Response to Cyrano de Bergerac the movies Cyrano de Bergerac and Roxanne




The author of Cyrano de Bergerac is Edmond Rostand. Edmond Rostand was born on April 1,
1868 in Marseille, France. He was obsessed with literature in general, but was especially
interested in theater. His first drama was called The Romantics, then Cyrano de Bergerac,
Chantecler, and The Last Night of Don Juan. Cyrano de Bergerac was his greatest work and
accomplishment, the first production was on December 28, 1897. Edmond died on December 2,
1918. He was a French poet and dramatist who wrote for 30 years.


I liked Cyrano e Bergerac, but it was a sad story. I liked watching the movie Roxanne.
It was in English and in color, I also understood the plot since I read the book. I
didn't like watching the French version with subtitles because I don't take French, so I
didn't understand it. It was hard to watch what was going on, listen to the tone of the
voices, and read the subtitles at the same time. Sometimes I got lost or didn't know how
the lines were expressed. For instance, whether the person was sad, happy, or mad.


I also like to be able to just watch a movie, when they are in English you don't have to
hang on each word or read what they just said. It's not the same with subtitles at all.

Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits." Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly
  • Dominican music and film
    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

  • Americanization
    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
