Moulin Rouge

Question: What is the song that Christian is singing during the Roxanne dance scene? I recognise the words, but I think it is to a different tune.

Answer: Christian is not singing Roxanne, just the Argentinian. I believe Christian's words are original and not from a previous song.

Answer: The words are from "Roxanne" by The Police, and the tune is "Le Tango du Moulin Rouge".

Answer: He's supposed to be the actual person.

Question: Seconds before Satine makes her entrance on the trapeze singing 'Diamonds...' Toulouse whispers something to Christian. It starts with 'Christian, we've successfully...' what else does Toulouse say?

Answer: Toulouse says to Christian, "Mission accomplished. We have successfully evaded Zidler."

Answer: It's not clear. Given that they owed a lot of money to the Duke, he probably closed them down.

Trivia: At the beginning, right after Christian sings the 'hills are alive' line, the unconscious Argentinian says something about him having lots of talent, and 'happens' to put his hand on his crotch. Then later in the movie, when Satine is unbuttoning his pants when they are in the elephant for the first time, she calls him a 'big boy' and Toulouse says he has HUGE talent.
