I borrowed the movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen from my local library, having seen the trailer on another DVD. I don’t remember hearing about the movie anywhere else, and so I suspect that many readers may likewise never have heard about it.
The movie makes some excellent points, including exploring faith as something which human beings have and need. Religious faith may or may not be present, but faith of some sort is necessary. The movie also explores other themes, such as hubris and the glorification of God vs. oneself.
Have other readers of this blog seen the movie? Even if you have not, do you think that faith of some sort is a necessary component of human life, even for those who may reject religious faith?
