  Moulin Rouge on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Can-Can-do attitude
  Nineteenth-century Paris comes colourfully to life in this lavish, high-kicking, gorgeously shot portrait of tormented artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, directed by screen-legend John Huston. On 18 November 2019, a new 4K restoration of Moulin Rouge comes to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, released by the BFI in a Dual Format Edition with a simultaneous release on BFI Player and iTunes.

Extras include Images of Paris in Silent Films, a selection of rare films from 1900-1925, preserved in the BFI National Archive and a new commentary by Angela Allen, a long standing associate of John Huston and script supervisor on Moulin Rouge.

Friend and chronicler of the eccentric characters who populate fiery Paris night spot the Moulin Rouge, Toulouse-Lautrec (José Ferrer, Cyrano de Bergerac) sips cognac and wears his disability lightly as he sketches the dancers who feature in his vivid works. But when he becomes embroiled in a turbulent relationship with a vivacious prostitute, he turns to the bottle and frustrated passion, love, heartbreak and painful self-discovery beckon in bawdy, bohemian Paris. Beautifully framed by the camerawork of award-winning cinematographer Oswald Morris (Fiddler on the Roof), this heartrending drama is played out against the lush strains of Georges Auric's evocative score.
