Product Description

Déjà immensément célèbre grâce à sa tirade du nez, la pièce de théâtre Cyrano de Bergerac, d’Edmond Rostand, a connu une seconde jeunesse, en 1990, grâce au réalisateur Jean-Paul Rappeneau. Son film, récipiendaire de 10 césars, offrait également à Gérard Depardieu son rôle le plus grandiose, interprétation d’ailleurs récompensée au Festival de Cannes.

Le poète-guerrier Cyrano, capitaine des cadets de Gascogne, est secrètement amoureux de sa cousine Roxane. Mais se sentant trop enlaidi par son nez proéminent, il cédera sa place au jeune et beau Christian. Ce dernier s’avérera pourtant incapable de séduire la belle par ses lettres, et l’aide de Cyrano lui deviendra précieuse.

Sans changer une virgule au texte extraordinairement moderne de Rostand, Rappeneau réalise un film d’époque riche et majestueux où peuvent se déployer de façon flamboyante les valeurs d’indépendance, de panache, d’honneur et de liberté chères à Cyrano. La guerre et l’amour servent de toile de fond au portrait ironique d’un XVIIe siècle où l’élégance est de mise et les joues sont poudrées. Cela fait de Cyrano un plaidoyer épique et pénétrant contre l’hypocrisie et la lâcheté. Soutenu par des comédiens éblouissants (Anne Brochet, Jacques Weber, Vincent Perez) et par une mise en scène ample et vigoureuse, ce film est à la mesure du personnage de Cyrano : héroïque. --Helen Faradji

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique! July 7 2004
Format:DVD
This film was absolutely brilliant; it was beautifully shot, superbly cast, and the acting . . . suffice it to say that if you've only seen Depardieu in garbage like Green Card, you've no idea how gifted this man is. He is amazing, and the final scene is just something that has to be seen; it can't be described. For my money, you can never get too much Vincent Perez (again, stick to his French films), and Jean-Claude Petit's score is breathtaking; it's available on CD, but only as an import.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Version of Cyrano Sept. 10 2010
Format:DVD
This is not merely one of the best foreign films of all time, it is one of the best films of all time, period.

It is the definitive performance of Cyrano.
It is pointless to attempt any more remakes.

The production values in this film are very high.
The attention to detail is remarkable.
The sets, lighting, and costumes are lush.
The camera work is brilliant.
The direction is superb.
The acting is sublime.
The script is the original, and for once the acting does it justice.
Not every actor can deliver lines in verse properly, but here, like everything else it is done with a flow and an ease that is music to the ear, and the visual feast is candy to the eye.
Even the sub-titles, done by Anthony Hopkins(?) are appropriately in verse.

An outstanding film in every way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Known Issues? Sept. 6 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have coveted this movie for the past ten years, maybe more. I used to drop hints to my family near Christmas and my birthday but this year decided I would buy it for myself. The shipping took nearly three weeks time (as expected) and arrived the morning of my birthday! The last time I'd seen the movie was on VHS, so I was excited.
Unfortunately, my DVD player gave the error message, "Cannot Play" and the tv screen displayed "Playback prohibited by area limitations." It worked in my laptop but this is a movie that I want to watch on my big screen. I quickly shot an email to Movie Mars Inc summarizing the events and asking if there was some solution short of returning it? After a week without a reply, I carefully read the return policy and Amazon conditions and sent another email asking the same thing. Isn't there a way around this? I don't want to return it, I want to watch it. Is there a DVD produced without the area limitation? This time I received a form reply with return instructions, no comments of help and the return form states that 'area limitations' are not considered defects. I decided to keep the movie.
Here's my complaint, the movie cost me $30 when all is said and done, and I can't play it from my DVD player. If your business is movies why wouldn't you know the possible 'area limitations' before you ship an item, why wouldn't you have a statement of the kind to warn people that may not know that there is such a thing, and why wouldn't you provide any personal customer care?
It is a fantastic movie but I won't be ordering any more movies from Amazon or Movie Mars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action, poetry and humour - it has it all! July 1 2010
By Sam
Format:DVD
This is my favourite French film. I bought it for my son (7) who is in French immersion, and he didn't think he'd like it, but everytime I put it in, he can't stop watching it. No dubbing here - you have to listen in French, as the poetry won't translate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment in long-awaited release. March 25 2004
Format:DVD
I'd been waiting years for this to be released on DVD, it's a fabulous movie, my absolute favorite adaptation of the original play - however, MGM messed up.
This edition is a matted letterbox, which means that it's actually a 4:3 TV image with the full image reduced to fit on the screen of a traditional TV screen and has black mattes on the top and bottom.
However, it should have been presented in anamorphic widescreen - which gives the same presentation on a 4:3 TV but also fits a widescreen television set.
As it is, it will not display properly on a widescreen tv - the image is either stretched out (so that everyone and everything is flat) or is enlarged beyond the border of the tv screen - thus cutting off the subtitles! My wide television has 6 separate display formats but I cannot format a full image on my screen that is not warped or severely cropped. Extremely disappointing.
I'm hoping for a new true anamorphic widescreen edition to be released eventually, but at least I have the film for now.
