The Man Who Knew Infinity is moving, but not as compelling as the real life story of the genius it celebrates. The definitive film on Ramanujan remains to be made...

The Man Who Knew Infinity tells a good, if standard story and I'm glad I saw it.

A sincere treatment with better pacing than similar films, The Man Who Knew Infinity is really at its best when showcasing its brilliant lead performers.

The period detailing - be it a rustic locale or sophisticated surroundings - is quite superb. Brown also tries to give the story an emotional touch, to good effect. And in fact, it is this which makes this film both enjoyable and gripping.

The movie works. It tells an important story and it does make a meal out of the subject.
October 24, 2017
Dev Patel as Ramanujan and Jeremy Irons as his Cambridge mentor both impress and there's a top-notch supporting cast that includes Toby Jones, Jeremy Northam and the late Richard Johnson, whose last film this was.

There is something almost spiritual about this film that makes it more than just a maths biopic.
September 12, 2017
The Man Who Knew Infinity is persuasive and quite surprising.
August 29, 2017
The Man Who Knew Infinity brings to life a genius long overdue for recognition.
February 7, 2017
The movie is fairly formulaic [but] Irons delivers a masterclass in cranky eccentricity and buttoned-up reserve.

An intriguing story told in generic fashion, Infinity gets good value from irons and a dignified swansong from the late Richard Johnson.

A fable of personal growth and rising above, that succeeds in making a critique of the british xenophobe right wing that keeps growing in present day. [Full review in Spanish]

Something between a crowd pleaser and a tearjerker that will surely some will enjoy, but those who prefer a sober film will avoid it. [Full review in Spanish]

Patel's detached fervour complements Irons, as smoothly watchable as always.
June 21, 2016
This biopic makes [maths] seem exciting and necessary, and sets it in a wide human context to appeal to those who have difficulty adding up their shopping bills.
May 26, 2016
Pleasantly watchable but utterly lacking in surprises
May 21, 2016
Irons and Patel create a bit of magic with their mathematical dance, so even when Brown's script bogs down in clich and the female characters are swept into the corner of every scene, the viewer has something meaty to process.

It fills a hole in popular scientific knowledge, and does so with a measure of grace and good humour.
