One of the few French phrases that most Americans know is the infamous line, Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir? This line was made famous after Moulin Rouge hit theaters in 2001. The orginal French cabaret that inspired Moulin Rouge gained even more widespread fame after the movie’s release. It was first shown in France at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie won two Oscars and was an instant success. However, the actual live French cabaret show deserves some credit as well.
