Extreamily well done; the acting was outstanding as was the direction . This is so realistic and buties itself in the needs of people ambivilant in committment yet fearful of death. A mesmerizing tlae of truth.

Great acting ,historicaly correct from the uniforms down to the undergarments,Suspensful,constantly on the edge of your seat.Nazis shown as they were acuratley.Entertainment beyond your immagination.

The Counterfeiters is a swift and suspenseful thriller, and perhaps a little too entertaining for its own good. Full Review
