A heartbreaking love story set against war torn Berlin.
This is a haunting documentary about Lilly Wust, an "Aryan" hausfrau, and her romance with Felice Schragenheim, a Jew living underground. The viewer of this documentary will be drawn to the protagonists of this romantic, yet true, tale of courage, passion, and everlasting love. The film is composed of interviews with Lilly (who lives in Berlin today) and various people who knew Felice. The full story is told in Erica Fischer's book, Aimee and Jaguar. Be ready to cry, because this story will leave you reeling for days. P.S. The movie version of this story, Aimee and Jaguar, has been made, and recently opened the Berlin Film Festival this past February. (I hope that it will be showing in the US
