Inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac, the comic story of a man with the heart of a great lover, the soul of a poet, and the nose for trouble.
In the little resort town of Nelson, Washington, well-loved Fire Chief C.D. Bales (Steve Martin) is sensitive about his remarkably long nose. Beautiful, intelligent astronomer Roxanne (Daryl Hannah), arrives in town to study a comet, finds herself attracted to another newcomer, C.D.'s imported professional firefighter Chris (Rick Rossovich). Roxanne confides her interest to the secretly-smitten C.D., who reluctantly passes it on to Chris. But Chris is dumbstruck, and convinces C.D. to ghost-write a letter to Roxanne-one that, unbeknownst to Chris, is an outpouring of C.D.'s own feelings for her. Since it seems to both men that Roxanne wants, as Chris tells C.D., “a man that looks like me and talks like you,” the deception continues, until Roxanne has fallen in love with the author of the passionate letters-while C.D. remains certain that she could never love a remarkable face like his.
“a comic masterpiece.” – Siskel & Ebert “lyrical, sweet-natured, touching, and very, very funny.” – Time Out
