User Reviews

A description of facts, a story of men.

A nice portrait of the men involved in the study of the H-Bomb, the beginning of life lasting friendships amongst scientists in the middle of the century.

It's hard to find a movie that will touch such "hot" issues without loosing moderation: my feel is that this is a unique piece in its category.
