Dated April 2 2012
By G. Teslovich - Published on Amazon.com
Why it's being re-released is not clear as it appears to be the same as the version filmed in 1997 (1999) and released on DVD in 1999 (2000) (2010). The dates are not even clear as IMDB gives different dates for both. Anyway, an obvious low budget, filmed on a single set (probably), with what was back then cheap computer visual overlay effects and now seems even more stone age. The blue screen just didn't do it's job as real vs. generated images looked artificial. Since the storyline is so dialogue dependent it would have been nice to have had better enunciation and audio clarity; subtitles would have been a tremendous help in this case. I'm surprised that the newer release couldn't find a budget for it. Consequently the story is hard to follow as we try to figure out how a contemporary programmer can communicate with a centuries dead person - Ada Lovelace. Historically, Ada may have had a critical role in possibly the first mechanical calculating (computer) language for a machine designed by Babbage whom she communicated with. The issue revolves around the importance of her translating what an Italian mathematician had written about the machine.
