Die Fälscher

The Counterfeiters

Stefan Ruzowitzky
In a world of racketeers, gigolos and floozies, Salomon Sorowitsch is the king of the counterfeiters. Thanks to his pragmatism and unexhaustible creativity, he enjoys the sunny side of life ? until he is arrested and transported to the concentration camp in Sachsenhausen in 1944. Once there, he advances to become a key figure in a largescale money counterfeiting operation. Sorowitsch concludes a pact with the devil and does what is demanded of him.
