Aimée & Jaguar Review
By Christopher Null
There's no Aimée and no Jaguar in this oh-so-serious German production about a lesbian Jew named Felice (Maria Schrader) and the very German mother-of-four (Juliane Köhler) she falls in love with all during the Battle of Berlin. Through interminable repetition, we watch this unlikely romance develop while the Gestapo tracks down Felice and she plays nice with her underground lesbian films. Based on a true story, though that doesn't really make it all that compelling.
