Amusing, terrific compilation of songs, modern version of the impressionistic area of 1900. images, color(red, black and yellow), light/dark (clair obscure), music, language, ( writing jokes and So much references, also in poses :) ) , changes, variety, i always like Nicole Kidman.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Christian is an idealistic and impoverished young writer who, newly arrived in Montmartre, is haphazardly inducted into a circle of young bohemians led by Toulouse-Lautrec. A comedy of mistaken identities ensues, quickly enmeshing the young poet in a love triangle involving the unobtainable and consumptive Satine, queen courtesan of the Moulin Rouge, and the foppish Duke of Roxbury, his villainous rival for her affections.… (more)
