Flamboyance and poetry, love and sword fighting...
Step into the romantic world of Cyrano de Bergerac. Our swashbuckling hero, Cyrano, complete with his famously-prominent nose, fights against the odds and reveals himself to be just as effective with the sword as he is with his words. He falls madly in love with his cousin, Roxane, only to find out that she loves another. Christian, a headstrong young soldier, as handsome as Cyrano is ugly, as dim-witted as Cyrano is sharp, has also fallen in love with Roxane.
The two rivals join forces, with Cyrano helping Christian - untutored in the language of love - to succeed in his attempt to seduce the beautiful Roxane. She is attracted to the handsome Christian who, using the power of Cyrano's words and letters, entices her completely. Travelling from Paris to the north of France, they embark upon many an adventure from the elegant townhouses of Paris to the battlefields of Arras.
But one day, both Cyrano and Christian will have to make a terrible choice...
