Disappointed
25 May 2003 | by lisliasmSee all my reviews

After reading a play, almost any rendition does not satisfy the reader. This is because the actors in one's head do a nearly perfect job. However, most renditions at least make an attempt at being realistic. The 1972 Cyrano de Bergerac makes no such attempt. Instead it is fraught with overacting, leaving the viewer with an overall impression that the rendition is simply histrionic and nothing else. Granted, the actors make a very actor-y impression on the eye and the mind, but do they really help a viewer to feel emotion? Isn't that what acting is all about? Perhaps good for those who don't mind this sort of thing, but I didn't like it.
