The Counterfeiters

February 28th, 2008 · No Comments

The Counterfeiters Writer/director, Stefan Ruzouwitzky masterfully crafts Adolf Burger’s book for the big screen in the Austrian Oscar winner. Ruzouwitzky avoids stereotypes in his portrayal of a group of Jews assigned to an elite division in Sachsenhausen to produce bankable English pound notes to finance the failing German war effort. Karl Markovics, as Salomon Sorowitsch, counterfeiter extrodinaire, August Diehl as the pragmatic moralist, and Devid Striesow as the Nazi commandant are key characters who lead an exceptional supporting cast through their ordeal.
