December 1897, Paris.

Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty, but he already has two children and a lot of anxieties. He hasn’t written anything for two years. In desperation, he offers the great stage actor Constant Coquelin a new play, a heroic comedy, written in verse for the holidays. There is just one problem: the play hasn’t been written yet. Ignoring the whims of the actresses, the demands of his Corsican producers, his wife’s jealousy, his best friend’s relationship problems, and the lack of enthusiasm of all those around him, Edmond begins to write the play that nobody believes in at first. For the time being, he only has the title: ‘Cyrano de Bergerac.’

“Cyrano, My Love,” is a backstage account of the writing and staging of the play. It may not be particularly historically accurate, but is lively, charming and funny, and showcases a wonderful cast and an especially delightful comic performance from Belgian and French cinema actor Olivier Gourmet.

This film is in French with English subtitles – But do not let that stop you from experiencing this beautifully delightful film.
