I am one of the people who commute to work by train. Now, with all the buzz about Swine Flu, each time someone sneezes on the train, everybody is shuffling in their seats. Or is it just me seeing things? This film by Christine Rabette reminds everyone worried about germs that also laughter is extremely contagious, even in a commute train. And don’t they say that laughter is the best medicine?
The film “Merci!” won a Golden Wave for best Short Film in 2003, so it’s not really fresh, but I found it pretty up to date nevertheless. The film also reminded me of a research project I read about some months ago: A long time survey found that happiness is contagious and therefore, even strangers may cheer you up. Just as you and I can cheer up strangers 😉
