1 thought on “TBT: Cyrano de Bergerac (1990) Remains a Classic

  1. I was training in Leeds and went to an old, slightly run down independent cinema to watch this when it came out. I sat in a nearly empty cinema, surrounded by faded gilt and tattered red velvet and wept (not cried……wept) at the end, where Roxanne realises the letter is from him and not Christian…..and that she has loved Cyrano all along. I had a major crush on Depardieu in the 90’s, Channel 4 in the U.K. had a Depardieu season and I watched each one avidly. Now………..well he’s a knobhead and not to be entertained, but this version is beautiful and heartbreaking

Feel the love
