Copenhagen (2003)

Details Release Date: May 13, 2003; DVD Release Date: May 13, 2003; Genre: Drama; With: Daniel Craig and Stephen Rea

You don't need to be a quantum physicist to appreciate the British adaptation of Michael Frayn's play, but a strong attention span and an interest in the atomic bomb help, since the nucleus of Copenhagen is a 1941 meeting between Niels Bohr (Stephen Rea) and Werner Heisenberg (Daniel Craig). An explosive drama has become a small-screen gem, soaked in ominous shadow and confined by a restless camera. The reason for Heisenberg's visit is never revealed, but the beauty of ''Copenhagen'' lies in its mystery.
