CYRANO DE BERGERAC (1990) by Jean-Paul Rappeneau, with Gérard Depardieu, Vincent Perez et Anne Brochet
This lavish, historical drama is a faithful adaptation of the play by Edmond Rostand. In Paris, at the time of Richelieu and Molière, Cyrano de Bergerac is a poet and a swashbuckler, in love with his cousin Roxane. We follow him to the Salons, the theater, the battles of the XVIIth century. Cyrano shows us essential human values, such as friendship, love, trust, courage and “panache”. The film and the performance of Gérard Depardieu received 10 Cesar Awards.
