Copenhagen Fall Out – Niels Bohr & Werner Heisenberg.

Inspired by the actual events that have intrigued and baffled historians for more than 50 years, Copenhagen revolves around a 1941 meeting between two brilliant physicists, Niels Bohr of Denmark (Stephen Rea) and Germany’s Werner Heisenberg (Daniel Craig); long-time friends whose work together had opened the way to the atomic bomb, but who were now on opposite sides of World War II.
