The Daily Movie Quote: Moulin Rouge!
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return." - Toulouse-Lautrec, Moulin Rouge! (2001)

Directed By: Baz Luhrman
Ewan McGregor - Christian

Synopsis: Christian is an English writer who moves to Paris for inspiration and work. Upon joining a Bohemian acting troupe, to help write their musical, he is smitten by a gorgeous courtesan named Satine. Satine must now choose between her heart and her career as a nefarious Duke will only invest in the Moulin Rouge if Satine is a part of the deal.
Fact: The necklace Nicole Kidman wears was real. It had 1,308 diamonds weighing 134 carats and worth an estimated $1 million dollars.
Trivia: The Green Fairy is pop singer Kylie Minogue while its screaming voice is Ozzy Osbourne.
Movie Mistake: Satine is barefoot while singing 'I Hope You Don't Mind' to the Duke who is holding a bottle of wine. When Satine jumps on the bed she is wearing shoes and he is wineless.
My Take: There are only three other movies, se7en, The Dark Knight and Silence of the Lambs, that I walked out of numb. Did I really just see that? Was that as amazing as I thought it was? I spent the next two weeks deciphering what I saw and thinking about how much I liked it. What I love, like the other three films I mentioned, is how incredibly different and creative it was. I know there are people out there that despise musicals and my response would be that you haven't seen Moulin Rouge!
