A gloriously romantic film which races along at breakneck speed to tell the tale of Satine (Nicole Kidman) the star dancer at the Moulin Rouge and lonely lovelorn Christian (Ewan McGregor) who with Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo) will write a show to spotlight Satine’s brilliance. Baz Luhrmann creates a wonderfully flamboyant film all colour and music, sound, motion and operatic excess which can be seen over and over again.
