“I have a dream. It’s not a big dream, it’s just a little dream. My dream – and I hope you don’t find this too crazy – is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can’t have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, “Whatever you do, don’t call the fire department!” That would be bad.” C. D. Bales said.
Steve Martin hands out another fantastic movie about a man who wants to be lucky in love and in life.
Here is the basic plot…
In this modern take on Edmond Rostand’s classic play “Cyrano de Bergerac,” C. D. Bales (Steve Martin) is the witty, intelligent and brave fire chief of a small Pacific Northwest town who, due to the size of his enormous nose, declines to pursue the girl of his dreams, lovely Roxanne Kowalski (Daryl Hannah). Instead, when his shy underling Chris McConnell (Rick Rossovich) becomes smitten with Roxanne, Bales feeds the handsome young man the words of love to win her heart.
The film is directed by Fred Schepisi and it’s based upon Cyrano de Bergerac. The soundtrack is composed by Bruce Smeaton. Its a great soundtrack for the fantasy that it is.
You can get the soundtrack on Amazon.
