Who cares about historical facts?
6 November 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I'm big Einstein fan, so why not love the movie which tells his story. I have read lot's of Albert, so I don't even want to watch again some historical document(film) of him. I seriously think that this movie tells me about Einsteins character more than 10 books, because I see his attitude to world has been very similarly with this movie character.

The movie have all elements to be loved in a good movie, romance, science, comedy and crazy inventions made by lovely and clever personality from our close history. Even Marie Curie can't resist his authentic power to be that little rock on the seashore, in big Universum.

And peoples who hate this one, please, go back to watch "The fast and the furious". I know from past that they-kind are more interested about motors than brain acceleration...
