My Old Addiction

Aimee And Jaguar


(out of 5)

Excellent true-life drama about a bored, bourgeois housewife who falls in love with a dangerously adventurous Jewish spy in Nazi-occupied Berlin. Nicknaming themselves Aimee (the housewife) and Jaguar (the spy), the two women find themselves faced with many challenges, none of which are hard to figure out. Considering that Jaguar has the nerves to work for a Nazi newspaper while secretly going to lengths to procure exit visas for all those in need of them, the obstacles she encounters are mammoth. The cinematography is breathtaking, one of the most convincing recreation of period that I’ve ever seen on film.
