describing in detail all kinds of inadaptability of scientists in ordinary people's society
20 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

It's a very good film, describing in detail all kinds of inadaptability of scientists in ordinary people's society. Unfortunately, Gauss's part is too dull, as if he could only count it back and forth. Humboldt's exploration of primitive nature is much more interesting. After all, it's good to just look at the scenery. Although the director deliberately added a lot of play with his assistant to Humboldt, throwing can not change this situation.
