In scene one of the film “Moulin Rouge” directed by Baz Luhrmann there are many elements in order to make the film that much better and to create an atmosphere. There are many elements in the film in order for the viewers to understand the meaning of the film and the material. The performers in the film are Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor including many more. The reason for this is because the genre of the film is romantic as well as a drama and musical and these are the kind of genres that Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor are interested in being part of, although they also enjoy performing in other genres like horror in which Kidman was the main actress in the horror film of “The Others”. The text in the first scene of Moulin Rouge by Luhrmann, is the opening where it quotes, “Paris 1900” and the lyrics of the song which are written on a typewriter. The language of the film is english and the music was slow played by a piano. As well as that for the majority of the scene there was a song in which an actor sang. The colour of the production is black and white which signifies old as well as death. The props in the scene was a horse, the type writer and many more and this was all in order to fit in with the theme and the genre of the film. The film was mise-en-scene which is everything within the frame. Overall, this was my first time seeing any part of Baz Luhrmann’s film “Moulin Rouge” and even though I only viewed a few minutes of the film I enjoyed it thoroughly and I cannot wait to watch the film in the near future. It was especially enjoyable to notice all the elements and to write about them after going through them so thoroughly in class.
