- Radioactive review by JA
I have loved this director’s past works but this one seemed rather insipid by comparison. This film showed Marie Curie’s fight to be taken seriously as a female scientist and a foreigner in France. Perhaps there should have been lighter moments to contrast with her struggle. Still a worthwhile film to watch!

- Radioactive review by Alphaville
Interesting biopic of Marie Curie, although as the title implies it’s equally a history of radium, polonium and radioactivity, which she discovered. There are even brief dramatic reconstructions of future events such as Hiroshima 1945. The science could be better explained and, as with most biopics that cover the subject’s whole life rather than focus on the most interesting part of it, the tone is uneven. After we’ve become involved in Curie’s personal and scientific life in Paris with her colleague and husband Pierre, the events of her later life with her eldest daughter, though equally important in reality, come across as an anti-climax on screen. Still, it’s a fascinating story of a remarkable woman and a very watchable film.

Her struggle as a female as a scientist, the impact on her marriage.
Fairly opulent accommodation for a struggling scientist. Blissful performance by pike
