An analysis of the 2001 film moulin rouge

And for the grand finale, Satine and Christian sing together in harmony: I appreciate, however, that they managed to do this without a lot of ironic, self-referential, post-modern digs at the conventions of the film, as this gets really old really fast.

Also, on these outings, and when he keeps interrupting Christian and Satine, he keeps unconsciously coming out with comments that can be taken sexually. Obviously, the convention of everyone using British accents is used so that a the audience can understand, and b the characters can understand each other Christian and the Duke are English, remember, while Satine, Toulouseand Zidler are French, we assume, along with everyone else.

While the costumes make sense for the themes of the film sex vs.

One of the supporters usually believes they could be meant for each other early in the narrative, but the other resists this decision. Christian denounces Satine and walks off the stage.

Both scene feature reversals in character, as the initiator turns into the victim. This need to look how others want her to is a defining characteristic of Satine as an object. I think not —in Moulin Rouge, this is the world Christian has escaped from, and the world the Duke represents; and the under, or Dionysian, world of lack of control Dionysius is also the Greek god of drinking and orgies, etc.

In fact, before the film is over, his fantasy of love will have overturned the fantasy of money, and destroyed the underworld in the process. Romance for the Duke is not real romance, but the artificial trappings of it; Christian is all about real romance, and this is always being contrasted.

Indeed to this younger audience a movie likePulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino, may supply a similar sort of enjoyment that a high construct movie such asArmageddon Michael Bay, might supply — iconic images, memorable soundtrack and a root in popular civilization.

Lots of foreshadowing in this film.

Satine tells Christian that their relationship endangers the show, but he counters by writing a secret love song to affirm their love "Come What May". For example the special effects on the fairy flying out from the bottle of absinth as they drink it and all the zoom shots going into Montmartre.

Then, later that night, when Satine has died and the camera ascends through the roof of the Moulin Rouge, it is snowing out. And, the Duke has a few ideas of his own, which they either applaud the magical sitar giving the game awayor ignore someone dying in the end.

Also, on these outings, and when he keeps interrupting Christian and Satine, he keeps unconsciously coming out with comments that can be taken sexually. Combined with the building music, this creates a great tension, which builds and builds, until all you see are shots of everyone yelling, then Chocolat punches the Duke, Nini falls to the ground, and the music stops.

She steps into the room then, as she struggles to control her emotions, but the final confrontation comes in the doorway, as she tells Christian that the story really ends with the courtesan choosing the maharajah.

Then you get the second act, with them being in love, and the plot builds. And, as it plays out, this proves to be accurate. The lighting on him is a saturated blue light and the detail of the typewriter, his vest, beard, greasy hair, more bottles, the windmill and himself in despair. When thunder crashes in the background, or the last leaf falls from a tree, everyone knows what that means.

Postmodern film making: An analysis of Moulin Rouge

Most of the criticism of Moulin Rouge seems to indicate that the person speaking has significantly misunderstood the film. Yes, it is an unusual film in most aspects (except for the plot), but I believe that everyone involved knew exactly what they were doing—this is reinforced if you listen to the commentaries on the DVD, where the method behind the madness is revealed (for.

Now, not the whole film is edited in this manner, as in a narrative film this would be rather counter-productive, not to mention frustrating for the audience, but there are two significant sequences done this way: the sequence from the time Christian first arrives at the Moulin Rouge to the time Satine appears; and the “El Tango de Roxanne” sequence.
