CYRANO (12) 124 minutes
A ravishing musical adaptation of 'Cyrano de Bergerac, the 19th century novel by Edmond Rostand. Cyrano, played by Peter Dinklage (of Game of Thrones fame), is an outstanding swordsman and poet but feels he is unlovable because of his appearance ( in the book Cyrano had a very big nose). He struggles to tell the woman he loves of his feelings. She meanwhile has apparently fallen in love with a good-looking soldier. It is a very beautiful film about inner and outer beauty.
'It’s a flutter of organza cloaks, brass buttons and delicate 17th-century dresses in pastel shades. They glide and pirouette across the weathered stonework of Noto, in Sicily, itself a treasure trove of baroque architecture.' (The Independent)
