BREAKING THE CODE

Cognosctivas Sciences Costa Rica (subtitling)

Sorry to make you wait, sir.

Put in order the basic facts.

We are talking about a robbery that occurred on Jan. 23 ...

- ... And you are Mr. Spurling. - No, Turing: T - U - R - I - N - G.

Mike Ross, Detective Sgt.

I catch this.

Would you like to come with me, Lord?

- Is this your list? - If.

A shirt five fish knives,

a pair of dress pants, three pairs of shoes,

an electric razor, half-empty bottle of sherry.

It is not a big thing.

Well, I live simply. Possessions per se mean little to me.

However...

You said ... you told the police, told ...

I had any idea who could have committed the crime.

Okay, yes. I called George.

- George, what? - I do not know.

Who is that man?

- Can you describe it? - Oh no. I have never seen it.

- But you know his name. - Oh yeah. Someone told me.

What did you say, sir?

That man, George, could be a thief.

Who told you?

Well, a young man knocked on the door ... selling something ... brushes or something.

He told me to be careful because he had heard of a robbery ...

in the tavern ... plan the robbery.

This man, George, did you hear ...

make some kind of plan to steal at home?

No, not in my house in particular, no. In a house in my neighborhood.

Or at least that I have understood. That's what he told me.

This ... young man, brushes, told me

I knew the man who was talking ... George.

He recognized it, you see.

Why he did not inform the police at that time?

But I could not ... I mean, I was told to be careful casually,

I had my eyes open, but not really pay much attention.

What kind of brushes sold?

I have no idea. At first glance I thought they were brushes.

I have forgotten it.

It would be helpful if I could remember.

Yes, I'll try.

He never should have lied, that was the real mistake.

I have very clear ideas about what is right and what is wrong ...

- ... And lying is wrong. - But I was scared.

Of course I was scared. He cheated in the examination of Latin. - ... And lying is wrong. - But I was scared.

Of course I was scared. He cheated in the examination of Latin.

He knew he would find out, I knew I punished for lying.

- That makes everything a hundred times worse. - Alan? He knew he would find out, I knew I punished for lying.

- That makes everything a hundred times worse. - Alan?

Alan, are you?

- Oh God! She is my mother. - Here it is, excuse me.

I thought I heard the bell but was not sure.

It was in the garden, you see. Excuse me.

Alan, honey! Do not you show your friend?

Yes, I'm sorry. This is ... Christopher Morcom.

- How are you, Christopher? - How are you, Mrs. Turing.?

Pleased to meet you at last. Alan has told me all about you, and I said - How are you, Christopher? - How are you, Mrs. Turing.?

Pleased to meet you at last. Alan has told me all about you, and I said

Christopher invites a weekend. I never expected him to.

Is always reserved for his school friends.

I think maybe ashamed of us.

Let's move on.

Here we go.

Let's sit down, and you will sit here next to me.

Thank you.

- How long have you been in Sherborne? - A year ... Alan Turing.

- What has gone well? - A lot. - How long have you been in Sherborne? - A year ... Alan Turing.

- What has gone well? - A lot.

Choosing the right school is tremendously important, do not you think?

- I'm very impressed with Sherborne. - Not so wonderful.

Of course it is. What's wrong with it?

At least one thing: they do not treat mathematics as a serious discipline. Of course it is. What's wrong with it?

At least one thing: they do not treat mathematics as a serious discipline.

I can not believe it.

It's true. You know what our tutor said the other day?

He said "this room stinks of mathematics."

And then, looking at me, he said "Salt and brings a disinfectant spray".

I'd kidding!

No. He hates everything that has to do with science or mathematics.

Once fully convinced said that "The Germans lost the Great War

because they thought the science was more important than religion. "

But the teaching of mathematics is not the only way ...

... To judge the qualities of a school.

Yes, but that's all that matters to me.

Do you share that enthusiasm also for the sums and science?

Oh, yes, fully.

Morcom's brother is a scientist, Mom, have a laboratory at home.

For real? Morcom's brother is a scientist, Mom, have a laboratory at home.

For real?

- Chris is good with the telescope. - Really? How splendid!

Oh, it's terrible, Mrs. Turing! Absolutely splendid! - Chris is good with the telescope. - Really? How splendid!

Oh, it's terrible, Mrs. Turing! Absolutely splendid!

The other night ... did not I tell you? The other night I actually saw ...

Jupiter's satellites highlighting the eclipse.

It was incredible.

Caramba!

The sky was beautifully clear, completely cloudless.

I felt I was wandering the universe.

Jupiter, Sirius, Betelgeuse, the Andromeda nebula.

It was quite overwhelming.

- The immensity of creation. - Gosh ... What fantastic!

Yes, it all sounds very exciting, I must say.

Fascinating but far from my reach.

Is the same as the theory of Alan I spoke.

What did you say? You know, that man of Jewish name.

- Mr. Einstein. - Einstein, yes!

I did not understand a word, not a word.

We will take a tea, right?

Wash your hands, Alan; They are covered with ink.

Was Alan's cousin told my grandfather?

He was a scientist. He invented the electron.

He did not invent it, Mom. Electrons exist, can not be invented.

Well, he found or discovered or something.

He was a member of the Royal Society, very distinguished.

Wash your hands, huh? He was a member of the Royal Society, very distinguished.

Wash your hands, huh?

Come with me.

Ah ... Chris.

Sorry, Morcom, one can not choose your own mother.

She is fine.

- You know what I want ... - What?

I wish this were my home.

I mean, my own home.

We could live here, you and I,

have our own rooms, our own laboratories,

work together, share everything.

How wonderful would that life!

Yes it would be.

- Come with me, Christopher! - I have to go.

Oh, Chris!

Thanks for coming to see me today.

Do not forget to wash your hands.

"Someday my prince will come

"Someday we'll meet again

"And we will go away to his castle

"To be happy forever, I know

"Someday, when spring is here

"We'll find our love again

"And the birds will sing

"And wedding bells will ring

"Someday, when my dreams come true"

- Is someone sitting here? - Do not.

I damn cold, huh?

Authentic Christmas atmosphere.

F***ing Christmas! Authentic Christmas atmosphere.

F***ing Christmas!

How was the movie?

Oh ... it has been very good.

"Snow White". I've already seen her. Worth watching.

Yes, I think it's fine. At least for me.

Is not is about an evil witch?

Yes, yes, it gives Snow White a poisoned apple.

Nevertheless, it has a happy ending. She falls asleep Yeah, yeah, gives Snow White a poisoned apple.

Nevertheless, it has a happy ending. She falls asleep
