We will publish your review of Moulin Rouge [Blu-ray] on Blu Ray within a few days as long as it meets our guidelines.
None of your personal details will be passed on to any other third party.
Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play. This double-disc package sets new standards of presentation while also having an ideally appropriate light-heartedness. The extra features are as inventive in their use of the format as the film itself. Highlights include not one but two commentaries--one by Luhrmann, his designer and his cinematographer, the other with Lurhmann and his fellow scriptwriter Craig Pearce. We get two videos of "Lady Marmalade" and there are also uncut dance numbers, for example the fabulously dark Tango sequence in all its detail, which come with alternate camera angles so that you can edit your own version. There are whole segments on the glittery costumes, the three-dimensional model of Paris and the transformation of Kylie Minogue into the Green Fairy of absinthe.
Baz Luhrmann directs this remake of the 1952 musical about a Parisian cabaret club called the Moulin Rouge. Struggling British writer Christian (Ewan McGregor) relocates to the Montmartre district of Paris in the hope that being among other bohemian writers will inspire him to complete his latest novel. When he meets his neighbours, a troupe of performers led by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo), Christian lends his writing skills to finish their work-in-progress show; when complete, the troupe hope to sell their show to the Moulin Rouge, the most decadent club in Paris. On his first visit to the club, Christian finds himself falling hopelessly in love with dancer and courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman). As the two grow closer, events conspire to keep the young lovers apart, including the fact that Satine has been promised to the Duke of Monroth (Richard Roxburgh). The cast also includes Jim Broadbent as owner of the Moulin Rouge Harold Zidler and Kylie Minogue as the Green Fairy.
