Meeting Description: Michigan Theater - The Counterfeiters

Slick, exciting, emotionally trenchant - well done all around." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe

Academy Award Winner: Best Foreign Film. The true story of the largest counterfeiting operation in history, set up by the Nazis in 1936. Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch is the king of counterfeiters. He lives a mischievous life of cards, booze, and women in Berlin during the Nazi-era. Suddenly his luck runs dry when he's arrested by Superintendent Friedrich Herzog and immediately thrown into a concentration camp. Hand-picked for his unique skill, Salomon and a group of professionals are forced to produce fake foreign currency under the program Operation Berhard. Faced with a moral dilemma, Salomon must decide whether his actions, which could prolong the war and risk the lives of fellow prisoners, are ultimately the right ones. Rated R. 98 minutes. German with subtitles.
