I adored and loved and adored(again!) Moulin Rouge. It had everything and I thought pulled it off brilliantly. The funny parts were funny and the tragic parts were tragic. Nicole was great, really wonderful and I loved her in it. I do think Ewan had a slighly more difficult role. It is incredibly hard to play that kind of role and come off as masculine and intelligent instead of wimpy and stupid. I wanted so much for the world to be the way he believed it could be so I could understand how everyone else was so attracted to the character, that "Orphean" quality of everyone wanting to follow Christian's "song".
