Famed swordsman and poet Cyrano De Bergerac is in love with his cousin Roxane. It is entirely appropriate that Cyrano – whose very name evokes the notion of grand romantic gestures – should have lived his life bereft of romance. What is romanticism, after all, but a bold cry about how life should be, not about how it is? And so here he is – hulking, pudding-faced, with a nose so large he is convinced everyone is laughing at him – yet he dares to love the fair Roxane. I have made it one of my rules in life never to have anything to do with anyone who does not instinctively love Cyrano, and I am most at home with those who identify with him.

Purbeck Film Festival: Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival aims to provide a rich variety of cinematic experiences across a rural area which does not have easy access to foreign language, independent and classic films.
