Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Joel Grey
1931 Berlin and the last years of the Weimar Republic. Enter Brian Roberts (York), a shy English academic, who finds rooms at the same boarding house as Sally Bowles (Minnelli), an American burlesque performer. Their highly charged and ambiguous affair is the driving force of the film’s narrative but the decadent song-and-dance of the Kit Kat club is at its heart. And all the while, the shadows cast by the Nazis grow ever longer. Fosse at his best – a thoroughly grown-up, froth-free musical.
