Moulin Rouge stands out as a truly artistic production flawlessly directed by John Huston and presenting superb performances by Ferrer, Colette Marchand and Suzanne Flon, and Technicolor photography of a beauty rarely achieved on the screen.
The film is so visually stimulating, it is impossible to look away.
Atmospheric drama with superior performance by Ferrer in lead. Great period set design, costumes.
only lightly touches Montmartre's edgier lifestyle, but credibly renders a serviceable biopic of its prototypical artist.
A beautifully shot, measured movie that never really builds up enough sympathy for Lautrec to really move viewers.
Technicolor is a wonderful way to highlight Toulouse-Lautrec's work which the film does well and Zsa Zsa is fun in what is probably her best role. However Huston's pacing is slow and Ferrer gives a self important, dull performance.
I'll admit I like the new Moulin Rouge movie better than this one. This movie is sort of a historical drama, but I'm not sure how true it is to history, it's a strange movie with strange characters. I didn't really care for it, but it's not that bad either.
A wonderful companion piece to the more recent version and completely opposite in terms of tone. Ferrer is fantastic as Lautrec and the effects used to give the impression of him being short are faultless over 50 years on. The art direction and costume design were both worthy of their Oscar wins. The plot and pacing however are often uneven and repetitive as Lautrec meets new women who essentially treat him the same way. The first relationship became annoying with how every scene was simply arguing. For the most part though it is a haunting anti-romance with enough discussion points for any artist.
Excellent biopic of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, the turn of the century painter whose legs were deformed by a childhood accident, leaving him essentially a dwarf. Jose Ferrer does a great job in conveying the frustration and pain -- both physical and emotional -- of someone in his condition. The scenes in the Moulin Rouge club is visually exciting, making you understand why he wanted to spend so much time there. Anyone with any knowledge of Lautrec and his art will recognize the inspirations of his paintings. But you don't have to know anything about him at all. It's interesting on its own. Keep an eye out -- not too difficult -- for Zsa Zsa Gabor in an early role as a performer at the club. This film is completely different and MUCH better than that musical tripe starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan MacGregor.
