I just returned from watching "Aimée und Jaguar" on its U.S. opening night, and am completely floored! This film is an intense, deeply moving, and extremely heart-wrenching depiction that will leave you reeling. Set in Nazi Germany (in Berlin), the stories tells the the unusual love story between a Nazi housewife (Aimée) and a Jewish underground female activist (Jaguar). Though the unforgettable passion comes through loud and clear the first time around, you can watch this film again and again, discovering something new every time. Brilliant acting on the part of Maria Schrader (Jaguar) and Juliane Köhler (Aimée)...truly genius performances. I LOVED this film, have got the book already and can't wait to own it on DVD. Definitely recommend it.
