Moulin Rouge


“The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” Moulin Rouge


One of my favorite musicals!

"Nicole Kidman sizzles as Satine, a dazzling nightclub star. She unwittingly draws Christian (Ewan McGregor), a struggling young writer, into her seductive spell, sparking scandal and explosive consequences. Satine, the dazzling star of a popular French nightclub that caters to society's decadent elite. At the height of her sexual power, the stunning courtesan ignites the innermost of all the men who come in contact with her. She unwittingly draws Christian, a struggling young writer portrayed by Ewan McGregor, into her seduction spell. His love for her is forbidden, obsessive and unstoppable. Their steamy affair sparks scandal and explosive consequences".

These are a few of my favorite songs and scenes in the movie.

This is the highlight of the movie for me - I LOVE THIS example of STAGE TIME -
from the audience (or the HOUSE as we call it in the Theatre) when Ewan McGregor who plays Christian - Sings back to Satine and ALL the heads and bodies turn to look at him. It is a great moment - nice stage direction as well.
