The true enigma was the man who cracked the code.

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.

The Imitation Game - Ein streng geheimes Leben

Nach einer unglücklichen Jugend beginnt der brillante Mathematiker Alan Turing während seines Studiums an der Cambridge-Universität, sein volles Potenzial zu entfalten. Schnell gehört er zu den führenden Denkern des Landes, besonders was seine Theorien zu Rechenmaschinen angeht. Genau diese machen auch den britischen Geheimdienst auf das Genie aufmerksam. Nach einem Test, den Alan mit Leichtigkeit besteht, wird er Mitglied einer geheimen Gruppe. Ihre Aufgabe: im Zweiten Weltkrieg die Kommunikation der Deutschen entschlüsseln. Mit Hilfe von Joan Clarke und Hugh Alexander und unter der Leitung von Stewart Menzies sowie Commander Denniston versucht Alan, den Verschlüsselungsapparat Enigma zu knacken, um an kriegsentscheidende Informationen zu kommen...

Imitation Game

1940 : Alan Turing, mathématicien, cryptologue, est chargé par le gouvernement Britannique de percer le secret de la célèbre machine de cryptage allemande Enigma, réputée inviolable. À la tête d'une équipe improbable de savants, linguistes, champions d'échecs et agents du renseignement, Turing s'attaque au chef-d'œuvre de complexité dont la clef peut conduire à la victoire. IMITATION GAME relate la façon dont Alan Turing, soumis à une intense pression, contribua à changer le cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et de l'Histoire. C'est aussi le portrait d'un homme qui se retrouva condamné par la société de l'époque en raison de son homosexualité et en mourut.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Manchester, primi anni '50. Alan Turing, brillante matematico ed esperto di crittografia, viene interrogato dall'agente di polizia che lo ha arrestato per atti osceni. Turing inizia a raccontare la sua storia partendo dall'episodio di maggiore rilevanza pubblica: il periodo, durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, in cui fu affidato a lui e ad un piccolo gruppo di cervelloni, fra cui un campione di scacchi e un'esperta di enigmistica, il compito di decrittare il codice Enigma, ideato dai Nazisti per comunicare le loro operazioni militari in forma segreta. È il primo di una serie di flashback che scandaglieranno la vita dello scienziato morto suicida a 41 anni e considerato oggi uno dei padri dell'informatica in quanto ideatore di una macchina progenitrice del computer.
