Daniel Tammet : The Boy With The Incredible Brain Movie

'The Boy With The Incredible Brain' is the breathtaking story of Daniel Tammet. A twenty-something with extraordinary mental abilities, Daniel is one of the world’s few savants. He can do calculations to 100 decimal places in his head, and learn a language in a week. This documentary follows Daniel as he travels to America to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone. He also meets the world’s most famous savant, the man who inspired Dustin Hoffman’s character in the Oscar winning film ‘Rain Man’. (2005)

Tammet holds the European record for reciting pi from memory to 22,514 digits in five hours and nine minutes on March 14, 2004, and he did it without a single mistake.

Tammet can also learn new languages very quickly. To prove it on this documentary film "The Boy With The Incredible Brain", Tammet was challenged to learn Icelandic in one week. Seven days later he appeared on Icelandic television conversing in Icelandic, with his Icelandic language instructor saying it was "not human" and "genius!". Segments of the interview showing Tammet responding to questions in Icelandic were televised on the 28 January 2007 edition of the CBS news magazine, 60 Minutes.
