It takes a clever man to make money. It takes a genius to stay alive. Salomon ʻSallyʼ Sorowitsch is a master counterfeiter. He lives a roguish life of booze, women and cards. His luck runs out when he is arrested by the Nazis and sent to a concentration camp. There his talents are noticed and he is enrolled in Operation Bernard, a secret Nazi plan to destroy their enemiesʼ economies by flooding them with millions of forged banknotes. Sallyʼs life depends on his cooperation, but can this sit with his conscience? An Oscar winner with subtitles.
