The film is like an extravagant, expensive Broadway production on screen, with enough open courage, engrossing passion, and zesty energy for several motion pictures. It's one of the year's best films; "Moulin Rouge! He creates a candid, exuberant style for his Moulin Rouge - Les Fantômes - Les Inédits (Vol. 2) (CD) mixture between a fast-paced music video and lush, exotic images.
He uses a vast variety of camera placements and shooting angles. In several of the songs, he cuts on nearly every word. This does indeed make us dizzy, but it is the perfect approach to the material. From the opening moments, "Moulin Rouge! The film doesn't even wait for its opening credits to begin. The usual 20th Century Fox logo appears on the screen within a screen as a little bald musician rises from the bottom, Moulin Rouge - Les Fantômes - Les Inédits (Vol.
2) (CD), and continues to frantically conduct the traditional Fox fanfare. Moulin Rouge - Les Fantômes - Les Inédits (Vol. 2) (CD) this, we cut to "The Sound of Music," where young writer morns over the loss of his true love. 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.
This is the kind of movie that does not need to astonish us with sudden plot twists or unexpected character revelations. The joy of watching "Moulin Rouge! Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman prove that they can really sing. Most of the time, celebrity singers turn to the silver screen with a lot of star power but little acting ability. Even Jim Broadbent proves to be well cast in a crazy, intensified character that he really sinks his teeth into. I will never Moulin Rouge - Les Fantômes - Les Inédits (Vol.
2) (CD) at any of these stars in the same light again, even, to my great reluctance, John Leguizamo. The film takes place in the early 19th century, as Christian McGregor enters Paris hoping to write love stories. Several peculiar figures live above him, including the French artist Toulouse-Lautrec Leguizamo and his Bohemian troupe attempting to construct a play. After a freak accident, Christian is suddenly thrust into the middle of their play. The crew hires him as the star writer.
It is here where he tries to persuade the club's popular, sexy lead performer and courtesan, Satine Kidmanto work in their production. After mistaking Christian for a rich and powerful aristocrat, The Duke Richard RoxburghSatine falls in love with Christian, much to the dismay of many.
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. The Duke demands that Satine becomes his personal property if Harold and the others want his financial support. Obviously, the best thing in "Moulin Rouge! The kind of music that plays here does not account for a period epic at all, however.
The elegant sets, eventful style, and powerful choreography scream modern day, post-pop-culture. I ran out to purchase the motion picture soundtrack.
You should, too. But listening to the soundtrack on your CD player at home is nothing like experiencing the memorable singing and dancing, sexual energy, and relentless enthusiasm on the big screen. As I say in very few film critiques, some movies are you watch, others you experience. It is a bizarre, unique blend of exhaustive energy and lively action-one of the bravest, most ambitious and entertaining movies of the year.

Most casual viewers and amateur reviewers apparently like it, but it seems to rub some people decidedly the wrong way for various reasons. Old-fashioned it certainly is, especially when compared to Baz Luhrmann's frenetic rock video-style musical.
