Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Based on a real-life Nazi operation, the film is a tense drama with performances that elevate the movie to the front rank of films set in concentration camps.
- Adam Bernstein, Washington Post, Thursday, March 20, 2008
Fresh: Is this the last word on the Holocaust? No. But nothing is. And nothing ever should be.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, March 14, 2008
Rotten: THE COUNTERFEITERS is an accurate procedural, just not a very engrossing or moving film.
- Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
A dark, gripping true story that works as a challenging moral exercise on the terrible choices that some were forced to make in order to survive the horrors of the Holocaust. An absorbing film that deserves even more credit for making us sympathize with a not-very-likable anti-hero.
