The Counterfeiters shares a lot of the hang-ups of recent German movies: the difficulties of complicity, the perils of bravery, the redeeming power of art. By the end, Sally has come round from his earlier assertion that faking money is better than making it by selling his paintings. This kind of Ďart: good, authority: badí message, shared with The Lives of Others, forms a rather banal conclusion to such a thoughtful film. Still, The Counterfeiters is redeemed by whatís gone before.
