Details

Cyrano (Gerard Depardieu), a swashbuckling hero with a gift for verse - and a prominent proboscis - is madly in love with the most beautiful woman in Paris. Deterred though by his feelings of physical inadequacy, he instead uses his poetic skills to support another hapless suitor. But will the object of their affection realise who she’s really falling for?

Humorous and touching in equal measure, Cyrano de Bergerac is a spectacular and vibrant adaptation of Edmond Rostand's classic novel, and features subtitles by author Anthony Burgess. Depardieu has never been better than as the swaggering scribe, his performance enriched by the vigorous direction of Jean-Paul Rappeneau and lavish period design.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, this acclaimed world cinema classic is now available on Blu-ray in the UK for the very first time.
