Storyline

The demise of airline Swissair in 2001 was a huge blow to Switzerland's economy and to the country's morale. It was a sad day for Swiss history when the airline's fleet was grounded on 2 October 2001. "Grounding" is set during the last days of the doomed airline, and tells the story of manager Mario A. Corti's unhappy fate, the last, unlucky CEO at the traditional airline company, as well as of all those nameless people who lost almost everything in the maelstrom of Swissair's downfall: their job, home and their belief in Switzerland.

Excellent movie with valuable corporate lesson
11 February 2006 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

As stated in the Financial Times, this fast paced movie is an excellent lesson for companies. A MUST SEE for all Swiss and Germans and all former frequent flyers of Swissair.

Great casting (for those who know the real-life protagonists), convincing acting and script (although schmaltzy at times) and thrilling from start to end with a mix of news coverage documentation and movie. The simplification of the characters is permissible as are some of the lapses, like showing car models that didn't exist at the time.

I hope the movie gets some international attention and will be synchronized in English (swissgerman in the original) or at least get subtitles.
