First, sorry for my poor English, as it is not my native language. The movie is a rare gem in Argentine filmography. Thrillers, action and movies that are mainly on complex machines are not typically filmed or produced by Latin American countries, even when the subject of the movie may have taken place in these latitudes (Alive! was filmed by Canadians in Canada on an epic true story that took place in the Argentinian-Chilean Andes). So, this is a denounce of the epidemic corruption in the Argentina of the 90', told by the man that plays as himself and revives for us some of the same ordeals he lived in real life when he was an airline captain. THIS is the unique thing about this movie. It is very well done, and as pilot, I can tell that the technical side is perfect. No cheap or even expensive mock ups. All is real. The simulator sessions are simulator sessions, and the airborne scenes are filmed during real flying in the cockpit (except a passenger cabin short scene, that I read was filmed in a crew training mock up). Excellent photography that immerse the spectator in places that earth bound mortals do not usually visit. No wonder why this movie won so many prizes: apart from the political and critical intentions, it is a good example that excellent products of this kind can be made without zillions.
