Informative, interesting, and very beautiful. It details the journey the film took from concept to completion as well as the historical background of the real-life Moulin Rouge and its inhabitants. I learned a lot and it made me look at the movie musical I love in a new way. Also? It really is a gorgeous book. Coffee-table worthy, even.
