Cyrano My Love
Dir: Alexis Michalik
Alexis Michalik’s period-set biopic reveals the drama behind the playwright’s most famous work Cyrano de Bergerac. We meet Edmond Rostand (Thomas Solivérès) during the explosion of artistic production that marked
the Belle Époque in late 19th-century France. Despite being a clearly gifted writer, his career has yet to take off, and his bruised ego makes it difficult for him to find further inspiration. But, with the support of the legendary Sarah
Bernhardt (Clémentine Célarié), stage legend Constant Coquelin (Olivier Gourmet) approaches Edmond and demands to star in his next play. With only three weeks to write it and only the title – Cyrano de Bergerac – to work with, can he accomplish the impossible?
