Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Director Michael Apted and screenwriter Tom Stoppard deliver a good, old-fashioned spy movie with all the trimmings in this smooth adaptation of Robert Harris’s bestseller. Set during World War II, Enigma follows a brilliant and temperamental young code breaker Dougray Scott who’s called upon to crack the Nazis' Enigma code before a major Allied convoy is sunk by U-boats. At the same time, he investigates the mysterious disappearance of the alluring blonde co-worker Saffron Burrows who broke his heart and may or may not be a spy. If this sounds like a mouthful of plot, it is, but Apted directs with a remarkable restraint that keeps a simmering pot from boiling over. He also draws some nicely understated performances from his cast, which includes Jeremy Northam -- as a wary British intelligence officer who's spying on everyone -- and Kate Winslet as the bookish, kindhearted woman who helps our hero solve mysteries of both mind and heart. Producers Lorne Michaels and Mick Jagger chose some seasoned veterans to make this film, and the final product, which is utterly devoid of Hollywood pyrotechnics, evokes British spy tales of decades past. With its literate dialogue and neo-classical approach to storytelling, Enigma is very much a thinking-person's mystery.
All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Despite its old-fashioned moral compass and tendency to disguise hugh chunks of unwieldy World War II exposition as dialogue, this docudrama manages to entertain on the strength of its plucky heroine, haunting femme fatale, and aura of innocence lost. Kate Winslet, glammed down and hiding behind spectacles, is the mystery-obsessed gal Friday for whom it's impossible not to root. Saffron Burrows, in a series of alluring flashbacks, is the real enigma haunting tortured mathematical genius/hero Dougray Scott. The sexual tension between Winslet's Hester Wallace and Scott's Tom Jericho is strictly pro forma, as is the eventual whodunit denouement. In-between, though, there are fascinating glimpses of cryptological history, plenty of period detail, and enough tweed-garbed mucking around in the English countryside to fill an entire PBS miniseries. Ultimately, veteran director Michael Apted's picture is an absurd anachronism, but one that holds onto the strength of its convictions, resulting in a watchable enough piece of historical fluff.
Washington Post
With an unorthodox, at least by Hollywood standards, heroine (brains trump beauty!) and an adventure with the highest stakes imaginable (math prodigy saves the free world!), the oddball allure of Enigma is no mystery. Michael O'Sullivan
San Francisco Chronicle
For most of it's 117 minutes, Enigma delivers a powerful story from World War II that's based on real events. Jonathan Curiel
New York Observer
Visits spy-movie territory like a novel you can’t put down, examines a footnote to history seldom brought to light on the screen, and keeps you guessing from first frame to last. Rex Reed

    ENIGMA IS WONDERFUL

    I thought the movie was so wonderful I don't know how I missed it in the theatres. The location shooting is fabulous, lovely English countryside. I thouroughly enjoy a period film and this one had it all, clothes, cars, and city scenes. What a wonderful suspenseful adventure.

    Don't Let This Film Remain An Enigma!

    I saw Enigma in the theater in fact, I went to an art-film theater because the local cineplex wasn't showing it. I loved it. The movie is full of WWII spy-intrigue and the ending is great. It was good to see Kate Winslet again, post-Titanic, and one of the good things about this film is that she's a bit plump in this movie, a nice change from abnormally thin actresses. You have to see this movie!
