    Curiosity got the better of me, and I had to get this when it was released. Sat down to watch it last night, not quite to the end just yet. (So no spoilers)

    Anyone else seen it? I just can't imagine the market for this film existing outside of anyone who fits all of the following -

    - Grew up in 70s/80s.
    - Is a software engineer
    - Is involved in chess/chess Ai

    Then consider it is shot in 4:3, black and white, and using VHS quality video (faked presumably!).

    The movie website Computer Chess

    I'm not recommending it, because it really isn't for everyone, but just highlighting that such a thing exists! Just don't spend extra on a Blu-ray version.

    I would be willing to bet that you and I are the only ones who even understands that programming has a feminine side, and I would loove to stay at your room if you have an extra bed.

    From looking at the trailer, it seems that it could be a fun watch whether you're a programmer or not. I think I'll have a look see.

    I saw the film in Copenhagen during CPH DOX festival.
    I think I wrote about it on this forum but I am not sure.
    After the film a producer Alex Lipschultz asked the audience>
    "Raise your hand if you thought at first that it was a documentary..." Many did.
    He explained difficulties with finding ancient cameras etc...
    Funny that many "actors" are in fact "serious" people...

    I asked a question>>>
    "Khm, I have, khm, very personal question... if you feel embarrassed, you don't have to answer...khm, do you play chess?"

    yes, its a fail, something like, 'your mine woman', or 'resistance is futile', is much more effective, try it.😵
