1897. Edmond Rostand is a struggling playwright whose inspiration has dried-up. Thanks to his admirer Sarah Bernhardt, he is approached by the greatest actor of the day, Constant Coquelin, who absolutely insists on playing in his next play and wants to premiere it three weeks after. To much disdain of his entourage, he must resume to work and write an heroic comedy in verse. But all he has so far is a title: Cyrano de Bergerac.
Followed by a Q&A with director Alexis Michalik
