Synopsis

Cyrano has been in love with his cousin, Roxane, since childhood but has never dared to tell her. He thinks that his very long nose makes him look like an ugly freak whom no woman could ever possibly love. Admittedly, Roxane dreams of loving a man who is both witty and handsome. She thinks she has found her ideal the day she meets Christian. Alas, Christian believes himself an utter fool: he is incapable of speaking to women. Cyrano offers his help. He will prompt Christian with his lines and write love-letters for him, and thus the pairs of them - the one under cover the other- will win Roxane over. For Christian, the situation becomes unbearable...
