A damned intriguing thriller that asks more questions than it answers and leaves you dazed and upset and also a little inspired...

The framing sequence is a bit glib but the camp scenes are vividly realized...

The image and sound, like the hearty collection of extras, are fit for an Oscar-winner.

The Counterfeiters tells a compelling story without fanfare or standard dramatic conventions, and that's saying something.
