Director: Baz Luhrmann
Synopsis: The year is 1899, and Christian, Ewan McGregor, a young English writer, has come to Paris to follow the Bohemian revolution. And nowhere is the thrill of the underworld more alive than at the Moulin Rouge, a night club where the rich and poor men alike come to be entertained by the dancers, but things take a wicked turn for Christian as he starts a deadly love affair with the star courtesan of the club, Satine, Nicole Kidman. But her affections are also coveted by the club’s patron: the Duke. A dangerous love triangle appears as Satine and Christian attempt to fight all odds to stay together but a force that not even love can conquer is taking its toll on Satine.
Review: Jim Broadbent himself says that no one he knows has ever done a movie like this one. “Moulin Rouge!” is a movie, it’s true, but it’s a SHOW. Completely… Delicious to the eyes, to the ears and to the heart. The music is amazingly touching. As Ewan McGregor says, some of the lines are just to simple to be spoke, they have to be sung, and they turn into something beautiful. The voices of the actors are very good, and adjusted to their personality. All the color in the costumes and scenaries, turn this movie into a masterpiece. Baz Luhrmann did an amazing job, he achieved something that no other director had ever achieved: Turn a movie into a small little sweet chocolate, that totally praises your heart, and everytime you eat it, you discover something new.
I give this movie a 5 out of 5!
