Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gerard Depardieu gives a tour de force Oscar-nominated performance in this sumptuous (and best) screen version of the famous play"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The great thing about Jean-Paul Rappeneau's 1990 film -- apart from Gerard Depardieu's central performance -- is that it returns the play to its popular entertainment self."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"From the opening scene in which he takes on a theater full of pretentious actors to the grand tearjerking finale, Cyrano is always the center of attention, and Depardieu, full of wit, bravado and passion, rises to the challenge."
‑ James Sanford, James Sanford on Film
"involving and depressing"
‑ David Bezanson, Filmcritic.com
"More artistry and energy than virtually any American costume drama from that period you could name."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"[T]here's a kind of soaring beauty to this expansively passionate film..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Gives romantic love a good name, thanks to the flamboyant performance of Gerard Depardieu in this classic."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The entire cast is marvelous here, but Depardieu is riveting when he's on the screen - which is most of the time."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A film for hopeless romantics, which could only be justly done by the French."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"There are better love stories, but Cyrano is arguably the ultimate celebration of the romantic spirit… Depardieu makes the part forever his own."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"A modern movie the way they used to make `em"
‑ David Poland, Hot Button
