“The Atom: A Love Affair takes no sides, and pulls no punches in its witty and admirably objective archival account of the West’s relationship with nuclear power” — New Scientist

Behind-the-scenes political drama meets sentimental screen romance in this sweeping international feature documentary, delving deep into the past of the world’s most controversial energy source. With gems from the archives, a lush romantic score and a warm and playful tone, the film charts the West’s rollercoaster love-hate relationship with nuclear power over the past 75 years. It’s a dramatic tale of belief, betrayal, intrigue and hope, and it’s told by the scientists, engineers, politicians and campaigners who experienced it first hand.
