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>

Superb film on the life and contributions of Einstein.
10 May 2005 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

I happen to be a scientist, and have always been an admirer of Albert Einstein, but I really knew little about him outside his contributions in Special Relativity and General Relativity, plus of course his most famous equation, E=Mcc. This film is mostly a biography, and it includes explanations that everyone can understand of his main discoveries. A German actor, Andrew Sachs, plays Albert Einstein, and in full makeup looks remarkably like him. The two hour NOVA film, now in two parts on DVD, includes still photos of Einstein as a child, as a student, as a young man, and at various stages through his adult life. The filming often cuts to the actor, who either muses about various events in his life, or reads from old letters and journals, as if Einstein himself were looking back upon his life and commenting. All in all a superb film, and one that can be appreciated by scientists and non-scientists alike. Einstein was a remarkable man, and his contributions opened up the study and understanding of our universe like no one had before him. It makes one stop to think, where would we be if he hadn't come along?
