Moulin Rouge! (2001)


Coming Out at 24 May 2001 in theaters

Drama, Musical, Romance

Moulin Rouge! is a jukebox musical romantic drama film directed, co-produced, and co-written by Baz Luhrmann. The film tells the story of a young English poet/writer, Christian (Ewan McGregor), who falls in love with the star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman). It uses the musical setting of the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, France. The film is the third part of Luhrmann’s “Red Curtain Trilogy,” following Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet.

At the 74th Academy Awards, the film was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Nicole Kidman, winning two: for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design. It was the first musical nominated for Best Picture in 10 years, following Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (1991). In BBC’s 2016 poll of the greatest films since 2000, Moulin Rouge! ranked 53rd.

In the year 1900, a man named Christian, suffering from depression, begins writing on his typewriter (“Nature Boy”). As Christian narrates, the film flashes back to one year earlier upon Christian’s move to the Montmartre district of Paris to become a writer among members of the area’s Bohemian movement. He soon discovers that his neighbours are a loose troupe of performers led by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Toulouse-Lautrec and the others ask for Christian’s help, and his writing skills allow them to finish their proposed show, Spectacular Spectacular, that they wish to sell to the owner of the Moulin Rouge, Harold Zidler.

The group arrives at the Moulin Rouge as Zidler and his “Diamond Dog Dancers” perform for the audience (“Zidler’s Rap Medley/Can Can Dance”). Toulouse arranges for Christian to see Satine, the star courtesan, in her private quarters to present the work, unaware that Zidler has been promising Satine to the wealthy and psychopathic Duke of Monroth, a potential investor in the cabaret (“Sparkling Diamonds”).
