Review

Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch is the king of counterfeiters and lives a sweet life of cards, booze and women. Eventually Salomon's luck runs out when he's arrested and thrown into a Nazi concentration camp, but it's not long before his exceptional skills are spotted and he is coerced into a counterfeit operation on a gargantuan scale; a plan to help finance the war effort and flood the British and American economies with fake currency. For the first time in his life Salomon finds himself in a moral dilemma, his own security and comfort over the lives of others. Based on real events "The Counterfeiters" is a powerful, beautifully made and almost unbearably tense tale that more than justified its best foreign film Oscar.
