This mash up of music, stories and styles sounds nuts on paper. Baz Luhrmann is however just the man to bring it all together in stunning fashion and produce this incredible film. Its a musical, its a love story, there's danger and someone dies. Set to a sound scape of David Bowie, Beck and the stars of the show, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, its pacey and exciting throughout. Although we knew tragedy was coming for the lovers I was genuinely choked up at the end. If love cant last between a writer and a courtesan in a giant elephant in Paris, where can it?
HARD TIMES FOR SATINE Christian is a penniless writer. He comes to the Moulin Rouge and meets its star Satine. She thinks he is rich and starts to seduce him, then she knows the truth and changes idea. Toulouse-Lautrec, Bohemians' chief, enrols Christian in their club to write their plot. The Satine's manager has already enrolled the star in his club. Finally, a true rich gets but satine has fallen in love with Christian. Tubercolosis has the last word. In "La Traviata", Violetta tells her love has been defeated only by her illness. In "Moulin Rouge", Satine seems to be defeated by something else. This movie has had audience and Oscars. Its plot is modern though there is the old Can-Can in the background. Maybe this dance is too wild, but is representative. Well, there are also another dances.
