Trivia

At the time of the movie's release a new edition of the original book "Ich war Jud Süß" by Prof. Friedrich Knilli came out with a new prologue referring Roehler's movie. In that part Knilli complained about the inaccuracies in recreating of several real life events from his book and his further research. He said that the this fictional description in this movie helps creating legends about "Jud Süß (1940)". See more »

Goofs

Veit Harlan said, that he would never do a propaganda movie. Actually he already did propaganda movies before "Jud Suess". In 1937 he did "Der Herrscher", that was containing elements from NS-propaganda. Perhaps Harlan said that, to fool the actors to gain them for his movie. See more »

Quotes

Joseph Goebbels: Krauss, I think, your idea, to play all the jewish minor roles, is a brilliant idea.
Werner Krauss: But I through, you're against double roles.
Joseph Goebbels: That's right, I sure am. But I'm also against harping on about principles.
[to Harlan]
Joseph Goebbels: Because this, my dear Harlan, is a perfect oppertunity to show, that all jewish characters and temperaments are originally from the same source.

A fascinating film
24 October 2010 | by discount1957See all my reviews

This is a fascinating and gripping film. I heard it was discredited at the Berlin Film Festival, but I cannot understand why. Whoever says it's a bad movie, is some sour critic with a bad taste, and when these are together, they infect one another mutually with their moods (or they think it chic to have this view). Nobody should avoid this film only because of their view of it. Nobody but you yourself knows your taste, and the way in which something enters your mind in the strongest way.

And nobody really knows the details that happened to Ferdinand Marian, the exact words that were said, the exact situations. A historical piece like this is never absolutely correct,the real proceedings are lost to us, and therefore different angles of view are allowed, and should be seen as such. And this one was a very fascinating interpretation, that held me captive until the end. This means especially the view on Goebbels, and I'll never forget the color that Moritz Bleibtreu gave him.
