Trivia

In his last talk to Marian, Wilhelm Deutscher is quoting a poem by Heinrich Heine from the 1850s. Heine was one of the biggest German poets in the 19th century, one of the last German romantic writers, who was famous for using everyday language in his works. Cuase of his Jewish roots and his critical writings with political influences he was hated by anti-semitics and nationalists. See more »

Quotes

Veit Harlan: [discussing a movie scene] Aren't you worried, Herr Minister, that the audience would go on the side of Suess, when he says the line with such majesty?
Joseph Goebbels: Oh no, why? The jew must be a human being, not a monster. Otherwise everyone will think "What a cheap propaganda!"

The Third Reich is not to be trifled with.
14 May 2017 | by ulf-635-523367See all my reviews

German films about Nazism often face the evil eye from reviewers. No exception in this case. Director Oskar Roehler clarified; "Our aim was to enter the innermost sanctum of Nazi high society, and to portray how seducible artists were in the Third Reich". The Third Reich is not to be trifled with. Not now, when we finally have mapped and interpreted Nazism forever. This film delivers a different message and conclusion. De- demonizing the clowns and incarcerating the followers. Many have been outraged by the unabashed rough sex between Gudrun Landgrebe's and Tobias Moretti's characters. Not to mention the brilliant scene where the merrymaking German locals whines about the crumbs that the American liberators hands over to the surviving camp inmates. "Jud Süss" is played out as the war operetta it was. Blind, boisterous, excessive, orgastic, self-indulgent, greedy, in curling pastel colors. Much like Fassbinder's "Lili Marleen" or Szabó's "Mephisto". Nazism and its demons is still a moneymaker in the media world.
