The summary of this plot holds true today for 2019 and beyond. The fact that the original summary noted the scientist as psychotic and out for revenge speaks to a long standing bias against the truth in history. There is no psychosis or revenge in this story. Listen and learn from history.

I was certain I'd be bored out of my skull when I sat down to watch this film, upon the recommendation of a former girlfriend.
Who would've thought a metaphysical conversation captured on film could be so spellbinding.The subject deals with our place in the universe, and it is explored from several angles, all of which will send your mind swirling to higher and higher realms. No small part of the film's success is the chemistry between Liv Ullman, Sam Waterston and John Heard, one of our most underrated actors.
Add to this the stunning backdrop of Mont St. Michel, which in startling counterpoint, complements the wide-ranging subject matter, and you have one hell of an entertaining movie on your hands.
