A very inspiring tale of tenacity and courage
14 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you expect a literal scientific bio of Marie Curie, it is not that film. However, Marie Noelle focuses on the protagonist as a woman, first of all, and then as a scientist fighting in the world of men-dominated academia. And this selection makes the film particularly interesting. Beautifully shot, with masterfully selected music, and splendid performance of Karolina Gruszka. You can watch it as a love story or more as a dedication to your love. A very inspiring tale of tenacity and courage.
