A well acted, sensual tale of lesbian romance set against the tumultuous setting of WWII and the Holocaust.

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

Startlingly poignant, Aimée and Jaguar is a story about dreams. If you have ever dreamed, don't miss it.
August 14, 2007
Powerful and touching. Good touching.
| Original Score: 4/5

A história (real) é interessante, mas o roteiro e a direção são enfadonhos. Grandes atuações em um filme que não causa impacto, apenas sono.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

November 30, 2002
...a rich melange of tumultous and sensual events. The story, acting, direction, set design and costuming fluidly combine to give a passionate portrait of living and loving on the edge of despair in a place and time where there was no tomorrow.

A sophisticated and beautiful feature debut from German television director Max Färberböck.
June 5, 2002
While at times a bit too slow, especially during a handful of love scenes that verge on being gratuitous, the strength of the two lead actresses as desperate, devoted lovers is enough to engage audiences throughout the entire pic.

Certainly this is great dramatic fodder, and first-time feature film director Max Farberbock has given a terrific visual style, resonance, sense of hope and power to the material.

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

August 9, 2001
Watching Aimee and Jaguar is like having your eyes anxiously affixed on a cracked mirror on the wall, delicately held together, yet on the brink of violently shattering to the ground.
August 9, 2001
The film ... isn't up to the complexities the story raises, but it's a consistently engrossing piece of work.
July 3, 2001
Rewarding viewing, evocatively re-creating a narrative milieu and war-time Berlin rarely seen on screen.

May 3, 2001
With a solid support cast, this is always an engaging and moving drama.
February 14, 2001
This is more than a same-sex success, it's a most affecting, most sensual on-screen love affair, period.

February 14, 2001
In the midst of all the chaos of war, how people chose to live and how they survived emotionally is conveyed well and without the usual cliches.
January 1, 2000
There is surprisingly little emotional amplitude.
