Moulin Rouge (Special Edition) - DVD
Christian, a young writer with a magical gift for poetry, defies his bourgeois father by moving to the bohemian underworld of Montmartre, Paris. He is taken in by the absinthe-soaked artist Toulouse-Lautrec, whose party-hard life centres around the Moulin Rouge, a world of sex, drugs, electricity & the shocking Can-Can. Christian falls into a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with Satine, the Sparkling Diamond, the most beautiful courtesan in Paris & star of the Moulin Rouge.
