“Tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan bedazzlement, a sensual ravishment!” Moulin Rouge as described by Moulin Rouge. The first musical of this podcast. The story of a cabaret courtesan (Nicole Kidman) who falls in love with a penniless play-writer (Ewan McGregor). Is there enough “sensual ravishment” to recommend the film? Do the characters and story only serve to support the music and not vice versa?

Hosted by Karri Ojala and Henrik Telkki. Edit by Karri Ojala. The Flick Lab theme tune by Nick Grivell.
