we begin with a new film about the most legendary woman in science maggie kookery radioactive is currently doing the festival circuits and all man scott rocks for a quarter with it's a rainy and director marjon satrapi zurich film festival in switzerland he'll be here in the studio in a minute but 1st his reports about. science is changing. careers scientists rebel and feminist and a new film from mars also topping in this extraordinary look at the 2 time nobel prize winner and pioneer of the science of radioactivity change the world. such crappy remembers her own mother holding scientists up as a role model for any mother who was preparing her daughter not to making with matt each and become a good wife and wanted a better thing for the girl to become independent and be someone then you know i company something this is the example she's one of they sampled he would give to your child for. the tropics portrait of cure
a is warts and all for achievements or segments the nucular destruction her discoveries will unleash peace and leave my liberal actress rosamund pike place jury as headstrong bordering on arrogant. that it was a open castle with with him and with us is she genius is ok but as it comes to women women they always have to be perfect they always have to be sweet and they have to be nice and try so to i don't know if any sweet woman. is a trap easy on screen curry is definitely not sweet radioactive is a portrait of a complex contradictory woman whose ideas transformed our world. and scott writes for joins me now very true what she just said that as you mentioned in the report going to korea double nobel prize winner alleged great figure in science so does this fill do her justice my foot in unfortunately not quite i mean it's a perfectly decent film and of course. really is. stored near
a woman who did an extraordinary things but this for me is a bit too much of an ordinary a biopic for such an amazing woman i mean it's quite sort of by the numbers by the book style film that we've seen numerous times with with male protagonist some what i find interesting though toppy she originally was a graphic artist she was originally a cartoonist and just incredible visual style and this film is also very impressive visually and i think it's most interesting when she sort of breaks away from the traditional biopic and she does include interesting things visually and and connects cories achievements in science with what will come after and links it to the disasters that come after it including the nuclear bomb which probably wouldn't be possible without some of the discovery she made and she does that sort of breaks the balance of the traditional biopic i think really really works unfortunately she does it too doesn't do it too often and usually it's a fairly by the numbers job there seems to be a trend for biopics about famous women of the moment yeah very much so in fact it's interesting i'd even call the subject author of feminist bio pics you have
a series of films which are about famous women who were very influential in inventing the cause of women so we have this film we have. ruth bader ginsburg there was a great documentary on her the supreme court justice now there's a biopic on her you have harriet tubman the african-american abolitionist even even helen reddy the australian singer who created the feminist anthem i am woman she has a new a new film about her interesting though or sadly i think with the 1st wave of feminist biopics what seems to unite them is that they're all kind of conventional and not really that good none of them are horrible i've seen all of them but they're they're a bit too too conventional too too safe and it seems almost as if these directors and they're all female directors have made these films are a bit too respect full of their of their subject and are really taking a taking of chances in my pain but still talking about biopics the director is this director's 1st film was was almost that wasn't. yes interesting her such as i said
she was a cartoonist a graphic artist and she had a great graphic novel persepolis which she dropped it herself as her 1st try as a director and this is her own story it's a story of her a growing up in iran she was born just after the iranian revolution she lived through the arranged around iraq war and then she emigrated to europe where she experienced a sort of cultural and sexual liberation but also a new forms of prejudice and oppression an amazing film an amazing debut and it was won the jury prize in cannes when it debuted was nominated for an oscar really really impressive work i remember i remember talking about it i shall remember the film we can see from those films that from those pictures that really innovative is this what's lacking in such rafi's new movies yeah i think so i mean i remember seeing persepolis that just blew me away also because it was such an interesting new story but the way she told it i mean she took so much from her own work as a graphic artist and top was able to tell incredible scenes with just
a simple squiggle or a certain line really take the cartoon a static and bring it into film which i've never seen before i'm used to glimpse of that in radioactive some of the visual elements that she brings into the film but the film fortunately for me is far too conventional really wish you'd she was able to break loose ok now you interviewed some length in spite of your problems with the new film is she going to be named to watch out for i think so yeah i don't think she's ever lived up to the last couple of films that she's made just lived up to early promise but we see with this film that she can do a sort of by the numbers biopic she can sort of make a bigger picture with bigger stars i hope that means hollywood have the confidence to give her more money to tell her own stories and to take more risks beating her she's a force of nature i definitely think the new and better things are to come for ok scott as always a mine of information thanks very much. although there are various exhibitions and events taking place around the world celebrating the genius
of being a not a davinci who died 500 years ago the last 3 years of his life spent in the valley in france now we joined today in our experts who introduced us to some of the amazing ideas he dreamt up as well as some architectural influences leonardo left behind in the region. the most beautiful castles in little while valley completely in the style of leonardo da vinci. the italian relations man spent the final years of his life at the chateau de clue see in on the wall at the invitation of king france's the 1st now 2 experts from france and germany have come to follow in their were no geniuses footsteps in the basement of the palace exhibits machines fashioned after some of the vinci sketches the principle behind his designs was always the same he analyzed what he saw broke it down and rearrange them into something new.
the feat i think we can take from you now though to be capable of challenging ideas that have been carried on for 4 years then cherry then even 1000000 a reef or in some 50 kilometers away. everything centers around the vinci as an engineer trying contraptions based on theoretical designs by the renascence artist his idea started with a pair of wings that a human could power when that didn't work the artist simply thought up something else. this is very very close to what a modern hang glider is the man is here on his feet out here so with his hands so he can control the peach. this way of the time machine and with his feet and he's
sweet he can control the role this way. the paying to da vinci has a large exhibition dedicated to him in the gardens of krill you say you can also see a tapestry of vinci's fresco the last supper on loan from the vatican. dublin she's lost large scale projects in france was the chateau de boer many of his early after actual designs from its really were incorporated in the construction. we are not trying to mix different knowledge is and knowledge is coming from different places and you know there was a master and i think this is the biggest lesson we should take now just right now from the a lot of. even 500 years ago leonardo da vinci was a modern european his drive to reinvent the world created some of the most impressive morning months that will continue to delight generations to come.
