I saw the movie, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, recently and enjoyed the story. One of the main characters was a scientist who professed not to have faith and only believed in science. However it was a Muslim who proved to him that he actually did have faith! As a Christian I found this quite amusing in a secular film. I am not sure that it was the director’s intention but the movie makes the point that we all believe things that cannot be proved by scientific testing.

Having made this point the movie is then in a position to inspire people to dare to dream, dare to believe the impossible. In this case dare to believe it is possible to have salmon fishing in the Yemen! But ultimately to dare to believe that the seemingly impossible can happen.
