass is cut with a pantograph in the shape of an object to conform with what is on the 35mm print. A machine then passes a dye-soaked strip of velvet over the film with the glass stencil on top and the film is colored. Cutting the stencils (a stencil for every different color) was a very long and tedious process which delayed the release of the film by almost two years. The color style/scheme of the movie was to imitate the tone, color and feel of 17th Century Renaissance paintings. See more »

The great play comes to the movies
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Though not as good the 1950 version due to an imperfect by the guy playing Cyrano, this movie needs to be seen to study its basque tones and exquisite look which captures 17th Century France perfectly. The love story is good and the look on Roxanne and Cyrano's face in the final scene is priceless. The make-up artist deserves a special acknowledgement for that alone. As, I said, watch to see an example of how the cinematogaphy, art design, costume design and make-up of a movie can help to elevate it.
