The Imitation Game

114 minutes 2014 8.0

One winter day in 1952, British authorities broke into the home of mathematician, encryption expert and war hero Alan Turing to investigate a burglary. Surprisingly, it ends instead with the arrest of the scientist. The authorities were completely unaware that they had arrested the pioneer in modern computer technology, for Alan Turing was the man behind a great feat during World War II.

With a special group of students, linguists, chess masters and intelligence agents, he succeeded in interpreting Hitler's Germany's so-called insoluble codes, and understanding key encryptions generated by the military's advanced Enigma machines.

The Imitation Game is the intense and nerve-wracking story of the brilliant but complicated genius Alan Turing, who under inhuman pressure helped shorten a world war and save the lives of thousands of people.
