Life is a Cabaret

For anyone thinking about watching this, I was most likely in your shoes. Assuming this was just a musical (it kind of is - and although I knew the setting and some other little bits) however it is so much better and more than just that. The plot and darkness to it was rather moving at times; knowing that this wonderful city of Berlin would be brought so low. Hearing characters try to live in this darkening cityscape made me stop and really watch. I thought those elements would be very much background however it really is woven through the foreground of the film.
Give it a go. And this is coming from someone who really doesn't like musicals.
