This film is very underrated. When I was reading the rather flippant comments that others had made about this film -- this film which was made for TV, this film which is currently unavailable in the US, this film which I had to send away to THAILAND to get -- I couldn't help wondering whether the film they were writing about was was the SAME film that I had watched. This film is the only (fictional) film I know of that deals with the possibility of a pandemic of influenza. Influenza was -- and remains -- the biggest threat to mankind of all diseases, including plague, ebola, you name it. This film is more credible in many ways than most other films which deal with the possibility of pandemic disease. Its premises about disease are correct; its handling of the "Russian North" is good; its portrayal of "south-of-the-border" matters is quite reasonable. This film is definitely worth watching for people who are interested in the SUBJECT MATTER of the film, as opposed to whether big-name actors appear in it or its mushy love scenes, etc.
