Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: Each of the courtesans at the Moulin Rouge has a specific name, along with a costume that reflects that name. Examples include French Maid, Petite Princess (a dwarf), Madame Fromage (a BigBeautifulWoman in clothing that suggests desserts), Travesty (which anyone who listens to [[Creator/EddieIzzard Eddie Izzard]] will know is French for "transvestite", who wears a man's suit and top hat on the top of her body, and a can-can dress on the bottom), and Pearly Queen (who wears various expensive-looking items, such as furs and pearls).


Added DiffLines:

** Tara Morice, who played Fran in Baz Luhrmann's ''Film/StrictlyBallroom'' cameos as a prostitute in the opening sequence.

* ArtisticLicenceBiology: [[spoiler: Someone suffering from the final stages of consumption would ''not'' be in any condition to sing, let alone be able to reach the high notes Satine does at the end.]]
** Which is consistent with the source material; much literature and theatre of the period inflicted their heroines with Tuberculosis, but reinterpreted said heroines' wasting sickness to "becomes attractively pale, thin and delicate-looking".

* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: The {{Trope Namer|s}}--in order to keep the Duke from having Christian killed, Zidler urges Satine to pretend she does not love him and never did, so he will leave the Moulin Rouge. It fails to make him leave, but breaks his heart only too well.

* DownerEnding: Since the movie opens with the main character sorrowfully saying "The woman I love...d is dead", it's not hard to guess where this will go. Paying close attention in the opening reveals [[spoiler:it's even worse--the Moulin Rouge got shut down after events of the main story]].

Added DiffLines:

* FisherKingdom: At the beginning of the film (with the Moulin Rouge closed), Monmartre has become a grey, desolate place. One flashback later and it is colorful and lively.
