| Very interesting and brings some light into a little known issue
Watching this movie was a very gripping experience. I think the best part was the actors' performance (especially of the accused director Vait Harlan, the prosecutor, the judge and of course of the Goebbels-actor). There are three plots inter-winded together: scenes from the movie (in the year 1940), the happenings in the background of the movie development (1939 - 1943) and the Cort proceedings (in 1949). All three of them were very well filled with information, details from the time and the regime and of course very suspenseful authenticity. Now that it is not possible and definitely not easy for everyone to get the original movie, I think this is a very good opportunity to get an insight in the propaganda movies of the Nazi-time. The special topic in "Jud Süß - Ein Film als Verbrechen?" is the moral issue and the question of the responsibility for one's action. What gave me most initiation for thinking was the problem with art and political statement. Can you do art without being political, or not? And which of these two is more dangerous.

If you liked "The Downfall" you will enjoy this movie. Actually as much an authentic documentary as an entertaining film.
