The Counterfeiters

The winner for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars, this fact-based crime drama introduces us to a little-known scheme the Nazis dreamed up to counterfeit millions in foreign currency. Salomon Sorowitsch (Karl Markovics) is a con man and a Jew, double doomed to the concentration camps of World War II. But he finds odd, momentary salvation when the Nazis realize they need his unique talents as a counterfeiter. Writer/director Stefan Ruzowitzky could have injected a little more moral ambiguity into this intriguing tale, but he's rescued largely by his fine leading man. In English, German, Russian and Hebrew with English subtitles. 98 minutes R.
