Outstanding. A trip to Bletchley Park is worth it if you haven’t done so.

Howdy Neilo, and I’m certain it was one or both or neither.

But that second movie I have not seen. I need to dig it up!

The novel by British writer Robert Harris from 1996 entitled Enigma talks about the backstage of work on deciphering Enigma in Bletchley Park. Based on the novel, a film was directed in 2001, directed by Michael Apted under the title Enigma, starring Kate Winslet and Dougray Scott. The film has been repeatedly criticized by the British Polish diaspora community (Polish Union) and the Polish-British historical committee, as well as by the head of the chair of Eastern Europe at the University of Oxford due to historical adulteration and lack of information about the fundamental participation of Poles in deciphering the Enigma


In the movie directed by Morten Tyldum from 2014 entitled" Game of Secrets" the story of Alan Turing was presented. The action focuses on the figure of the outstanding mathematician and his innovative steps to crack the Enigma code. The film also mentions the participation of Polish cryptologists in the work on the cipher.
