Ada Lovelace was a most unlikely computer pioneer. In this film, Dr Hannah Fry tells the story of Ada's remarkable life. Born in the early 19th century Ada was a countess of the realm, a scandalous socialite and an 'enchantress of numbers'. The film is an enthralling tale of how a life infused with brilliance, but blighted by illness and gambling addiction, helped give rise to the modern era of computing.

The Countess - pretending to be her own daughter - starts dallying with a younger man, much to Dobi's annoyance.

La famiglia Bergman è una grande famiglia allargata, un vero e proprio clan, da sempre molto unita. Ma poiché le famiglie non si limitano a crescere, ma con il tempo inevitabilmente invecchiano, arriva il momento in cui bisogna affrontare una serie di problemi. Cathleen Schine, profonda osservatrice dell'universo familiare e delle relazioni umane, in questo romanzo dà il meglio di sé, senza mai rinunciare al suo innato senso dell'umorismo e alla sua penna sempre elegante.

This is one of the few comedies that starred Brigitte Helm. Unlike most of his other films, not plays vampire cold or dangerous woman, but of a defenseless actress who suffers the consequences of their own little lies.
