ProFklamboyant, Lyrical content

ConsFormulaic in a way

Moulin Rouge 2001: “The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn Is Just to Love and Be Loved In Return" “This story is about love The woman I loved is..... dead” So begins the film of Moulin Rouge and incidentally my first quote is from the opening track of the soundtrack album. Here today, I am...

ConsFlimsy premise & underdeveloped in parts perhaps

The Show Must Go On! I feel that Moulin Rouge barely needs any introduction. Whilst some may not have seen it, and some may hate it, I think it’s safe to say that most have at least heard of it. This is a musical predominantly, but blends drama and romance to be in a class of its own. I’m not...

“There was a boy..........”

ProGreat acting, direction and music

ConsNothing for me

You've got to hand it to Baz Luhrmann. His style might be a bit quirky, but he really knows how to give us a film full of fun, frolics and brilliant music. This 2003 film sees the unlikely musical pairing of Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman team up to give us a love story set in the backdrop of...

ProThe Roxanne scene and the actors performances.

ConsIncoherent Editing style. Unrelatable characters. ...

Firstly, I would like to establish the fact that shortly after this film's VHS release, when I was about 8 or 9, I was in fact a very enthusiastic fan of the movie, I knew all the lyrics to all the songs and all the words to the iconic scenes, I even had fully listened to the 2-disc soundtrack...

ProExciting and romantic

ConsJust one song I didnt really like

Moulin Rouge is a 2001 musical film that was directed/ produced and written by Baz Luhrmann. The film is rated 12 due to one use of language, some moderate references to sex and mild violence and it is 122 minutes long. With a budget of $52,500,000, Moulin Rouge went on to make nearly $180...

I would say this is the best Love Story ever since Romeo and Juliet. I have watched this film at least 20 times and know all the lyrics to all the songs. Its just such an emotional film, and yet pure genious at the same time. Christian (Ewan Mcgregor) wants to write a novel about love, his...

ConsNone (honestly - none)!

ProYou'll be swept away

ConsYou wont stop crying

There is no love story like it. Need I say more? The story begins at the end, with bohemian writer Christian and the love of his life, Satine. The story deals with love, truth, beauty and freedom. Penniless writer Christian moves to Paris to fulfil his dreams of writing about love. After meeting...

Product Information : Moulin Rouge (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Cross LA BOHEME with CABARET, throw in a little bit of RENT, and you might almost begin to describe Baz Luhrmann's visually opulent, fast-paced, funny, heartrending MOULIN ROUGE. The film, which premiered as the opener to the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, is a musical set in 1899 Paris at the notorious Montmartre cabaret club, the Moulin Rouge. Directed by Baz Luhrmann (WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO AND JULIET, STRICTLY BALLROOM), the movie stars Nicole Kidman as the high-kicking courtesan, Satine; Ewan McGregor as the sensitive poet, Christian; and John Leguizamo as the flamboyant artist and matchmaker, Toulouse-Lautrec. Luhrmann's use of eclectic lighting and saturated color, the fast zooms and quick cuts of his camera, and his magnificent costumes and sets perfectly capture the excess and freneticism for which the Moulin Rouge was famous. Beautifully led by McGregor and Kidman, the flawless supporting cast brings to life the culture of belle epoque Paris with magical realism. Above all, the anachronistic, energetic contemporary soundtrack is what drives MOULIN ROUGE, with popular songs by L'il Kim, Christina Aguilera, David Bowie, and Beck--as well as Kidman and McGregor adding their own superb vocals.
