Storyline

A biographical study of Albert Einstein, with not only an analysis of his place in modern physics and in our understanding of the universe, but an analysis (through his and his wife's letters) of Einstein as a person. Never comfortable with human inter-relationships, he married first for love and the spoken intent to make his wife a part of his intellectual life. But responsibilites of family life and a child overcame him. Work in theoretical physics moved his wife and son to a secondary role, and a later love affair with his cousin completed the estrangement. Part of the film is taken from archival material, part is a recreation with Einstein's thoughts presented by an actor. Animations explain basics of his theory of relativity, mass-energy equivalence, and the nature of light. Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>

Excellent biography
5 October 2001 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

In a brief time (which is, of course, relative), we learn a great deal about a modern genius, the man that TIME magazine called the "Man of the Century."

The narrations, the impersonation of Einstein, and the illustrations are all very well done. What I find particularly enlightening and touching is a short sequence I use in teaching a class on study skills aimed at making students more likely to succeed in college. Einstein explains why he was what others considered a genius. He very simply points out that he kept the mind of a child and asked the simplest questions.

What is space? What is time? Why is the grass green? Why is the sky blue? These are questions children ask. Adults don't bother with such questions either because they think the questions are silly or because they think they know the answer or because they think there are no answers. Yet childlike minds such as Einstein's work on such questions. All human beings could use their minds to such purposes instead of for greed, killing, and destruction.

The world might be a better place if people used childlike qualities to seek enlightenment rather than mundane dreck.
