Cyrano

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.

Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Loved it!

    Films like ‘Cyrano’ are not usually my cup of tea, what with the spontaneous singing, dancing et al. but Joe Wright & Co. do it in a way that is simply a pleasure to watch. The whole thing looks splendid, from the sets to the costumes. The musical numbers, meanwhile, are consistently great throughout.

    The cast are excellent. Peter Dinklage is my guy, like everyone I found his performances as Tyrion in Game of Thrones (my favourite character, easily, from that show) to be sensational and have since wanted to support and see his future work – and he didn’t let me down here! Haley Bennett and Kelvin Harrison Jr. are very good also, with them both putting in emotive displays. Ben Mendelsohn, although in a smaller role, is memorable too.

    This was the first time that I was all alone in the cinema to watch a film, which – as pleasurable as that is for me personally – is hopefully not a bad sign for this 2021 release as it deserves a positive box office taking. With that said, I have since read that the film’s official UK release date is tomorrow… so perhaps (hopefully) that is why.

    I will say the ending isn’t as strong as the rest, though that’s me nit-picking as I still thoroughly enjoyed the conclusion – and the rest of the production, for that matter.
