It takes a clever man to make money, it takes a genius to stay alive
I just don't fit in with these people...fo
This film won the Best Foreign Language Oscar in 2008. Set during World War II, it is the tale of the world's best forger, a Jew of Russian extraction. He is arrested by the Nazis and interned, but as the war started going against Germany, they came up with a plan... They decided to weaken the US and British economies by flooding the market with fake currency. The Russian Jew was just the man to make the money. Offered a take-it-or-die deal, he set to work with a hand-picked team, producing perfect forgeries. However not everyone on his team was happy with the moral problem: by helping the Nazis, they were delaying their own freedom. In German language with English subtitles.
