I’m listening to one of my favorite songs. This movie made me shed many tears while watching it in a theater alone. I even got mad at some moviegoers for giggling at the scenes where many people were falling off the ship.
I shouldn’t blame them for being insensitive to the human sufferings. The reason I was very emotional because I was a boat person.
Twenty years have passed since I watched and loved the movie. Never in my life had I thought of recreating the scenes where people are dying in the sea for my next book. Life is interesting. You just never know where it takes you one day.
