Storyline

Fleeing a violent thunderstorm, a young goat named Mei becomes separated from his tribe and takes shelter in a cabin. He soon is not alone, as another creature limps inside. In the dark they cannot see each other, both have colds and cannot smell each other, but in conversation assume they are of the same kind for they have much in common even apart from a shared fear of thunder, having been taught by elders to run fast to survive and to value loyalty and friendship. They agree to meet the next day for a picnic, with the words "stormy night" used to identify each other. Getting past their initial shock at seeing each other in the daylight, their friendship grows even though they were born enemies, as a goat and a wolf. They continue to meet secretly with Gav fighting off his natural predator tendencies. One day Gav helps Mei escape a wolf hunt, and they are observed together. The other goats demand that Mei use his friend to get details of the wolves plans or be exiled. Gav is ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Breathtakingly Bittersweet Animated Adventure
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An enchanting tale of two characters, enemies by nature, but friends in heart. Shows that even the most impossible of friendships can work out if you only believe it can.This movie will show you how true friendship never gives up, is self sacrificing, and never ever is forgotten. One Stormy night is 100X better than anything animated Disney has been chucking out the past few years. The very revival of Classic animation with a fresh story and two characters that will stay with you long after the movie ends. Leaves you with a satisfying ending but you'll wish for more. In my opinion the best animated film since "The Lion King" A MUST SEE!
