Moulin Rouge [2001]

Moulin Rouge is an exemplary movie musical. It features Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, both singing about their love tale in an epic movie which I personally felt swept the globe. It tell a story about a dancer, whom wishes to be an actress, and a 'kampung boy' whom dreams to be a writer, but their paths cross along the way.

The movie itself is a blower, but for those whom can't appreciate song lyrics, they might think otherwise because the movie revolves a lot on music, and knowing what's what through the lyrics. In fact, the soundtrack of the Moulin Rouge is one of the best ever produced, and it is most certainly not overrated.

Both Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor sang their hearts out in this movie, and I have to say that this two actors sound really harmonious together. As for the plot of the movie, it does seem predictable, but for what's it worth... it has a sad and teary tale, and it is worth to bring a tissue box while watching it. In this 21st century, I guess that the closest thing which can breach the success of such a musical is teenage favorite, High School Musical.
