The movie was really difficult emotionally for me. Honestly I always cry like a baby while watching this kind of movies. The part of it which shocked me the most was “trading” with percentage of chances girl to stay alive. Do numbers can really help us make a judgement about risking the innocent life? More than 50% – no, we cannot risk, less than 50% – okey, we can do this. The numbers work as justification in this case, but do they really change anything? It is still somebody’s life.
The topic of universal moral grammar is very interesting. What was the most suprising for me is that our emotions don’t really affect on our judgements, only on behaviour. I have never thought about that way before.
