Hysterical history
27 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

If this poor excuse for a historical drama tried to convince us of anything it was that Einstein had Asperger's, Zagreb was in Serbia and WWI started in a very cold snowy winter. The war in fact began in August 1914 at the height of Summer and Zagreb is actually the capital of Croatia, which in 1914 was part of Austria-Hungary not Serbia, but I totally agree Einstein as depicted was in desperate need of treatment! The real Albert must be turning in his grave, relatively speaking!
