The movie concerns upon an investigation team in the Bletchley Park mansion with the aim to decipher communication keys of German submarines during second world war.
In the squad there are a wise nut-head (Dougray Scott) , an ugly and outcast girl (Kate Winslet) and another rush and beautiful (Saffron Burrows), and yet a clever investigator (Jeremy Norton).
The movie mingles mystery , action , a love story , thriller and it's quite amusing.
The flick is paced to nick of time , as they ought to figure out the clues by means of the Enigma , a mechanical device before that an Allied fleet was found by German subs .
One of the motivations behind shooting this picture was the indignation of many British World War 2 veterans over the movie U-571 , in which the capture of the Enigma was shown to be done by American navy soldiers .
Michael Apted direction is nice , he creates enough suspense , we're very interested in the events , besides being based on real deeds.
Final feature film with a full music score composed by John Barry , his music is fascinating likeness to "Dancing with wolves" and a lot of hits during his long career thirty years ago .
It was such a thrilling movie that had a great success in box office.
The film will appeal to emotions enthusiasts and suspense fans.
Rating: 7/10 above average .
