Cyrano de Bergerac

Cyrano de Bergerac, starring Gérard Depardieu as Cyrano, is a spectacular and vibrant adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic play. Amid the lavish period design, Depardieu has never been better than as this swaggering scribe, delivering verve and pathos under Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s vigorous direction, with English subtitles by author Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange). In celebration of Cyrano’s 30th anniversary since its first screening at the Cannes Festival in May 1990, listen to director Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s unique Q&A at Ciné Lumière in 2018 (culturethèque).
This classic of world cinema has also been remastered and released for the first time in the UK on Blu-ray, and simultaneously on iTunes and Amazon.
