How often do we let the experiences of our past affect those dear to us in the present?
Death in Love, the 2008 offering from Writer/Director Boaz Yakin, deals with this among other issues. Following the story of a Mother (Jacqueline Bisset) and her two sons, we see how her actions to survive a concentration camp during the Holocaust impact her relationship and raising of the children. The Eldest Son (Josh Lucas) responds by becoming Read the rest of this entry »
I made the switch to satellite TV service from satellitetv-hq.com three weeks ago, and it’s been a movie marathon ever since.
Death in Love was one movie that really had a profound effect on me. Death in Love is a psychological/romantic thriller about the impact that a Jewish woman’s experiences in the holocaust has on her sons. Jacqueline Bisset plays a Jewish woman who saved her own life by seducing a young doctor supervising medical experiments at a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. Many years later, the woman is married and living in New York City with two grown sons.
The sons, growing up with a mother who’s endured tremendous physical and psychological suffering in her life, have developed problems of their own. The younger son, played by Luke Haas, behaves compulsively and is locked in a co-dependent, relationship with his mother. The older son, played by Josh Lucas, works at a fraudulent modeling company making money off the aspirations of young fame-seekers. Lucas’ character drowns his emotional emptiness by engaging in affairs with multiple women. Just when he is about to lose all hope in finding meaning in life, Lucas’ co-worker, played by Adam Brody, helps him see the light.
This is a powerful movie that really reveals the emotional toll the Holocaust has on the children of survivors, something that is rarely talked about. It’s definitely worth a watch.
Death in Love is a movie about love, but not a gentle, romantic kind of love. This movie is one that is called, in the movie-going vernacular, a psychosexual thriller. It chronicles the torrid love affair of Jewish woman with a human-experimentation doctor conducting his studies and experimenting on human subjects at a Nazi concentration camp. Really. Sounds awful, doesn’t it? The effects of her relationship with this torture-doctor is passed on down through the ages to her sons, one of whom is her oldest played by Josh Lucas.
Lucas talks about the movie, the Read the rest of this entry »

This is about a Jewish woman whose life is saved because she is having a love affair with a Nazi at the camp. The Nazi is a doctor in charge of experiments.

Jacqueline Bisset got her wish to play a Jewish concentration camp survivor who has a romance with the camp’s Nazi doctor in Death in Love. The role was both horrifying and fascinating. Bisset says her character was monstrous. She says her character was difficult to play. I wanted to put raw emotion into the role, and I was attracted by how love could last forever. There was no escape.
