Has anyone seen this movie made by the austrian Erwin Wagenhofer?

'Let's make Money'

Plot synopsis:
Let's make money is a very well made documentary which focuses on how money is made and distributed by investors, corporations and the rich elite through the global financial system.
Most of us don't know, where their money is. How ever, one thing is for certain. It 's is not in the bank, to which we entrusted it. The bank and our money is already a part of the cycle of the global money market.

As yet I don´t even know if the film will go around the world and will be translated into English!

And a memorable and rather frightful quote:
'The best time to buy is when there is blood on the streets.'
Mark Mobius
(President of Templeton Emerging Markets)

After We Feed the World, the spectacular documentary about our food production, the film-maker Erwin Wagenhofer presents us with Let's Make Money a new documentary, which follows the tracks of our money through the worldwide finance system and points out the consequences of our greed. Wagenhofer looks behind the scenes of the colourful backdrop of banks and insurance companies. What does our pension provision have to do with the property blow-up in Spain? We don't have to buy a home there in order to be involved. As soon as we open an account, we're part of the world-wide finance market - whether we want it or not. The bank enters our account into the global money circuit. Possibly banks or pension funds lend our money to speculators. We customers have no idea where our debtor lives and what he does to pay our interest fees. Most of us aren't even interested, because we like to follow the call of the banks: "Let your money work!" But money can't work. Only people, animals or machines can work.
