Blindness (2008) When a big city has a mysterious outbreak of blindness, the victims are quarantined by the government in a hospital without any medical care, treatment or hygiene. Among the first people affected by the so called "white blindness" are an ophthalmologist and his reluctant healthy wife who has not lost her sight but stays with him to help him in the difficult moment. The place immediately crowds and a group of criminals takes the power, demanding jewels and electronics first and sex later for the limited ratio of food they control.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [from trailer] Doctor's Wife: The only thing more terrifying than blindness is being the only one who can see.
  • [from trailer] Doctor: I can't see. I think I have the white virus.
  • King of Ward 3: I will not forget your voice! Doctor's Wife: And I won't forget your face!
  • [first lines] First Blind Man: I'm blind.
  • Man with the Black Eye Patch: I know that part inside you with no name, and that's who we are, right?
Movie Trivia:
  • Producer Niv Fichman became interested in the project back in 1999 when he and Don McKellar, who would write the script, flew to the Canary Islands to talk to the Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese author José Saramago about giving them the film rights to his book. One of Saramago's conditions was that the film must not be set in any recognizable countries.
  • Selected as the opening film at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
  • Portuguese Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, the author of the novel upon which the film is based, wanted to attend the premiere of the film at the Cannes Film Festival. His doctors didn't allow him to travel, so the director flew to Lisbon to show him the film.
  • In addition to cutting it, Julianne Moore dyed her signature red hair blonde for the film. This made her very uncomfortable because people were giving the new color so much attention.
  • Yûsuke Iseya wrote some of the Japanese dialogue.
