In This Is Not Einstein, Pascale Montpetit portrays a young woman with a curious mind who embarks on a quest for discovery with Albert Einstein's writing as her guide. This documentary invites us to rediscover the wonder of childhood and our fascination with the riddles of the universe. Through amusing demonstrations and interviews with eminent scientists, the film shows the difficulty of explaining the universe with theories that only partially represent reality. Through our insight into nature is constantly growing, we can never hope for a total understanding. Astronomer Trinh Xuan Thuan reminds us that by questionning the most elemental things, inquisitive minds have made momentous discoveries.
