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
According to adult film performer Monica Mayhem, some of the wardrobes for this film were borrowed for a production she was on and the production team and performers had to make sure the clothing never got messy. See more »
During "Hindi Sad Diamonds", there is a close-up shot of Zidler turning around to look at the Duke, who is sitting in the front row. The next wide shot shows Zidler's red turban facing Satine (upstage) at the bottom of the screen. The next shot is again a close-up with Zidler facing the audience and looking at the Duke. See more »
If you look at the story in an emotionless way then it is 'La Dame aux Camélias' meets contemporary music in an abundantly colourful background.
Only I can't look at it emotionlessly. It is just too spectacularly wonderful!
For me, this film lets euphoria take possession of me! It flows all through me and I feel sadness and bliss at the same time as it has me both smiling and crying ecstatically. It makes me yearn for "La grande passion" and, at the same time, feel that passion through Satine and Christian.
This is perfection!
