Nineteenth-century Paris comes vibrantly alive in Jean Renoir's exhilarating tale of the opening of the world-renowned Moulin Rouge. Jean Gabin plays the wily impresario Danglard, who makes the cancan all the rage while juggling the love of two beautiful women-an Egyptian belly-dancer and a naive working girl turned cancan star. This celebration of life, art and the City of Light-with a cameo by Edith Piaf-is a Technicolor tour de force by a master of modern cinema.
