Double Bill: The Counterfeiters & Breathing

Regent Street Cinema, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2UW

Part of the Austrian Film Season in partnership with Regent Street Cinema. In The Counterfeiters, Karl Markovics stars as Salomon Sorowitsch, known as the ‘king of the counterfeiters’. Thanks to his pragmatism and inexhaustible creativity, he enjoys the sunny side of life until he is arrested and transported to Sachsenhausen in 1944, where he is coerced into assisting a secret Nazi-operation. Markovics’ directorial debut Breathing is an eloquent and affectionate portrayal of an incarcerated teenager attempting to win parole by working at a local morgue. It is this job – of all things – that shows him the path back to life. The doublebill screening is followed by Q&A with Karl Markovics. 7pm - The Counterfeiters, Austria / Germany, 2007, 98 mins, German with English subtitles, directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky 9pm - Breathing, Austria, 2011, 93 mins, German with English subtitles, directed by Karl Markovics
