What do you experts think about Benedict Neuenfels' cinematography in The Counterfeiters? I don't think I've ever seen a Holocaust film that has used this visual style before - grainy, indie, choppy, docu-drama look. Is there a name for it?

I enjoyed the film very much. The films that have made out of Austria have been unusual, sophisticated, and dark, i.e. Michael Haneke and now Ruzowitzky. There was always an underlying sense of irony and dark humor throughout the film, and the moral issues were dealt in a more sophisticated, rather than sentimental way.

You should try Ulrich Seidl, he makes very good films, especially his latest one Import/Export.
