The French Embassy in Sri Lanka and Maldives will screen the famous French movie Edmond by Alexis Michalik on Monday 20 March at 6.30 p.m. at the National Film Corporation, Colombo 7.

The one hour and 49 minute film will be in the French language with English subtitles.

Synopsis: December 1897, Paris. Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty but already has two children and a lot of anxieties. He has not written anything for two years. In desperation, he offers the great Constant Coquelin a new play, a heroic comedy, in verse, for the holidays. Only concern – it is not written yet. Ignoring the whims of actresses, the demands of his Corsican producers, the jealousy of his wife, the stories of his best friend’s heart and the lack of enthusiasm of all those around him, Edmond starts writing this piece which nobody believes. For now, he has only the title: “Cyrano de Bergerac”.

The screening is free with seating on a first-come-first-served basis. For reservations -
