the work of our compatriot Massimo Cantini Parrini: also in the wake of this recognition (mentioned in the video itself) now comes a new trailer for Joe Wright’s film, arriving on March 3

The English director adapts Erica Schmidt ‘s theatrical musical , taken in turn from the famous comedy by Edmond Rostand : this means, in other words, that Rostand ‘s long monologues become songs here. Peter Dinklage plays the eponymous protagonist, formidable poet and swordsman, in love with the beautiful Rossana ( Haley Bennett ), to whom he does not declare himself because he is inhibited by his physical appearance. When Rossana loses her head for cadet Christian ( Kelvin Harrison ), it will be Cyrano ‘s turnthe task of helping him: he will write some extraordinary love letters for him, and will be his prompter in the girl’s courtship.

The film is embellished by the soundtrack of The National , by the costumes by Massimo Cantini Parrini (nominated for an Oscar also for Pinocchio ) and by the evocative setting of the story, shot in Noto.

The official synopsis

In Cyrano , award-winning director Joe Wright ( Anna Karenina, Pan – Journey to Neverland, Darkest Hour) draws the audience into a symphony of emotions through music, romance and beauty, reinterpreting the timeless story of one of the most famous and overwhelming love triangles ever in a cinematic key. A man at the forefront of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (Peter Dinklage), enchants the audience with both brilliant puns in verbal challenges and his skill with the sword in duels. Cyrano did not have the courage to declare her feelings to the beautiful Roxanne (Haley Bennet), convinced that her physical appearance does not make him worthy of the love of her closest friend. However, she fell in love with Christian (Kelvin Harrison) at first sight…
