Aimee & Jaguar
Directed by Max Färberböck
In 1943, while the Allies are bombing Berlin and the Gestapo is purging the capital of Jews, a dangerous love affair blossoms between two women. One of them, Lilly Wust, married and the mother of four sons, enjoys the privileges of her stature as an exemplar of Nazi motherhood. For her, this affair will be the most decisive experience of her life. For the other woman, Felice Schragenheim, a Jewess and member of the underground, their love fuels her with the hope that she will survive. A half-century later, Lilly Wust told her incredible story to writer Erica Fischer, and the book, AIMÉE & JAGUAR, first published in 1994 immediately became a bestseller.

Cast: Maria Schrader, Johanna Wokalek, Heike Makatsch, Juliane Kohler
the story doesn't build itself to the deep love, dives in way fast, the characters are interesting, but staccato. Doesn't carry me all the way
Felice’s character is hypnotizing, love the storyline, loved her style too!
wonderful cast_love Maria Schrader_no idea why she would fall in love with Johanna Wokalek_ but life's like that_horrible time for sure_i hate Nazis then and now_i love Lilly in mens clothing choking on a cigarette & Felice is insanely courageous
