Storm movieTim Minchin‘s short anime Storm is absolutely brilliant!

I have to admit that I often feel the same way as the protagonist of this anime. What’s worse, in real live I’ve been known to be a lot less patient than Tim and to be merciless in annihilating verbally people like Storm… [Lot’s of personal development I need to do – I know… but people who know me know I was much, much worse when I was young. So I’m actually a lot more mellow now ;-]

Storm film synopsis: In the confines of a London dinner party, comedian Tim Minchin argues with a hippy named Storm. While Storm herself may not be converted, audiences from London to LA have been won over by Tim’s wordplay and the timely message of the film in a society where science and reason are portrayed as the enemy of belief.
