I recommend!
9 March 2014 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I read the one scathing review and don't get that at all. I am a Probability and Statistics Professor who loves all history, even fictionalized accounts. I found the movie delightful. It made me want to research the lives of Gauss and Humboldt. It was a beautiful film and it made me want more. That is what I always want for my students! Anyone would see this as a sweet story of contemporaries juxtaposed by birth and passion. Getting a taste of the math/science in such a stunning way, visually... I would think it would make some appreciate the worlds of maths and science, and motivate some to look deeper. Lovely movie! (Sorry, angry German reviewer.)
