Mein Herr



So it turns out that my parents have never seen Cabaret. "NEVER SEEN CABARET??" I said, aghast. "But it's a classic!" So I sat them down last night and we watched it together.

Today we're going to see Up.

How weird, Janine, I'm having a very Cabaret moment at the moment, after watching the BBC4 documentary about it (did you see that?). Have had little story threads about Weimar-era Berlin floating around in my head ever since.

Oh yes - I saw that the other night. It was really interesting! It gave a lot of useful context to the gorillia-suit song for a start.

Should I mention I've never seen Cabaret?

How did the showing of Up go?

I thought Up was lovely, Madelynne! I've never seen a 3D film before and was very impressed. Plus it was funny and sweet and had talking dogs in it.
