Storyline

In this notorious Nazi propaganda historical costume melodrama, a conniving, ambitious Jewish businessman, Süß Oppenheimer, snares a post as treasurer to the Duke of Wurttemburg by showering the corrupt duke with treasure and promises of even greater riches. As the Jew's schemes grow more elaborate and his actions more brazen, the dukedom nearly erupts into civil war. Persuaded by the Jew, the Duke all but scuttles the constitution and alienates the assembly by lifting the local ban on Jews in Stuttgart. In a final outrage, the Jew rapes a wholesome German girl and tortures her father and fiancée. When the Duke succumbs to a sudden heart attack, the assembly of Elders try the Jew and sentence him to death for having "carnal knowledge of a Christian woman".

It would of been a great film except...
25 November 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I gave this film a low mark because it is a classic of Evil! It is forbidden in Germany to be viewed by the general audiences! There is a reason why. It is a classic of Evil! Everything about it was well done in those times, costumes, scenography, editing. It was so well done that it could be compared to the American propaganda films done during those times. But it has Evil inside itself! And that makes it so belonging to the bunker!

There was a film made in 2010 about making of Jew Suss and specially about what happened to Ferdinand Marian the principal actor in this film. It so very interesting story that it should be explored further.

Since it is so hard to obtain this film to watch, I would you still try to obtain it and watch it. You would be pleasantly surprised in how well it was made but with a wrong message in it.
