Did You Know?

Goofs

SARS was spread by civet cats, not ordinary household cats as portrayed in the movie. Civet cats are more related to the mongoose and look nothing like felines. See more »

Not bad
4 June 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

To find this movie interesting, I think you've got to live in Toronto or at least Ontario. I couldn't picture myself watching this movie in it's entirety if the city captured by SARS was Los Angeles, Seattle, Atlanta or another place. Because I live in Toronto, and because I was here during the SARS crisis, it makes it interesting. Of course, this is no documentary. But I think it captures the state in which Toronto was in those summer months of 2003. Why us? When will it stop? We felt like pariah. And to make things worst, our very own Mel Lastman! But being from Toronto, I couldn't get pass the fact that they fictionalized almost everything, from the names of the doctors to the ones of the different hospitals affected.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on May 29th, 2005.
