"Moulin Rouge" may be one of the first movies to open musical doors for its leading performers.

Even Jim Broadbent proves to be well cast in a crazy, intensified character that he really sinks his teeth into.

The film includes an interesting use of the bookend structure, and I like how it reveals the information about the main character's deadly disease early.

However, she believes herself to be a simple prostitute, who should never fall in love because it will get in the way of success.

When the Duke agrees to produce a major production at the Moulin Rogue, but only under his circumstances, things become even more complicated. Apart from the cast, the film's big list of musical artists includes David Bowe, Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink, Fatboy Slim, Beck, and many others.

Kidman's breakthrough roles were in the 1989 feature film thriller Dead Calm and television thriller miniseries Bangkok Hilton. (2001) earned her a second Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical and her first nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

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.
