"Aimee and Jaguar" tells of the love which blossoms between two women, one married with four children and one a Jewess, in 1943/44 Berlin. Beautifully filmed and character-driven with splendid directing and superb performances, there's little to fault in this film as two women cleave to one another under the pall of war, the terror of bombing, and the absence of men. The only liability "A&J" has is the subject may not whet the interest of many.
