This is a docu-drama originally broadcast on Nova television in 2005.
Newton was a 17th-century Einstein who reduced nature's chaos to a single set of laws and revolutionalized the thinking and outlook of his age.
In the midst of his astonishing breakthroughs in physics, optics and calculus, however, Newton also searched out hidden meanings in the Bible, pursuing the covert art of alchemy---the changing of base metals into gold.
The film reveals his secretive and vindictive personality, recreating one of Newton's little-known alchemical experiments using his secret recipes, which have only recently been deciphered.
It is a profoundly fascinating yet puzzling docu-drama.
The title is a bit misleading because this doc deals with Newton in a holistic way, and spends more time on his traditional science than on his alchemy and theology.
It is quite interesting and explains basic concepts clearly.
Very well done. The acting was great, as were the visualizations and scenery. The aspects of Newton's life that they expanded on shed a new light on him, his secret endeavors, and his beliefs.
interesting documentary about his life and work. i recommend it for teens and adults
