Synopsis

'Like Me, Only Better' is a laconic comedy about Neuroses, Catholicism and Prozac.

Clive tries to become a better person and to overcome his various Obsessive Compulsive disorders. The film establishes a link between his Catholic upbringing, his childhood imagination and his adult phobias and compulsions.

A hand-drawn animation in pencil, it moves between the inner and outer worlds of the main character. http://www.gmfilm.co.uk
