Is this how we confront evil in 2007, not by documenting it faithfully or fighting it openly, but instead by blaming its victims for their victimhood?

THE COUNTERFEITERS is an accurate procedural, just not a very engrossing or moving film.

The trouble is that the storytelling and filmmaking are routine (surely faux-documentary handheld camerawork is the most overused cliche in modern movies), even when the human drama is not.

While The Counterfeiters does indeed contain a good story, it is by no means a good film.

The Counterfeiters joins that class of films like Tsotsi and The Sea Inside that are just good enough to look like they matter

Ruzowitzky's faux-doc shaky-cam zooms are less about the banality of evil than the inappropriateness of style.

Mainly interesting for its premise and noteworthy for the main performance. [Not] nearly as deserving of accolades as many of the foreign language films that were ignored by the Academy.

Only WWII junkies will find much of anything worth embracing here.
