Storyline

A scientist who swore off playing chess after a nervous breakdown as a boy wunderkind, creates an undefeated chess program. But the Russian world champ beats Tommy Rosemund's masterwork in a televised match. So the West German mathematician becomes a top chess pro himself, which the West German media boast will prove the superiority of Germany and democracy. The jowly, white-faced Rosemund believes that the entire Red Communist bloc is out to stop him from vanquishing their atheist pretty boy, Stefan Koruga, to become the next Bobby Fischer and a symbol that ruthless capitalism is preferable to socialism.

brilliant work on Chess starring Bruno Ganz
26 June 2000 | by (Whittier, California) – See all my reviews

This film presents elements of the lives of chess world champions Wilhelm Steinitz and Bobby Fischer. Bruno Ganz is perfect in the role. The scene I'll not forget anytime soon is when the future chess genius, shown as a boy, has his chessboard and pieces taken away by his parents, who are concerned that he is obsessed. Staring at the floor, his sisters teases him: "Ha ha, mummy took your board away, you can't play chess anymore." He replies: "I don't need a board!"
