Moulin Rouge!

TV Times - - Film Guide - Sky Drama & Ro­mance 10.05pm - 12.20am

A daz­zling feast of song, dance and colour

Aus­tralian di­rec­tor Baz Luhrmann’s wit­tily scored romantic mu­si­cal is set in the Paris of 1899 and sees Ewan Mcgre­gor’s pen­ni­less writer fall­ing for the star of the city’s Moulin Rouge, Ni­cole Kid­man. But he has a rival for her af­fec­tions in Richard Roxburgh’s wealthy Duke... The film sparkles from be­gin­ning to tragic end, and the use of mod­ern-day pop songs in a Victorian set­ting is a stroke of ge­nius. A toe-tap­ping joy that also sees Kylie Minogue

playing a fairy! Dir: Baz Luhrmann 2001, 12, 135min
