This week's recommendation

The Counterfeiters

Austria/Germany

2007, 99 mins.

Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky

The film was the 667th film screened by RFS on 2nd November 2010. 'The Counterfeiters' was the second from top ranked film of Season 48, it got an approval mark of 96% from those attending; from season 48 we have also already featured its top ranked film An Education).

Fight for what you believe in and face certain death – or co-operate with the enemy to save your own skin? Such is the dilemma at the heart of Stefan Ruzowitzky's compelling WWII drama about concentration camp Jews who are spared the gas chamber - in exchange for printing fake money for the Nazis. Known as Operation Bernhard, the Nazi scam, which set out to crush the British and US economies with counterfeit cash, succeeded in forging over £130 million before the end of the war.

Full film notes available in the Twickenham & Richmond Tribune here.

 

The film can be streamed from Amazon Prime and the discs are available from Amazon and other retailers.
