The love triangle
24 October 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Moulin Rouge is a British film made by German director Ewald André Dupont.

At its best, it displays the talent of Russian born silent movie star Olga Tschechowa who plays Parysia. She is the sultry star of the Moulin Rouge in Paris performing her alluring dances.

At its worse it is an absurd melodrama as Parysia meets her daughter Margaret, after several years at finishing school where she is introduced to her fiance, Andre.

After Parysia persuades Andre's father to consent to the marriage, she finds that her prospective son in law has become spellbound towards her after seeing her perform in the Moulin Rouge.

Emotions become highly charged when Margaret gets severely injured in an automobile accident.

Moulin Rouge has little to do with the famous Parisian theatre. It is a drama of its time, when moving pictures were still in its infancy.
