A Fool To Believe from ‘Moulin Rouge!’ (2001)


Nicole Kidman in ‘Moulin Rouge!’ (2001)

Satine (Nicole Kidman) expresses her feelings, in six words, as the climax of the film approaches.



Satine: “I was a fool to believe. A fool to believe. It all ends today. Yes it all ends… today.”

Zidler: “Send Christian away. Only you can save him.”

Satine: “He’ll fight for me.”

Zidler: “Yes. Unless he believes you don’t love him.”

Satine: “What!?”

Zidler: “You’re a great actress Satine. Make him believe you don’t love him.”

Satine: “No.”

Zidler: “Use your talent to save him. Hurt him. Hurt him to save him. There is no other way. The show *must* go on Satine. We’re creatures of the underworld; we can’t afford to love.”

Satine: “Today’s Our Day, When Dreaming Ends.”
