Storyline

During the heart of World War II, in March of 1943, cryptoanalysts at Britain's code-breaking center have discovered to their horror that Nazi U-boats have changed their Enigma Code. Authorities enlist the help of a brilliant young man named Tom Jericho to help them break the code again. The possibility of a spy within the British code-breakers' ranks looms and Tom's love, Claire, has disappeared. To solve the mysteries, Tom recruits Claire's best friend, Hester Wallace. In investigating Claire's personal life, the pair discovers personal and international betrayals. Written by Anna <dimenxia@yahoo.com>

Good actors and story - too many subplots
17 May 2004 | by pattacakesSee all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie one day when my huge list of digital cable movies didn't seem to offer me much (what else is new!). I like Kate Winslet & Jeremy Northam so it caught my eye. I liked the movie very much, mostly because I am a history buff and didn't have much knowledge about the whole "enigma" machine and how it was used by Germany during the war. So from that perspective it was certainly acceptable enough to keep my attention. However, the script did move rather slowly at times and they perhaps threw in too many subplots. I feel it is better to hone in on one subplot and expand it than to have too many and feel like you walk away from the movie not understanding ENOUGH. They could have done a better job, but overall, anyone with an interest in learning a bit about the Enigma would find this movie worth watching. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.
