British author Christopher Isherwood, who originated the character of Sally Bowles in his short story "Goodbye to Berlin", enjoyed the attention the movie "Cabaret" brought to his career, but felt Liza Minnelli was too talented for the role. Sally, an amateur talent who lived under the delusion she had star quality, was, according to Isherwood, the antithesis of "Judy Garland's daughter". See more »
After she's tried to seduce Brian, Sally brings her record player into his room and plays a record....this is the 1930s so the record should be spinning at 78rpm. But it isn't...it's clearly playing at 33. See more »

In 1931, in Berlin, the English professor from Cambridge Brian Roberts (Michael York) comes to the boarding house where the promiscuous American performer and singer of the Cabaret Kit-Kat Club Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) lives. They befriend each other and soon Sally discovers that Brian is not attracted by women, but they have a love affair. When Sally meets the wealthy Baron Maximilian von Heune (Helmut Griem), both Sally and Brian are seduced by the baron. Meanwhile there is the ascension of the Nazi Party.
"Cabaret" is a movie too long with a shallow story, but nice musical show. Joel Grey steals the movie in the role of the Master of Ceremonies. But the background of Berlin in 1931 is awfully superficial and Bob Fosse is not brave enough to show the relationship among Sally, Brian and Max. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Cabaret"
