A tragic, horrifying, intense drama based on real life events, about 937 German Jewish refugees who left Nazi occupied Germany, to learn that nobody wanted them. This powerful film etches in rich detail, the story of the desperate lives of 937 Jewish Germans, offered a safe haven in Havana, Cuba. They depart Hamburg in high spirits looking forward to their new life. Some were concentration camp victims, some survivors of ‘the night of shattered crystal’, others just wanted to join relatives in Cuba. Some were wealthy enough to afford their voyage, but most left everything behind in the hope they could escape the Nazi terror. The passengers are unaware that the voyage is a sham, simply one of Josef Goebbels’ propaganda exercises. The ship will not be able to dock in Havana, and when the rest of the world turns the ship away, the Jews will have to return to Germany. On June 1, 1939, just as hope had all but vanished, the passengers receive word that Belgium, Holland, France and Britain agree to accept the passengers. Come what may, the passengers resolve not to return to Hamburg, or the camps.
Liza Minnelli stars in this musical extravaganza set in a Berlin cabaret in 1931, where the rising tide of Nazism has direct effects on the lives of several individuals.
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome to Cabaret. The winner of eight Academy Awards, it boasts a score by the legendary songwriting partnership behind another film that would energize the movie musical genre with equal razzle-dazzle 30 years later: Chicago's John Kander and Fred Ebb. Inside the Kit Kat Club of 1931 Berlin, starry-eyed singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and an impish emcee (Joel Grey) sound the clarion call to decadent fun, while outside a certain political party grows into a brutal force. Cabaret caught lightning (and won Oscars) for Minnelli, Grey and director Bob Fosse, who shaped a triumph of style and substance. Come to this Cabaret, old chum. You'll never want to leave.
