CYRANO DE BERGERAC
1975

poster

T.V. Theater Play

Director:

Ko van Dijk

Language:
Dutch

Running Time: 118'.

Main Cast :
Rutger Hauer - De Valvert
Ko van Dijk - Cyrano de Bergerac

Play:
Edmond Rostand

Plot:
It tells the love of a clever swordsman, Cyrano, for his cousin Roxane, who is instead in love with the young cadet Christian, handsome but totally empty-headed. Cyrano's main characteristics are his huge nose (which almost makes a caricature of him) and his ability in composing poems and songs. In a touching scene, Cyrano, hidden in the shadow - without Roxane knowing about his presence there - makes a very vibrant love declaration to her and then he allows Christian to take his place when the girl leans out of her balcony to kiss him, moved by Cyrano's words.
It's one of the oldest myths - there's no justice in this world, there can't be any happy love. And the trick is to be able to keep our balance on this thin border between dream and reality, between moon and earth.

Notes:
The author of this masterpiece, also considered one of the most peculiar comedies of those times, is Edmond Rostand (Marseille, 1868 - Paris, 1918), who also wrote “L'Aiglon” and “Chantecler”.

Rostand wrote “Cyrano de Bergerac” in 1897.
