Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.
The year is 1899, and Christian, a young English writer, has come to Paris to follow the Bohemian revolution taking hold of the city's drug and prostitute infested underworld. 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. But her affections are also coveted by the club's patron: the Duke. A dangerous love triangle ensues 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... Written by
The movie was shot largely at Fox Studios in Sydney, Australia, with no location filming at all. See more »
In the "Elephant Love Medley" scene, Satine and Christian are obviously lip-syncing. A few times, they miss saying the word all together, or they are just a part of a second behind the pre-recorded vocals. See more »
The ending credits are printed on two (very long) hand painted rolls of paper. The camera is still while the paper is scrolled past. The place where the two pieces are joined is clearly visible. The crew tried to hide the splice, but couldn't make it look good enough, and so decided to keep it as seen in the movie. See more »
Absolute trash. No originality. A pure cynical exercise by Hollywood to make as much money as possible with gross manipulations & boring visual effects & a non-existent script & third rate songs which are 80-100 years before their time. I give this one 1/4 out of 10 at best. Baz must be the most overrated director in movie history.
