- Jadup und Boel Jadup and Boel /
- The mayor of a small town, Jadup is also the former lover of Boel. When Boel vanishes after being raped, Jadup moves to the head of the suspect list. The longer Boel remains scarce, the more the noose tightens around Jadup's neck. Originally censored and later banned by the GDR for being too controversial, the film was not released until 1988.

- Jakob der Lügner
- "Trapped in a Polish ghetto with thousands of other Jews facing starvation or deportation to the death camps, Jacob is detained one evening at the local Gestapo headquarters. Eavesdropping, he overhears a radio report about a nearby Russian victory. At first he is silent, but circumstances compel him to pass on the good news of hope. In order to be believed, he feigns access to a hidden, strictly forbidden radio. Quickly he becomes a one-man bulwark against despair, a reluctant hero, but a tragic figure still-- a man ultimately powerless to see or change the fate of his people."--Container.
