Storyline

This movie is about a crew of a passenger plane and consists of two parts. The first part tells about personal lives of the characters, their successes and failures, relationships inside their families and between each others. The second part has them land the plane in the airport of a city called Bidri, which was damaged by an earthquake. They try to fly people to safety, but just as they land, another earthquake hits, and now the chances of a successful takeoff are slim... Written by Boris Shafir <shafir@hsi.com>

Pardon me, do you believe in God? Stop bleating like a goat!
6 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is excellent, surpassing my expectations in terms of the quality of the film-making and in terms of the depth of the story. Not to ruin the suspense, but the aviation difficulties of the film are more of a resolution than a starting point of the plot. The special effects could have been better, the women could have been less hysterically cruel, the ending could have had less Russian sentimental comic relief; but the movie is successful in telling a story about human beings. I would rate it even higher if the women weren't so shrewish, but that's because I like a bit of fantasy in the films I watch.
