    [SIZE=no]Oh!no!...
    I even have no idea ahout how many times my ears were talked off just because of the SARS. How mnay people was found out being infected.How many people died.Every day, every minute!
    Did this ever occur in any films?I am sure there are!If put this situation into a movie,at least record it,we,people of the 80's, will have a big story to show.
    Anyway, a sad history movie!
    But life should keep going on!So I am here!

    "Outbreak" has definitely been on my mind ever since the SARS crisis began. But I have been too chicken to rewatch it.

    DaveGR, I think Yumi introduced herself in another section, she's in Bejing (hope I remember it right), the "Hot Spot" for SARS.
    Yumi, tells us some "hot" movies (Chinese) in mainland these days..

    Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-liang made a movie in 1998, I believe, called The Hole about the outbreak of a dangerous virus that forces people to stay in their homes as often as possible and wear face-masks if they must go out.

    Pretty bleak film ... let's hope the SARS condition doesn't reach the extremes detailed in that movie.

    Here's one, a little more self-contained than the current outbreak, but the theme is the same:

    THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN

    For two very good films about viruses and the like breaking out, I suggest David Cronenberg's first two feature films. The first, Shivers, involves a breakout that takes place completely inside an apartment building, which, sadly, has some similarity with SARS events. Cronenberg's second feature, Rabid, involves a viral breakout that makes an entire city go mad. Both are rather disturbing films, although I find Rabid to be better-made and all around rather more enjoyable. I do not know how widely available these films are in Beijing, Yumi, but good luck tracking them down.

    I wish I knew some Chinese to give Yumi a proper welcome, but the Babelfish translator gives me this translation for "greetings": 招呼

    Well first of all, anyone that can write in a language that doesn't even use the same characters as their native language is doing okay by me.

    But that doesn't mean we still can't have fun with the translation from time to time in a nice way. [​IMG]


    Outbreak and Andromeda Strain are both good examples, and both probably a little too real with the process for someone in China to comfortably watch at this point I would think.

    I guess we would count The Masque of the Red Death for this catagory as well. Also, The Seventh Seal.


    Yumi, are theaters a lot more empty now because of SARS?

    Yumi,

    How about giving us a 'SARS impact update' thread in the AFTER HOURS LOUNGE so we can try to understand what your part of the world is going through. Plus it would help us big city folk prepare if it were to truly spread (on the record I tend to think not as rapidly as film diseases).
