Trivia

The scene in which DD enters a huge room full of computers, and talks to a guy who plays a computer game called "Storm", was shot in November 2004 on the world's largest computer festival, "Dreamhack", arranged every year in Sweden with over 6000 participants. Director Björn Stein thought that the festival would act as a cool and spectacular environment that would fit perfectly into the film. See more »

Entertaining but didn't quite hit my spot
11 February 2009 | by skelkSee all my reviews

The world of DD is all a bit dulled. He is insensitive to touch and doesn't really know what he wants out of life or where he wants to take his career. Whilst pleasant enough to those around him he is the kinda guy who never returns the DVD's you lend him and he isn't the kind of guy to go out of his way to help a stranger in need, or to even give them the time of day. DD is a reflection of society in general.

So what would happen if this easy life was torn in two because of lost remnants of his childhood? Storm takes the viewer on a twisting comic book journey that forces the main character to question his entire way of life by looking back upon his previous choices and actions. Storm has often been likened to the Matrix in terms of style, both of the main characters are comic book heroes of sorts, both are lost in a confused world, but the comparison ends there. There are a couple of nods to some scenes from the matrix (Run DD) but Storm takes an entirely fresh look at what it is to be alive and to feel. Some scenes are very eerie and are reminiscent of silent hill and the ending is quite bizarre too. Essentially Storm questions the intrinsic nature of man, albeit with clunkiness and size 11 boots.
