The Counterfeiters

Crime, Drama, History, War 1h 39m 2007

AroView: An Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Language film, this taut German thriller reconstructs the story of a Jewish fraudster forced to assist the Nazis by forging currency from within the confines of a concentration camp.

The compounded intrigue of the fact-based story and the German viewpoint, coupled with a uniform excellence across the production, keeps this entertaining throughout, with the more unsavoury aspects of Nazi oppression subtlely confined to the periphery. After DOWNFALL and THE LIVES OF OTHERS, this marks a confident new German wave that is turning the demons of its historical past into vital cinema that strongly connects with a wide international audience.
