Pop Culture Homework Assignment: Aimee and Jaguar

This is a German film about a lesbian couple, one of whom was Jewish, during World War II in Berlin.  It was a love story told in flashback, framed by present day scenes with two of the women who had been involved with Jaguar, the lovely vibrant Jewish woman who is the center of this story.

 

Aimee is a housewife whose husband is off at the front.  She is having an affair at the beginning of the film with a high-ranking officer.  She is introduced to Jaguar by her housekeeper/nanny/Jaguar’s current girlfriend.

 

The story is intense.  It was also really wonderfully filmed.  I enjoyed watching it.
