Fermat’s Last Theorum

I am a sucker for a good math story.  I don’t particularly like math, and am not particularly good at math, but I enjoy the world of math.
This is a fantastic documentary about a man trying to prove (or disprove) Fermat’s Last Theorum.  Before watching this video, I had no idea who or what Fermat was, or his theorum.
You don’t need to know what these math guys are necessarily talking about.  The documentary does a great job of finding the drama within the story, so that the actual math is rather irrelevant.
Take a watch.  If you make it to the end of the first segment (about 1:30 into the doc), I bet you’ll be hooked and want to keep watching.
