Moulin Rouge (1928)

UK 130m, B&W, Silent
Director: Ewald André Dupont; Cast: Olga Tschechowa, Eve Gray, Jean Bradin

Set in Paris during the 1920s, this is a dark love story about a young man named Andre who is captivated by the star attraction at the Moulin Rouge. Unfortunately, he is also engaged to the headliner’s daughter who is oblivious to his true desires. Forbidden to marry the daughter of a dance hall performer by his old-fashioned father, and plagued by guilt, Andre considers a “solution” that could have devastating consequences. A slow-moving melodrama with documentary-like scenes of Paris, Moulin Rouge is a visual spectacle that contains not only elaborate dance hall numbers, but even an automobile chase that must be seen to be believed! (Klaus Ming August 2017).
