The Daily Movie Quote: Moulin Rouge!

Nicole Kidman as Satine in Moulin Rouge!
Nicole Kidman as Satine in Moulin Rouge!

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

20th Century Fox, PG-13, 97 minutes

Directed By: Baz Luhrman


Ewan McGregor - Christian

Nicole Kidman - Satine

John Leguizamo - Toulouse-Lautrec

Jim Broadbent - Harold Zidler

Richard Roxburgh - The Duke

Domestic Box Office Gross: $57,386,369

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!

      It was sad about Heath Ledger and I think that detoured me from seeing the movie during that time. I met him near Seattle during his filming in 10 Things I Hate About You, actually it was in Fife, WA near Seattle where I waited on him. Never thought to get his autograph either. I didn't really know who he was at that time- bummer! You really know your movies and I enjoy your hubs!

      The Dark Knight is a wow movie because of two people, the director Chris Nolan and the performance of Heath Ledger. He would have won every single one of those awards had he lived because that performance was amazing.

      I couldn't agree with you more on Moulin Rouge. It was a great story and awesome visuals. It was the first DVD I ever owned. I will have to see Dark Knight- haven't seen it yet.
