cyrano de bergerac
Join us at Babylangues HQ this month to watch ‘Cyrano de Bergerac’, a classic French tale. The film is based on a play of the same name by Edmond Rostand and is in verse form. ‘Cyrano de Bergerac’ has all the lements you could want in a film: romance, adventure, tragedy and some rather sharp wit.
The lead character, Cyrano, is played by Gerard Depardieu. He is a swordsman and a poet who weaves beautfiul verse but has a not-so-beautiful face. He is in love with his cousin Roxane, but chooses not to declare his love for her because he feels himself unworthy. When a new suitor for Roxane comes along, Cyrano aids him and thus indirectly confesses his feelings. However there’s a war on the horizon and it brings death and destruction to our characters…
The film was critically acclaimed during its release in 1990. It actually won the record number of César awards including those for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, and Best Director.
Be sure to come and watch this brillant film!
