Plot and Synopsis of ‘Jaguar’
Jaguar set in 1960s Spain when the country acted as a haven for hundreds of Nazis fleeing the country during World War II. In Spain, the Nazis rebuilt their life but disguised their faces behind a crimson cloak, supposedly for their safety. However, there is a subset of people who will never forget their crimes or their identities. They made it their life’s purpose to avenge themselves for the crimes they committed. Isabel Garrido is one of them.
Jaguar is based on Isabel Garrido’s tragic background as a young lady who escaped the Mauthausen concentration camp. The Nazis killed his entire family during the war. Her recollections of her father and brother regularly lead her to revisit the horrors of the Holocaust and her tormentor, hierarch Bachmann.
Even though she is back, Isabel cannot and is reluctant to forget. So she is looking for Bachmann: Spain has become a haven for hundreds of Nazis with Francisco Franco in charge. It is the product of Operation Odessa, a group that advocates for the Nazis’ escape from Europe via Spain and Italy, with the Vatican’s backing.
The Church preferred the Third Reich over Communism, and many Ustasha hierarchs and fascists can go to South America via fraudulent passports and secret diplomatic routes or by assuming a new identity.
The military dictatorship governs with terror in Caudillo’s Spain, and the only justice accessible to these individuals, who have subsequently grown into respectable figures, is death. When Isabel joins the squad of individuals who refuse to go to court and resort to unorthodox ways to seek down and murder the Third Reich’s high-ranking commanders, she is given the codename Jaguar.
Cast and Creators
The primary cast is led by Blanca Suárez, who plays Isabel Garrido AKA Jaguar. Otto Bachmann is played by Stefan Weinert, Marsé is played by Francesc Garrido, Castro is played by Oscar Casas, Franz Ziereis is played by Lorenz Christian Köhler, Sordo is played by Adrián Lastra, and Lucena is played by Iván Marcos.
Jaguar was developed by Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira, the writers of The Switchboard Girls. The sequence is described by Campos as “my most personal effort in recent years” since it is capable of mixing motion and emotion, with not just chases, gunshots, and executions but also difficult ethical judgments. According to Neira in the manufacturing notes, Jaguar is “fantasy yet influenced by truth.”
