<i>Aimee and Jaguar</i>

Los Angeles film critic Kenneth Turan reviews the German movie Aimee and Jaguar. It's based on a bestseller that tells the true love story of two women during the Second World War. One woman, a Jewish poet, masquerades as an Aryan to work at a Nazi paper and passes information to the underground. Her lover is a conventional German wife, whose philandering husband is fighting on the front. Turan says the movie captures the complexity of the characters and the terror of the times.
