Second, I noticed in the "Cabaret" credits that the film was based on the stories of Christopher Isherwood.
Third, I bought the film "Christopher and His Kind."
Then, fourth and finally, I bought the memoir by the same name.
So much of Weimar Germany came together for me for the first time between the memoir and the two films.
Now I get it!
The memoir "Christopher and His Kind" has made me acquainted with other literary figures of his time in Berlin.
With future readings and films, I am on my way to understanding Germany between the two World Wars.
I found this book to be a perspective I had never heard before, and it turned me on to other works by Isherwood. I'm still working through them, but his unique point of view appeals to me. He offers a fresh view on an oft-written about subject, ie Nazi Germany. His balances explicit detail and taste perfectly.
