Like so many epidemics before, the loss of so many lives began with a single microscopic organism. It’s human nature to seek even the smallest comfort in reason, or logic for evens as catastrophic as these.

But a virus dosen’t choose a time or place. It dosen’t hate or even care. It just happens

This is a film produced in 2008. It is a story of a deadly virus spread out in Scotland, which has been quarantined. Whatever the comments or critics for this film, the beginning seems to reflect the current COVID-19. It is now on Netflix.

ICOVID-19, which began in Dec 2019, are still ravaging worldwide. The recent news also reported that it has been in the 3rd surge in the US. Amide the COVID-19 pandemic, it is really safe based in Taiwan, but out of the world. I hope to have a whole new 2021 to get rid of COVID-19/SARS-COV-2 although it seems not to happen easily.



男主角Akshay Kumar,我們已經看過許多他的電影,在臺灣比較有名的是:Toilet(廁所愛情故事)、Pad Man(護墊俠),在Netflix則可以到Special 26、OH MY God和NAAM SHABANAM(鄰家特工沙芭娜)。這個電影可以說是大國家印度版本的「逃離德黑蘭」,相對強大的美國政府和外交保護,凸顯的是印度官僚體制的反應遲鈍。不過仍可以看到小官員的努力和最後印度這個大國家,撤離了11萬多位印度僑民的壯舉(1990 airlift of Indians from Kuwait),看到電影中快結束前的印度國旗飄揚,對應剛開始前他們對於「印度人」的身份感到一笑置之的畫面,果然是大國對於民族意識的重視阿!
