Descriptions du produit

A television adaptation of Michael Frayn's celebrated and award-winning stage play about the meeting between physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in 1941 Copenhagen.

At this time the young Heisenberg was leading a faltering German research program into nuclear energy, while the middle-aged and apparently isolated Bohr was in contact with allied agents, and still held a position of great influence in the nuclear physics research community.

After the meeting the two men put different interpretations or impressions of why Heisenberg requested the meeting, and what he hoped to gain from it, a theme which mirrors the ambiguity of the 'Copenhagen' interpretation widely used in quantum physics.

Did Heisenberg go to the avuncular Bohr to seek his blessing for his role in nuclear research? Why did Heisenberg concentrate on the development of a nuclear reactor, and not perform the calculations which would show that a bomb could be made to work via a fast-neutron reaction in Uranium 235?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful Scientific Symbolism 29 août 2009

This dramatized version of Frayn's play deals with a meeting between Niel's Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in Copenhagen during WWII. Both were founders of quantum mechanics, Bohr having made one of the profound initial steps by abandoning some comcepts of classical physics to develop the Bohr model of the atom, and Heisenberg having been the first to develop a correct non-relativitstic version of quantum mechanics.

At the time of the meeting Germany was occupying Denmark and Heisenberg was the director of the secret German project to work on atomic weapons. There are multiple theories why Heisenberg chose to visit Bohr, a political enemy but a revered and respected teacher. Although some theories are more plausible than others, there are still strong emotions generated by attempts to clarify Heisenberg's motivation. The drama is heightened by the earth shaking consequences possible had Heisenberg been successful. But the meeting went awry and neither participant ever clarified the story during their long lifetimes.

The play's artistry is not to dramatize the meeting in such a way as to support one theory or the other---but precisely the opposite. Frayn very cleverly uses the language of quantum mechanics to emphasize the uncertainty of motives and to draw a parallel between our knowledge of each other and ourselves and our knowledge of the physical world as constrained by Heisenberg's indeterminancy principle.

This is interesting history of science, political history and beautiful art. It is well acted and nicely filmed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THREE GREAT ACTORS SHINE IN "COPENHAGEN" 19 janvier 2009
Par Michael C. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Haunting in more ways than one "Copenhagen" is framed by the meeting of the ghosts of three friends who try to come to grips with why sixty years earlier their friendship was destroyed by a visit. This film is fascinating in structure and brilliantly realized as drama.
Francesca Annis is simply wonderful as the wife of Danish Physicist Niels Bohr. She is as brittle and supportive of her husband as she is distrustful and yet tender to their old friend, German physicist Werner Heisenberg. Stephen Rea towers in his portrayal of Bohr and commands the screen in velvet gloved over steel performance. His role is one of such extreme depth and subtlety that I was truly impressed with what he delivered. As Heisenberg, Daniel Craig is a towering presence. Not that the personality of the man he plays is towering, but in his grasp of the complexities and conundrums is. What he does with the slight turn of the head, the shifting of the eyes and the turn of the mouth or the pout of his lips is a lesion in the art of screen acting. It is all about thinking and Craig lets us see what he is thinking. He has the ability to inhabit the moment and let the deepest and sometimes the guarded emotions play across his face.
So here you have three great actors in a challenging work that is worthy of your time you might give to it. This film raises an important question, that of moral responsibility to humanity and when it is split like an atom by the three characters it multiplies the question into even deeper ones of loyalty, friendship, and love. A wonderful experience is waiting your arrival in "Copenhagen".
4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's not for everyone, but it's an interesting take on a very special time and very special subject. 4 février 2013

"Copenhagen" is a special movie that requires some basic background knowledge in order to fully appreciate it. It's not for everyone. If you don't know anything about the central figures (Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg) you will probably not appreciate all of the significance of their discussions. Many questions are raised about their relationship during the '30s and '40s, but few definitive answers are presented. The coincidences of a rising Hitler in Germany and World War II and the rise of nuclear physics leading to the development of the atomic bomb made the fusion (and fission) of the worlds of physics and politics an extremely dangerous game. We know the end result of the combination, but the movie leaves us with some mysteries about who knew what, who said what, and who did what in the relationship between those two scientific giants during the most destructive era in modern human history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Uncertainty Prinicple of Human Relationships 8 septembre 2003
Par Robert W. - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you want to understand Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and other aspects of physics, watch Copenhagen.
If you want to see brilliantly acted characters, watch Copenhagen.
If you want to be pulled into a wonderful work of moral complexity, watch Copenhagen.
Copenhagen brings to life questions of history, science, friendship and morality as it seelessly twists together dramatic dialogue and scientific explanations to the point that the science is the dialogue.
How it does this and still avoid becoming esoteric and stilted I can't explain, but it does.
That so much of the play is a conversation between ghosts seems like dry humor, since two men who practically defined the nature of an atom must become supernatural just to speak to each other once more.
True, this is clearly a filmed stage play as opposed to being a true movie, but the power of the performances and the beauty of the concept more than makes up for this forgivable condition. Steven Rea alone makes the film worthwhile.
You may not laugh out loud.
You may not cry your way through a box of tissues.
You may not dig your finger nails into the arms of your chair. But, if you give this film a chance, you will enjoy it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 NOW I get it! 1 octobre 2003

I was fortunate to see this play during it's Broadway run. While it was brilliantly acted, directed and was able to add one chilling element the film can't (the onstage audience in the elevated gallery, always looking like a silent jury)at times I had trouble following when we were seeing a flashback, an inner dialogue, or plot development. (The physics in the play is quite well presented but trust me, don't have that second tequilla shot before the curtain, no matter what!You really have to be on the ball for this one.) However, now having seen the film twice, many things come clear. The magic of film allows the players to think private thoughts without us mistaking them for side comments being made under the breath. Also, it is very clear when we are listening to the ghosts and the live players. But what REALLY gave me an ah-ha moment was when I finally saw that the play is crafted to mimic the act of nuclear fission. Instead of a neutron colliding with and splitting an atom into several directions, setting off a chain reaction, we witness two brilliant physicists colliding, also under forced circumstances and the split is represented by the various possible outcomes of that collision. We view several versions of the same encounter, each with different implications and motives. I can't wait to see this again and see where bells "ding" for me this time. The score is haunting and adds a great deal, as solo piano is unsurpassed in evoking a sense of isolation and loneliness. Acting is uniformly solid. I know I'll get lambasted for this, but I really preferred this cast over the b'way cast, especially Steven Rea, who added just a touch of melancholy to the role that I don't remember in the original. Give it a try. You may come away with the uneasy feeling that in a roundabout way, these men may have saved our planet.
