Storyline

Tim Minchin and his wife arrive at a dinner party in a North London flat hosted by a doctor friend and his actress wife. The fifth guest is a new-age advocate of all things 'alternative', as Tim soon discovers, and he can't help but challenge her attacks on science and rationalism. As manners and etiquette go out of the window, Storm and Tim do verbal battle on subjects such as psychics, medicine, religion and the meaning of life. Written by Tracy King

Trivia

The only "real doctor" associated with the animated short is the musician and sound engineer Dr Milton Mermikides - who was brought to the team not only for his musical talents, but because he was also a leukaemia survivor. Due to the tight movie release schedule, both he and his wife Bridget's surnames were mis-spelt in the film credits as 'Mermikedes'... much to their chargrin. See more »

I Feel Enlightened!
25 January 2013 | by (Economic Capital Of India) – See all my reviews

Such an amazing ten minutes of my life that I watched this on YT. Pure magnificence and I am overwhelmed with Minchin's way of using slapstick to show us what reality is.

A competition between religion and science - never have I seen a wonderful depiction where there are proofs and not just faiths. Storm talks about how we have all become dependent to the technology and DO NOT star gaze. Much like most of us don;t know why Pluto isn't a planet anymore, the need to Google everything has become a trend which is a negativity.

The narration is musical with drums playing, the characters already having enough depth and a creative take on the new era. Wonderful!

Storm inspires us to think and like Hemingway said, if we think - we are atheists. A great short film - must watch even if you are a non-atheist.
