As Cabaret takes place from 1929-1930, a time when Berlin, in the midst of a Post-World War I economic depression, is transitioning from a center of underground, avant-garde cultural epicenter to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party. The Cabaret alternatively becomes a metaphor for the German economy, which adds personality to the film as well as the background dancers beaming off sordid behavior. Ultimately the film engages its audience in its clever suspenseful story line. Fosse actively employs various techniques exclusive to the motion picture medium, which are very effective in conveying the themes of Goodbye to Berlin. Such themes as the growing influence of Nazism, the decadence and subsequent deterioration of Berlin, and the evil of anti-Semitism are reinforced in Cabaret through the use of creative editing, lighting, and the general mis-en-scene.
