Moulin Rouge

Well done, but over-long. It's a love complication with the young man falling for his fiancee's mother, the leading lady of the Moulin Rouge revue.

Well done, but over-long. It’s a love complication with the young man falling for his fiancee’s mother, the leading lady of the Moulin Rouge revue.

Except for occasional shots where the players’ eyes are over-shadowed with that persistent habit of European film makers to ignore the importance of proper make-up, Moulin Rouge is photographically good. Its principals are interesting personalities, notably Olga Tschechowa, who resembles Pola Negri but with more humor.

Some of the backstage stuff is done exceptionally well, better, in fact, than the usual Hollywood efforts to reproduce convincingly a musical stage show. On this angle alone and on the general richness and novelty of its background, Moulin Rouge will hold interest.
