December 1897, Paris. Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty but already two children and a lot of anxieties. He has not written anything for two years. In desperation, he offers the great Constant Coquelin a new play, a heroic comedy, in verse, for the holidays. Only concern: it is not written yet. Ignoring the whims of actresses, the demands of his Corsican producers, the jealousy of his wife, the stories of his best friend's heart and the lack of enthusiasm of all those around him, Edmond starts writing this piece which nobody believes. For now, he has only the title: "Cyrano de Bergerac".Written by
Written in 1897, Cyrano de Bergerac remains one of the most popular plays in French literature. This is how it inspired many adaptations, in the form of opera, ballet, comic book and of course film, the best known being that of Jean-Paul Rappeneau with Gérard Depardieu in the role- title. The peculiarity of Edmond is to immerse ourselves behind the scenes of the creation of this classic.-The film is the adaptation of the play of the same name laureate of five Molière in 2017. The opportunity for its director, Alexis Michalik, to go behind the camera. A fair return for those who have long carried this project to make a film and turned at the time to the theater, failing to find a director interested in his work. See more »

One of the best films we've seen in many years. Excellent casting, well paced, captivating plot, well-structured flow, excellent lighting and processing... the craft and effects are top notch. An overall excellent film in all aspects!
