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>

The Theory of Relativity is explained!
24 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This great documentary not only explains the various theories using animation & graphics; but it also does a fine job describing Einstein's life. I was especially struck with his solitariness throughout his adult years. His miserable domestic record was also noteworthy. Everything was well done & I rated it a 9.
