Film Synopsis:

Cyrano is a musical romatic drama by top British film director Joe Wright (of Pride & Prejudice, Atonement). As a musical several song numbers were good and others okay. The songs could divide opinions amongst audiences as it did amongst us. The film is visually stunning with sublime action sequences, great sets, incredible cinematography and fantastic costumes worthy of Oscar nomimation. There are very good performances by the cast with Peter Drinklage adding another dimension to his incredible talents. The film is worth watching for his performance alone.
The comparisons to Moulin Rouge and Les Miserables movies will be inevitable but we feel this film should be viewed on its own merits.
Honourable mention to The Godfather 50th Anniversary (Paramount) being shown at cinemas. A timeless classic that hasn’t lost its appeal and regarded by many observers as one of the finest movies of all time. Do you agree?
Cyrano is released in UK cinemas now.
