"Anglo-Saxons all, we have much to learn and far to go. Let us admit it. Let me try to think of a good British film and I will give you MOULIN ROUGE." (Kenneth Macpherson)
"Just about as un-English as a film could be, and missed the spirit which it probably would have had if it had been produced in France or Germany." (Lionel Collier)
