Baz Luhrmann is a fantastic director. I really enjoyed this film although it is not his best work. This is the first film that Baz Luhrmann directed. This is also the first part of the Red Curtain Trilogy. The others are Romeo and Juliet and also Moulin Rouge!. In 1993 at the Baftas this won 3 awards. They were for Best Costume Design, Best Original Film Score and Best Production Design. In 1992 at the Cannes Film Festival this won the Best Foreign Film.
