Die Falscher – The Counterfeiters

If you’re only going to see one foreign movie this year, you’re an idiot. See more. Make one them this one: “The Counterfeiters. It won an Oscar, but you probably didn’t know because you were too busy laughing at Stewart making jokes about Angelina Jolie’s many children.

Die Falscher Cover

Die Falscher is a story of Salomon Sorowitsch, the Jewish king of counterfeiting, the greatest money/document faker in the world, who was put into a concentration camp. Thanks to his incredible talent, one of the Nazi officers (ironically, the one who arrested him for his crimes) assembled a team of artists to make counterfeit copies of british and american currencies, in what was the biggest counterfeiting operation in the world. This movie rocks. It’s not gruesome (much) it has some smart humour, but mostly it’s a brilliant drama, about the dilemma of surviving, or dying for a greater cause. See it. NOW!

    Well well well. I’m glad that someone has actually noticed this film. I watched way back before Christmas, but it is a very good film. It’s powerful and striking, and at some points makes you think – what would you do if you were put into that position?

    And as the way films go, that’s a good film for me… if it makes you think and assess your own feelings.

    P.S. Hey man, how are you? Haven’t spoken to you for ages!

    Yeah, my favourite quote is probably “Why earn money making art? It’s easier to earn money making money”.

    P.S. I’m pretty good, and yourself? I’m ass-deep in alligators when it comes to schoolwork though, ton of stuff to do.

    MI3? Are you kidding? The ending of that movie was the stupidest shit I ever heard uttered on a movie set! “Impossible Mission Force”. Are you fucking kidding me? You have paid writers, and that’s the best they can do?

    @ teengle at work – Pay for the movies you want to watch, that’s how they get money to make more. I’m talking mainly about independent films (especially those ones!).

    @ happyatom – Yeah I’ve got a bit of uni work to be getting on with. Plus I’m working on bringing my blog back to life. 😛

    My favorite quote is, “you touch me and I’ll slit your throat.” It shows that even kappo were people and had fears and desires to end the war just like the jews.
