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.

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

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

...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.

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.

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.

The film ... isn't up to the complexities the story raises, but it's a consistently engrossing piece of work.

Rewarding viewing, evocatively re-creating a narrative milieu and war-time Berlin rarely seen on screen.

This is more than a same-sex success, it's a most affecting, most sensual on-screen love affair, period.

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.

There is surprisingly little emotional amplitude.
