* New this week: Even though "Enigma" has a plot almost as hard to crack as the Nazi coding device that gives this World War II thriller its name, it is such grand, romantic entertainment that it sweeps the viewer along in its swiftly escalating suspense. More unpredictable than it first seems, "Enigma" crackles with Michael Apted's vigorous, perceptive direction from a superior script by Tom Stoppard based on the 1995 Robert Harris bestseller. A complex, meticulous period re-creation down to the tiniest detail, this handsome production suggests that there may have been a Nazi spy at Britain's Bletchley Park, where code-breakers toiled in top secrecy. With Dougray Scott, Kate Winslet, Saffron Burrows and Jeremy Northam.
