Paris, 1899, and romantic poet Christian starts hanging out at the notorious Moulin Rouge. On first glimpsing the club's star, Satine, he falls madly in love, and she returns his feelings. But with her health deteriorating and a jealous Duke set on separa
A breathtaking baroque film that marries the best of theatre, opera and cinematic technique. Luhrmann generally keeps a grip on the chaotic proceedings and his cast throw themelves at the material with gusto - in short, a triumphant, if uncoventional, rewarding experience.
