Die Fälscher

Stefan Ruzowitzky Germany, 2007

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Counterfeiters

There's certainly a lot to like here, but I feel they missed the mark by not showing more of the lighter and humorous moments between the inmates and their "employers." When they do, it only serves to underline and make the tragedy more poignant. But that's nitpicking, this is a great, suspenseful drama with some wonderful performances.
