    Link: The First 5 Minutes of Blindness - A city is ravaged by an epidemic of instant ``white blindness``. Those first afflicted are quarantined. Cool premise.

    City wide "white blindness" is called "Minneapolis in a blizzard" and it happens every year.

    How can this be a cool premise?

    yellowsquare....shut up, please.

    Minneapolis winters are about as bad as Toronto winters....which I would kill to have.

    Come to North Bay or go to Cold Lake, Alberta and tell me your winters suck...

    WE HAD SNOW TODAY!!! Not enough to put anything on the ground, but it snowed FFS....

    I hate winter.

    It`s just not as fun without the man-eating alien plants. A day of the triffids remake is needed imo.

    "Minneapolis winters are about as bad as Toronto winters"

    I never said it sucked. I said blizzards happen every year. I`m sure there are places with much heavier snow.

    Yay for deadly Canadian winters.

    It`s the name of the movie.

    And when that guy drove off, I thought he was stealing the car. I guess I just expect that behavior from people....

    actually the plot to the movie is that they quarantine all of the people afflicted by this disease, and this one woman`s husband is one of the ones who is quarantined, and she pretends to be infected so she can be with him. she also tries to help the people escape from the quarantine cuz i guess they`re not treated well or something

    smaartbomb, from what I can tell, they`re quarantined in a local asylum, and basically abandoned to let them die...

    This made me want to watch the movie just that much more now.

    I wouldn`t mind being blind. I would become ridiculously famous as a guitarist just because i am blind. Just like Ray Charles.

    As "enchantment" said

    This is based on Jose Saramago`s book, "Ensayo sobre la ceguera" (Blindness). Published on 1995

    This is a GREAT book, one of the best I`ve ever read. I hope Jose gets some money out of this, because i`m sure lots of people will see the movie and say "Now i don`t have to read the book"

    Wich is stupid, because we all know what happends when books become movies... They suck and ruin the book for all of us

    It`s actually spelled "Ensaio sobre a Cegueira". Its Portuguese, not Spanish.

    A great book, indeed.

    This movie looks really cool. The trailers made it seem like the government is somehow involved with the epidemic of blindness that occurs in the film, but I bet it`ll end up being trees and poo.
