“The Moulin Rouge. A night club, a dance hall and a bordello. Ruled over by Harold Zidler. A kingdom of night time pleasures. Where the rich and powerful came to play with the young and beautiful creatures of the underworld. The most beautiful of these was the one I loved. Satine.”
Never knew I could feel like this. Like I’ve never seen the sky before. Want to vanish inside your kiss, every day I’m loving you more and more. Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing? Come back to me- and forgive everything.
Ben Whishaw in London Spy (Empire, September 2015)
