A stirring adaptation of Rostand's classic, romantic tragi-comedy. Full of grandly mounted, bustling crowd scenes, it revolves around a typically superb performance from Depardieu as the large-nosed hero. Although performed in rhyming verse throughout (with subtitles by Anthony Burgess), and a touch overlong, the film's dramatic and cinematic qualities are outstanding.
