Summary: A fictionalized account of a Nazi plan to forge English money in order to destabilize their economy during WWII (Operation Bernhard): the largest counterfeiting operation in history! It takes place mostly in a concentration camp where the Jewish counterfeiters live relatively securely as long as they do this work for/with the Nazis.
I studied German in high school and I have always been interested in German-language films. When my dad decided that I needed to see This Is Spinal Tap (did you know dozens of people spontaneously combust every year?), I also decided that we should rent this.
I mostly enjoyed it and while I haven't seen any of its competition for the Oscar, I think it deserved it. I would recommend this for people who are interested in WWII for a different perspective and/or those who like foreign language films.
