Iconic film: Moulin Rouge (2001)

Pin It
Recuerdo perfectamente que la primera vez que vi Moulin Rouge en el cine salí hipnotizada. De hecho creo que estuve en estado de choc durante tres días. Y a la semana siguiente, repetí. Hasta el momento no me ha vuelto a pasar esto con ninguna otra película…

Dirigida por Baz Luhrmann en 2001 y protagonizada por Nicole Kidman (Satine), Ewan McGregor (Christian), John Leguizamo (Toulouse Lautrec), Jim Broadbent (Harold) y Richard Roxburgh (el Duque) narra la trágica historia de amor entre Christian y Satine en el París de 1900. 

Christian un escritor bohemio y romántico, se desplaza a París para escribir y descubrir el amor verdadero. Una noche sale con Toulouse Lautrec y sus amigos y van al Moulin Rouge donde actúa Satine, la cortesana más hermosa y deseada de todo París. Pero Satine se debatirá entre el amor puro y verdadero de Christian y el del Duque, un millonario que le puede ofrecer lo que siempre ha deseado: convertirse en una actriz de éxito.

El espectacular vestuario junto con la dirección artística, fue obra de Catherine Martin (mujer de Bazz Luhrmann) y de Angus Strathie. Su impresionante trabajo les supuso el primer Oscar de su carrera.

Aunque muchos vieron en el film una historia de amor cursi o una copia de Romeo y Julieta ambientada en el París bohemio de principios de siglo , en mi modesta opinó Luhrmann creó un musical arrebatador y magistral, con una banda sonora maravillosa y sorprendente, acompañada de un despliegue asombroso de imágenes a ritmo de videoclip.   

¿Mi frase favorita? “Lo mejor que te puede suceder es amar y ser correspondido”

¡¡Chicas no os la podéis perder!!


I perfectly remember  the first time I saw Moulin Rouge in the cinema. I was absolutely mesmerized when I left. In fact I believe that I was in shock for three days. Next week I went to see it again. Up-to-date I’ve never done that with any other film…

Directed by Baz Luhrmann in 2001 and starred by Nicole Kidman (Satine) , Ewan McGregor (Christian), John Leguizamo (Toulouse Lautrec), Jim Broadbent (Harold) and Richard Roxburgh (the Duke) it tells the tragic love story between Christian and Satine in Paris in 1900.

Christian is a bohemian and romantic writer who arrives to Paris to write and find true love.  One night he goes out with Toulouse Lautrec and his friends and they visit the Moulin Rouge where Satine - the most beautiful and desired courtesan of Paris - performs every night. But Satine would struggle between the love of Christian (true and pure) and the love of the Duke who can offer her everything she’s always wanted: being a star.

The spectacular wardrobe and artistic direction was the work of Catherine Martin (Luhrmann’s wife) and Angus Strathie.  Their impressive work was worth the Oscar.

Although many  thought the film was old fashioned or a copy of Romeo and Juliet, in my modest opinion Luhrmann created a breathtaking and captivating musical, with a marvelous and surprising  soundtrack, accompanied by an amazing display of spectacular images.

My favorite sentence? “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return”   

Ladies you simply can’t miss it!!





Did you know that the Green Fairy was Kylie Minogue??

In this film Nicole Kidman looked gorgeus. I think in no other film she appears so beautiful... (It is really a pity what Botox has made with her face...)


The magical end of the "Elephant Love Medley"




 
The passionate tango of  "Roxanne"

This astonishing necklace was specially made for the movie by Australian designer Stefano Canturi. It had 1,308 diamonds totaling 134 carats! It took more than 12 weeks to be made.
 
Breathtaking isn't it?

Come what may...



I will love you... until the end of time...
