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
During Spectacular Spectacular, as Toulouse is yelling "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return" you see him start to grab the rope. When he starts to fall after Christian sings "Come What May" we see him not holding the rope, then suddenly he has the rope in his hand when he's falling towards the stage. See more »
The greatest movie you'll ever see is Moulin Rouge!!!!!
I love this movie.Baz has the greatest ideals and the best taste.This movie is even greater than than even Brassed off.I of course love Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman are the greatest actors\ress.That dynamic duo both have great singing voices.The only part I don't get is why The Duke didn't die instead of Satine.I almost cried. ~Andrea
