"No matter what sin you have committed or what desire you harbor, here you are welcome! "
"This is a story about love ... about passionate love, desperate love, frenzied love - about the kind of love you never forget."
Paris 1899. A young writer falls in love with the star of the legendary Moulin Rouge nightclub. But Christian and Satine's love is tragically tested when the influential Duke of Monroth appears on the scene. He wants to take over the financially stricken Moulin Rouge - including the establishment's "sparkling diamond": Satine.
Together with nightclub owner Harold Zidler and Paris' most extravagant bohemians - the brilliant but starving artist Toulouse-Lautrec and Santiago, the city's most ardent tango dancer - Christian stages a musical theater piece to save the Moulin Rouge and fight for his love.
