The Counterfeiters
starring: Karl Markovics, August Diehl, Devid Striesow, Martin Bramback, August Zirner

In Nazi-era Germany, Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch (Karl Markovics) is a master counterfeiter who is arrested and thrown into a concentration camp. Once his captors notice his unique skills, he's soon transported to better living conditions and asked to become a part of Operation Berhard, an extensive scheme by the Nazis to produce fake foreign currency. At first taking on the job with zeal, Sally has a crisis of conscience when his friend suggests that they try to undermine the German war effort rather than support it.
