Foreign trailer for Jew Suss: Rise and Fall.
A controversial dramatization that has sharply divided critics and audiences, Jew Suss: Rise and Fall recounts the making of the most nefarious Nazi propaganda film, and the ruinous fate of its unwitting lead actor. German cinema s leading man Ferdinand Marian (a trenchant Tobias Moretti) is offered the starring role in a bastardized adaptation of the pro-Semitic novel Jud S . Worried about being typecast as a Jew, he is initially reluctant to take the part but eventually relents to pressure and then outright blackmail by Hitler s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels (played with scene-stealing ferocity by Moritz Bleibtreu). Marian s charismatic performance produces a box office smash, unleashing anti-Semitic fervor across Europe and the awful weight of history upon his shoulders.
