About Cyrano (12A)

A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with brilliant swordplay in a duel. But, convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne, Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian.


Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac (1619-1655) was a real-life French writer. In 1897, Edmond Rostand wrote a highly-fictionalized version of Cyrano's life. Rostand's version of events has inspired many further retellings. This film is based on the stage play written by Erica Schmidt which premiered in 2019 with Peter Dinklage in the leading role. Schmidt and Dinklage are a married couple in real life.
