One day, he's offered the starring role in the new Nazi Film Department's anti-Semitic production, an adaptation of the novel Jew Suess. The part wouldmake him a star. Marian turns it down but finally gives in to Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels' (Moritz Bleibtreu) unrelenting pressure and even worse, his charm. The actor unwittingly plays into the Nazis' plans and his attempt to give the film's Jewish protagonist a human touch makes the film the most successful propaganda film ever made A heartwrenching story about the seductiveness - and price - of evil"--Container.
