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.

I saw it last night. although there are so many diffrences between the book and the movie, but each one have some strong points that made it a "MUST" to read or see.

This is a great accompaniment to the film. It's mostly pictures so don't expect a novel, but it's worth a purchase if you adore the film.

As a hard-core fan of the movie, I drank in every page, every image, every word. A great companion for Baz lovers and movie buffs alike.
