The power of true poetry..., 5 November 1998

This version is true to the French original. Notice how the language rhymes throughout (even the English subtitles, which is no mean feat - this ensures the English preserves the beauty of the French). Gerard is sublime in his native tongue. A man of the sword, poetry, philosophy, romance - Cyrano is truly a man to be admired. Tragedy through integrity is a superb essential paradox. This is a heartbreaker - and should touch you deeply. (Once you whet your appetite, move on to Jean de Florette and Tout le Matin du Monde).
