Cyrano De Bergerac

Review score: * * * * *

cast: Gérard Depardieu, Anne Brochet, Jacques Weber, Vincent Pérez

year: 1990

colour: no

certificate: U

director: Jean-Paul Rappeneau

runtime: 135

Depardieu excels as the seventeenth-century Gascon swordsman and braggart whose unsightly nose prevents him from confessing his love to his cousin Roxane. Rappeneau's film is a genuine cinematic triumph, as visually as it is verbally dazzling: the grace and pace of Rostand's text is matched by the energetic camera-work, elegant mise-en-scène and faultlessly choreographed battle scenes.

Winner of 10 César Awards & Best Actor Award at Cannes Film Festival 1990
