Which of these Moulin Rouge quotes is your favorite?
This movie is a tragic love story right from the beginning. Moulin Rouge hits us right in the feels with the “star-crossed lovers” theme as soon as the characters meet.
Satine mistakes Christian for the duke she was supposed to meet with.
Satine is supposed to belong to The Duke, as part of a business deal, but Christian wins her heart.
I won’t spoil all the drama and the songs (Spectacular, Spectacular) used to tell the tale of the pair falling in love or The Duke’s jealousy, but suffice it to say—it’s pretty epic!
Then the tragedy hits and this time Moulin Rouge leaves us in a puddle of tears.
However, the show must go on, and we do get to see how the remaining characters move forward with their lives.
If you have watched Moulin Rouge, you are probably crying now.
If you haven’t, then you should stream it!
