Screen version of Bertolt Brecht's play about Galileo, the 17th century Italian who laid the foundations of modern science.

This brought him into conflict with the Catholic Church. By threatening him with torture, the Church forced him to recant his views in front of a tribunal, and sentenced him to house arrest. However, Galileo's trials and theories inspired others like Newton and Kepler to prove that the Earth was not the center of the Universe
