For photography and film fans, a stunning visual book showcasing the latest film from the visionary director of William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet and Strictly Ballroom, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan MacGregor—a tragicomical musical set in the infamous, gaudy, and glamorous Parisian nightclub in the late 1800s. Moulin Rouge (selected as Opening Night Event at the Cannes Film Festival) is a celebration of love and creative inspiration that brings together gorgeous period design and modern-era pop tunes to create a unique motion picture experience. Nicole Kidman plays the club's most notorious star, forced to choose between a young writer's inspiration and another man's obsession. Ewan MacGregor is the writer who finds himself plunged into this decadent world where anything goes—except falling in love. The film also stars John Leguizamo as Toulouse-Lautrec, Jim Broadbent, and Richard Roxburgh. The gorgeous book, designed by the Bazmark production team headed by Catherine Martin, tells the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the film, and features exclusive photos taken on the set by such world-famous photographers as Douglas Kirkland, Mary Ellen Mark, and Ellen Von Unwerth. Over 250 color photographs and illustrations.

"I was left with the understanding that the Bollywood musical and its outrageous tragicomic storytelling succeeded because of a deal that exists between the film and its audience... the pretence that what is to be experienced is in any way real is swept away," explains Baz Luhrmann in Moulin Rouge! A Film Directed by Baz Luhrmann of his original inspiration for the movie. Absinthe; gaslight; sultry, pallid, Toulouse-Lautrec-inspired characters; drag; more absinthe; contortionists, Siamese twins, song, dance, sets and cinematography to set the mind reeling characterize this unprecedented musical film set in the "real artificiality" of Luhrmann's Parisian/Bohemian/modernized-turn-of-the-century vision. Cinematic and plot highlights, behind-the-scenes shots and confessions by producers, choreographers, cinematographers, editors, etc., along with images by guest photographers Ellen Von Unwerth, Mary Ellen Mark and Douglas Kirkland, give fans a chance to luxuriate in the stunning visual array that whirls dizzyingly by in the film.
