Moulin Rouge is a feast for the senses; the score, the plot,the costumes, the choreography, the acting, the set design and attractiveness of the protagonists...all work together to make one of the greatest love stories of all time.
Courtisan Satine, of the Moulin Rouge falls in love with a poor writer Christian and a whirl-wind romance insues; which must be kept secret from 'The Duke' a client of Satine's and bank roller of the musical which will finally make her an actress.
I absolutely love the soundtrack to this album; the songs have replaced the 'power ballad' for my drunken outbursts. Most notably, what I love about this film is its ability to unify all of woman-kind. Furthermore Ewan Mcgregor and Nicole Kidman have remarkably good voices.
Moulin Rouge, chews up and spits out every other romance/rom-com ever made. Its the pinnacle of its genre.
