In the long history of mankind, wars have never stopped. How should we define war? Wisdom, courage, cold blood, determination, sacrifice, parting, luck or emotion?

"War on Heavy Water" is a successful war theme work. It revolves around the most exciting piece of history during World War II: Nazi Germany intended to develop an atomic bomb, and in order to stop the German attempt, British intelligence, with the cooperation of the Norwegians, worked hard to destroy the heavy water equipment and finally succeeded, ending the German atomic bomb. dream.

The small drama in this war drama is also a crucial part of the overall situation. What I remember most in this film is Leif's speech in the Norwegian version of "The Last Lesson".

The person I am most interested in in this film is Heisenberg, a German scientist. In order to better understand the film, I also checked his detailed information. His whole person gave me the feeling of "bewildering". During World War II, many German scientists went to other countries because of their opposition to the Nazi government, but Heisenberg chose to stay in Germany and was entrusted by the government to develop the atomic bomb.

For Heisenberg, I am personally most interested in two points:

1. What did he say when he saw Bohr?

2. Did he "intentionally" make a mistake that delayed the development of the German atomic bomb?

Both of these are performed wonderfully in the play

The scene where Heisenberg goes to see Bohr in the second episode is very thought-provoking. Heisenberg persuaded Bohr to take a cooperative attitude and join him in developing the atomic bomb. He felt that war could serve science, but Bohr refused, saying it was stupid and naive. But I always feel that Heisenberg has something to say here. "you don't understand what i am talking about" made me wonder, did Bohr really understand Heisenberg's intentions?

In the fifth episode, when Heisenberg and his assistant were doing calculations, the assistant swore that there was no problem, but Heisenberg proficiently calculated the correct data, only ten kilograms of uranium, not a few tons of uranium, could build an atomic bomb, the assistant was amazed Incessantly, I asked how such a mistake could have occurred before, but Heisenberg just stared at the blackboard meaningfully and did not speak.

In the face of war, everyone faces a choice. In the face of war, it seems that everyone's fate is not in their own hands, but it is not, as Leif said in his speech, valget er ditt.

At the end of the film, watching innocent people die in the military plan, watching the burning piano, my mood could not calm down for a long time.
