In Darkness Review


Excellent
Based on the true story of Polish Jews who hid in the sewers of Lvov for 14 months, this film can't help but grip us tightly for nearly two and a half hours. Fortunately, the filmmakers deepen the characters and situations beyond movie conventions.

Poldek (Wirckiewicz) works in the Lvov sewers with his young sidekick Szczepek (Skonieczny). When the Nazis begin to systematically clear out the Jewish ghetto, either murdering them or shipping them off to the camps, a handful of Jews escape into the sewers, where Poldek and Szczepek agree to help them for a price. But as the months go on, Poldek becomes increasingly involved in their lives, causing stress with his wife (Preis) back home and making him very nervous around his soldier pal Bortnik (Zurawski).

Rosenstrasse Review


Very Good
In the opening scenes of Rosenstrasse, a Jewish woman named Ruth (Jutta Lampe) living in contemporary New York is mourning the loss of her husband by means of strict Jewish customs. Her children, who have come for the funeral, do not understand why she is doing this, since her husband was German. What's more, she seems more hostile than usual and refuses to talk much about anything, including her past.

Ruth's daughter Hannah (Maria Schrader) knows that her mother was in Berlin during World War II but she wants to know more. So, pursuing a tip from her Aunt, she travels to Berlin to track down an elderly woman named Lena (Doris Schade) who took Ruth (Svea Lohde) in when her mother was one of the thousands of Jews interned during the war.

Aimée & Jaguar Review


OK
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.

AimÉe & Jaguar Review


OK

Maybe I'm just thick, but the stirring and tragic lesbians-under-the-Third-Reich romantic tear-jerker "Aimée and Jaguar" seemed awfully vague to me about some important points.

For instance, it wasn't until I read the press kit that I realized one of the lovers -- pet name Jaguar, real name Felice, played by Maria Schrader -- was a part of the Jewish underground.

I knew she was Jewish, obviously. That's a large part of this based-on-fact film. It's clear that she's very secretive toward Aimée -- real name Lilly, played by Juliane Kohler -- the Nazi officer's housewife whom she befriended, seduced and fell in love with.
