0. Sally’s first song and dance segment

Sally sang mein Herr when she performed alone for the first time in the 10th minute of the film. She didn’t know Brian very well at this time. But the lyrics of this song express Sally’s psychology at the end of the film.

Excerpt:

Bye-Bye, Mein Lieber Herr.

Goodbye, my dear sir.

Farewell, mein Lieber Herr.

Goodbye, my dear sir.

It was a fine affair,

It’s a beautiful relationship,

But now it’s over.

But it’s over.

And though I used to care,

Although I cared,

I need the open air.

But I need open space.

You’re better off without me,

You’d be better off without me,

Mein Herr.

My husband.

Don’t dab your eye, mein Herr,

Don’t wipe your tears, my husband,

Or wonder why, Mein Herr.

And don’t ask why, my husband,

I’ve always said that I was a rover.

I always say I’m a tramp,

You mustn’t knit your brow,

You shouldn’t frown,

You should have known by now

You should know

You’d every cause to doubt me,

You don’t have to doubt me,

Mein, Herr.

My husband.

The continent of Europe is so wide,

How vast the continent of Europe is,

Mein Herr.

My husband.

Not only up and down, but side to side,

In all directions,

Mein Herr.

My husband.

I couldn’t ever cross it if I tried,

I can’t cross it,

Mein Herr.

My husband.

1. Sally’s father

When Sally introduced her father to Brian, she said he “traveled all over the world to deal with major national events”, and then sighed. Brian said, “then you must rarely see him.”. Then Sally immediately stopped and looked at Brian in surprise. “What are you talking about? We often meet. He can’t stand to be separated from me and take me on vacation whenever he has time.” Later, when introducing his father at the count’s dinner table, he also said, “we have the best relationship. He can leave his work and rush to me at any time.”

However, from Sally’s meeting with his father, we can see that she not only washes away the a nun’s hand, but the makeup is completely different from that at ordinary times. At the same time, she has expressed extreme expectations. Everything shows that she and her father rarely meet. It is the precious meeting that led to Sally’s collapse after her father broke the appointment.

“Just ten words,” Sally said when she accused his father. She meant that when a telegram was sent, it was billed in ten words, and her father sent a telegram in one billing unit every time without saying more than one word.

2. Sally’s introduction

When the host of cabaret introduced Sally, the words were: so beautiful, so talented Later, when Sally cried because her father broke the appointment, Brian comforted her and said, “you’re a perfectly married girl, and beautiful, and talented.” And marvelous is also a word that Sally loves to use.

At the beginning, Sally said “I am a most strange and external person”. After Brian proposed, Sally also described Brian as “you are a most strange and extraordinary person”. After attending Fritz’s wedding, they lay down in the grass. Sally also described the upcoming baby as “it’ll be a most strange and extraordinary baby, won’t it?” but Brian didn’t answer and looked at the distance with worry.

3. Lya de putti

Sally said her favorite actor was lydipti, and her hairstyle was very similar to that of lydipti.

4. Miss Landauer’s first English class

In the first English class, Fritz secretly hid his patched sleeve in front of Miss Landauer, just as he hid his Jewish identity.

Miss Landauer pronounced “plegm” when she said the word “phlegm”. After being corrected by Brian, she asked in confusion, “since g doesn’t pronounce, why is it still there?” Brian couldn’t answer either. This is because the spelling of German words is very consistent with reading and writing, while English has many unexplainable phenomena. Others even coined a word to illustrate this:

Ghoti is a word created artificially to express the irregularity of English spelling. This word is similar to “fish” (English pronunciation:/ ˈ f ɪʃ/, The word “fish” has the same pronunciation and is considered another spelling of fish. The word “ghoti” includes three phonemes:

“GH”, pronounce / F / and “tough” (English pronunciation): / T ʌ F /), “enough” (English pronunciation:/ ɪˈ n ʌ F /) is the same as “GH”;

“O”, hair/ ɪ/ Sound, and “women” (English pronunciation:/ ˈ w ɪ m ɪ “O” in N /) is the same;

“Ti”, hair/ ʃ/ Sound, and “mention” (English pronunciation:/ ˈ m ɛ n ʃə N /), “action” (English pronunciation:/ ˈ æk ʃə N /) is the same as “Ti”.

When most English users see this word, they think its pronunciation is similar to “goaty” (English pronunciation:/ ˈɡ o ʊ t ɪ/) Therefore, this word is often used to explain the irregular relationship between English pronunciation and spelling, and is often used as evidence to support English spelling reform.

5. Miss Landauer’s consultation with Sally

Miss Landauer asked Sally about sex and love because she had a lot of sexual experience. When Miss Landauer wondered whether it was love or Fritz’s body, Sally answered without hesitation, “as long as you are happy, what does it matter?” Miss Landauer said Fritz proposed to her, but there were too many practical obstacles to overcome. Sally replied, “in that case, you’d better forget the whole thing.” This is consistent with what Sally later did to Brian.

6. Relationship with the count

As like as two peas, Sally first met the count and asked for a cigarette. He said the same thing as “Brian” when he first saw him. This is also in line with “man by man” in Sally’s first song.

After the camera cut to the count’s luxury car, Sally and the host began to sing a song praising money, money, money. Then the three went out together. The host and two girls were singing two ladies, telling the life of a man and two women. At first glance, you may think that the corresponding relationship in the song is Sally and two men. But in fact, the metaphors of the two girls are Brian and Sally.

7. Nazis

There are many song and dance segments in the film that are directly related to the Nazis. At the beginning, when the hotel owner was beaten by the Nazis, the picture of repeated switching is a silent dance in which the host constantly beats the girl. Later, when Landauer’s pet dog was killed, there was an unnamed dance imitating the Nazi posture. There is also a bridge between the host and the orangutan. Finally, the host said, “if you can see her through my eyes, she doesn’t look like a Jew at all.” Then Fritz pushes open the door of the metaphor cage to confess his Jewish identity.

When Brian and the count were having dinner in an open-air restaurant, a member of Hitler’s Youth League sang the song tomorrow bells to me, which resonated with many people. Then Brian asked the count, “do you still think you can control them?” After that, the count sent Brian back to his apartment, lost his temper with the driver, and then cancelled his plan to go to Africa on the pretext of “going to Argentina”. This was because the Nazis opposed homosexuality. The count noticed the wind and had to break off relations with Brian. Brian’s dislike of Nazis is also related to this to some extent.

Finale, the last song and dance segment, is almost exactly the same as willkommen, the first segment. Ironically, after so much happened around cabaret, the host still said the same line: “we have no trouble here.” At the beginning of the film, only one Nazi appeared in the concert hall and was expelled by the boss, but at the end, through the reflection of the wall, we can see that there are many Nazis on the seats.
