Film (1988). Serious Productions. Produced and directed by Yahoo Serious. Written by Serious and David Roach. Cast includes John Howard, Odile Le Clezio and Serious. 91 minutes. Colour.
In an Alternate History 1905, Albert Einstein (Serious), a young Tasmanian apple farmer, discovers that E = mc2 (see Nuclear Energy), splits the beer atom, meets and is loved by Marie Curie (Le Clezio), has his atomic formula stolen by the villainous head of the patent office (Howard), invents the surfboard, the electric guitar and rock'n'roll, and saves the world. Serious and his rather narcissistic film both strain too hard to be likeable, and both are soft-centred and not especially funny. [PN]
