Touching, truly and worthy

Before I became a doctor (surgeon), my heart push me to become a movie director. I love movies, but I love science too. Anyway, a good movie for me have to put together entertainment and a message, Sorry for that doesn't think that way, but the great films have to give something good for the life. And this movie does that. In fact, it deliver the most deep discussion I find the world gets into nowadays: the clash between man versus technician, the heart versus mind, the love versus rationalism, the kindness versus productivity. We have achieve great accomplishes in technology, (medical technology in this context), but I aways ask myself: Is that bring some relief for human problems? The clowns showed in this movie are one of the "goldest" hearts I ever seen. They simply care for the real problems of people. They really care. They DO GOOD. The world needs this kind of people.
