Based on a true story, though that doesn't really make it all that compelling.

I was so busy trying to figure out what the hell was going on that there was just no way I was going to enjoy it.

A história (real) é interessante, mas o roteiro e a direção são enfadonhos. Grandes atuações em um filme que não causa impacto, apenas sono.

Startlingly poignant, Aimée and Jaguar is a story about dreams. If you have ever dreamed, don't miss it.

It's a breathtakingly beautiful film, never mawkish, never less than vibrantly real and never more affecting than when it explores the nature of a love that 'dare not speak its name', not in Nazi Germany

Its series of quiet but moving realizations of the utter ubiquity of the Nazi horror in every single aspect of life, even something as hidden as a sexual sub-culture, is powerful indeed.

It reminds us that the Holocaust continues to be a vital source for singular, inspirational stories.

Färberböck's engrossing debut conveys the devotion between Aimée (Juliane Köhler) and Felice Schragenheim (Maria Schrader).

Theatre director Max Färberböck could hardly have picked a more intense and heartbreaking story for his cinema debut.
