Title: The Counterfeiters/Die Fälscher (Stefan Ruzowitzky, 2006)
Post by: Inspector Tanzi on 08 May 2008 - 20:13
I watched this this evening and enjoyed it.

Salomon Sorowitsch is a counterfeiter who is caught and sent to Mauthausen concentration camp, when some of the Nazi's who are high up in the regime realise who they have he is shipped out to Sachsenhausen.

He and a bunch of other Jewish prisoners have to make fake U.S. dollars and English pounds, failure could mean only one thing...death.

I thought the film was good and it kept me watching, it slowed down a bit just before the hour but soon picked up again, definately worth a watch.
