Counterfeiters movie Customer Reviews
Most interesting stories to come out of World War II The film keeps all its characters human, and that is probably the greatest strength of The Counterfeiters.
By garry_jass (Kingston,Ontario,Canada)
||Terrific character study|
This is a tense, harrowing character study of a master forger and his battle to survive the holocaust. Its unflinching and the Nazi's depicted are fleshed out characters not just the basic madmen so usually depicted.

Winner of the Academy AwardŽ for Best Foreign Language Film, The Counterfeiters tells the true story of Salomon Sorowitsch (Karl Markovics), a swindler who made a name for himself as Berlin's "King of the Counterfeiters." However, his life of women and easy money is cut short when he's arrested and placed in a Nazi concentration camp. With the German army on the verge of bankruptcy, Sorowitsch makes a sobering deal with his captors: in exchange for a comfortable bed, good food and fair treatment, Sorowitsch, along with the other hand-picked specialists, must counterfeit bank notes to fund the Nazi War effort.
