The Imitation Game 2015

4.5 /5


The Imitation Game is a 2014 film directed by Morten Tyldum, starring Benedict Cumberbatch who interprets the mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing. The film is based on the life of the aforementioned Alan Turing, who during the Second World War helped the allies to decrypt the enemy messages. The Germans used a machine called "Enigma", now indecipherable. To decipher the indecipherable, the British government put together a team of brains, led by Turing. Initially there was skepticism about the company, but after a series of difficulties, they managed to accomplish what was considered impossible. The British government hid the project for 50 years. Alan Mathison Turing was born in London on June 23, 1912 in Manchester and died on June 7, 1954. He is one of the founding fathers of computer science and one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century. His work had a vast influence on the birth of computer science, thanks to his concepts of algorithm and calculation by means of the machine, which in turn constituted a significant step forward in the evolution towards the modern computer. He died suicide at the age of 41, following the persecution suffered by the British authorities because of his homosexuality.
