Club Moulin Rouge - an experience you won't forget!
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.
This story is about love, overcoming all obstacles.
He entered in a world where fantasies are real.
Filming had to be put on hold for two weeks after Nicole Kidman fractured two ribs and injured her knee while rehearsing a dance routine for the film. Many of the scenes where she is seen only from the chest up were shot while she was in a wheelchair.

The diamond necklace worn by Nicole Kidman was the most expensive piece of jewelry ever specifically made for a film. The Stefano Canturi necklace was made with 1,308 diamonds, weighing a total of 134 carats and was worth an estimated U.S. $1 million.

Satine had a three-year-old child in the original drafts of the script. The story was told in flashbacks, by Christian to the child.
