What the blurb forgot to say was that this is in French with English subtitles!! Slow going, didn't bother watching much of it at all.
poignant, strongly charismatic Gerald Depardieu (Cyrano) enforces viewers to just keep their eyes on him at all times.........he is the most compelling French actor of his time, and beautifully typifies the French poet he is aspiring to bring to life on the screen.
If you love ....life/love/danger/costumes/tradedgy and all with a French accent...this ones for you!!
A good film and story to see as long as you don't mind reading subtitles or you speak fluent French.
If I'd known this prior to getting this film I would have given it a miss as when I want entertinment I don't want to have to concentrate on reading in order to follow a story.
Gerard Depardieu and wonderful prose and some exciting action- what more could you want?
Good French classic, but not our style
Great story. Great Directing. Great acting. Had us totally involved the whole way through even though it was subtitled.
Transported us back to a time when honour was more important than personal gain.
Edmond Rostand would have been very happy with this production of his work.
Story! Acting! Scenery! Costumes! Music! Cinematography! ... it doesn't get much better than this! I loved it so much ... I went out and bought it!
Sooo much better than Hollywood's Roxanne! Beautiful to watch.
French classic with great casting. Not to be missed.
This was an enjoyable video.
The problem I found with this movie is that Cyrano is a loud-mouth. His role is way overdone as far as talking goes. If it wasn't for his mouth I would have enjoyed the movie.
A sensitive adaptation & fabulously crafted, of a well-known classic - that is if anyone reads books these days!!
Superb! Love the plot, acting, dialogue, translation and storyline. This film is definitely in my top 10!
