Cabaret: Your views
Liza Minnelli in the lead role as nightclub singer, Sally Bowles
Cabaret celebrates its 30th anniversary this year
Cabaret, starring Liza Minnelli as an American nightclub singer in Berlin, was first released in 1972 and went on to win eight Oscars.

The British Film Institute has now re-released the film to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

"It is a musical, romance, drama and social commentary rolled into one. It is dark, yet vibrant. It is a wonderful film with a breathtaking score. I am not surprised it won eight Oscars," wrote the BBC's Leigh Mytton.

But what do you think?

Is the film's impact still strong after 30 years? Is it Liza Minnelli's greatest performance?

Have your say

The production values of this film - music, lighting, editing, and set design are all first class. Added to this, the wondeful Oscar-winning songs and the performance of Liza Minnelli make this one of the best films of the last century. Everyone should see this on the big screen at least once in their lives.

The film has an eerie timeliness now, what with a rising sea of intolerance and fear sweeping the world. I still remember the scene of a golden-haired Hitler Youth singing that song about "tomorrow belongs to us." Scary.
Robert del Valle, USA
