The Counterfeiters Solarmovie review

The movie The Counterfeiters stirred up a whole wave of experiences and different emotions in me. This film was the only film in Stefan Ruzowitzky's work that I had not watched and having watched just recently I didn’t regret leaving such a cool project for the last time. The film revolutionized the Crime genre by bringing back the audience's interest in the idea.
