Moulin Rouge (2001)

The sad love story 
of a courtesan and a penniless writer

Moulin Rouge means
the Red Windmill.

Set in 1899,
Christian (Ewan McGregor), a young penniless writer
travels to Paris
to write about love.

The problem is,
he's never been in love before.

After some unusual situations,
he met a group of people
who persuaded him to go to the Moulin Rouge,
to meet with the diamond of the nightclub,
Satinne (Nicole Kidman).

He meets her and they fall in love,
but unknown to Christian,
Satinne has been booked by a duke.

They fools the duke into sponsoring them
for a play and transforming the Moulin Rouge into a theater,
Satinne and the lead actress.

The duke agrees
and their work start.

Meeting under the idea of script discussion,
Christian and Satinne secretly pours out their love to each other.

At the end of the movie,
their play "spectacular-spectacular"
which is actually about their forbidden love
is a great success,

You can more or less guess the ending 
going through the film
but what I like about the show,
is the singing and dancing. 
Especially one of the songs somewhere near the ending of the movie.
Where the Argentinian sang his song. 

If you love movies with lots of colours,
singing and dancing,
and a very sad love story,
you have to watch this. 

that's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~

p.s. Since it's a story based in a nightclub,
please be sensible enough to expect revealing clothing
and "unappealing" body gestures. 

This song is actually in the movie.
Lady Marmalade.

The way they dress in this MV is exactly how people in the movie are dressed. 

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir

The "tagline" of the song

means would you like to have sex with me tonight.

Don't simply say it to anyone.
