Then a form begins to shuffle noisily across the stage.The confident and offhand elegance Ardant brings to Anne-Marie serves as a counterpoint to the passionate, and at times enraged, melancholy Depardieu brings to the role of Michel.Onstage, however, the French celebrity is transformed into Michel, who pleads for his ex-wife to stay with a quivering tenderness in his voice, and a confused vulnerability in his features as he hesitantly reaches out to caress Anne-Marie's hair.Lost for words, he waves his white handkerchief in the air and sinks his head into his hands, a gesture of desperation so human, so empathetic, that it's easy to forget the man once played Cyrano de Bergerac – a figure whose character is as laughably large as his nose. When Michel is exasperated with Anne-Marie, a sarcastic edge cuts through his tone and for a fleeting moment it is possible to detect Depardieu's own persona coming through in his portrayal.
