Okay but du Sautoy did a fatal mistake: He reafied "The Code" (mathematical formulas) and implies that these formulas drive the "Laws of the Universe". This is no more true than the word "tree" makes a tree grow. Math is only another language to describe patterns and relationships. Do you think Nature uses math to figure thing out? Not. Having said this, it is an interesting documemtry and explains the patterns and relationship very well if only a little sensationlistic. How humans "crack" the code is more a testiment to humans intellegence how we communicate and understand Nature's process but that knowing does not make it so.

Very well done documentary movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. A++ DVD "too bad he couldn't come up with the numbers for the Powerbell "
