Jew Suss: Rise and Fall (German: Jud Süss – Film ohne Gewissen) is a 2010 German drama film directed by Oskar Roehler, dramatising the creation process of the 1940 antisemitic Nazi propaganda film Jud Süß. It was nominated for the Golden Bear at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.[1]

In Germany the film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and, mainly because of the controversial subject matter, received mixed reviews. Nevertheless the German critics lauded the actor Tobias Moretti in his role as Ferdinand Marian.[2] In 2011 cinematograph Carl-Friedrich Koschnick received the Austrian Romy award for cinematography.
