Cabaret is a 1972 American musical drama film directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York, and Joel Grey. Situated in Berlin during the Weimar Republic in 1931, under the presence of the growing Nazi Party, the film is loosely based on the 1966 Broadway musical Cabaret by Kander and Ebb,
The Story is set in Berlin 1931, where a young American Sally Bowles performs at the Kit Kat Klub. Brian Roberts is a new British arrival in the city, and he moves into the boarding house where Sally lives. A reserved academic and writer, Brian gives English lessons to earn a living while completing his doctorate. And Sally introduces Brian into the decadent, anarchic, bohemian, German life style in the last days of the Weimar Republic, before the rise of the Nazis. Taken as a generalization about a national movement, this is certainly extreme oversimplification. But taken as one approach to the darker recesses of Nazism, it may come pretty close to the mark.
