Is your Cyrano de Bergerac in French? I wish I could understand French well enough to listen to books on tape or watch movies and catch all the words.

I watched Cyrano de Bergerac in French with English subtitles, but, I haven't reviewed that yet. I read the play in English. And I listened to the audio book in English. It sounds great in French. I pick out a few words, but, would be lost without subtitles.
