A technical failure has endangered the lives of the people on board Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. Written by Production

The pilots state that one of the landing gear can't retract. The landing gear indicator - shown in excellent close-up - has three green lights and one red - this means three gear are down and fully locked and one is retracted. A proper combination would be three red and one flickering light. See more »

Unfunny and Disappointing
7 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

In a flight from Spain to Mexico, the pilots and crew are bi-sexual or gay and all have sex problems. When they learn that the landing gear is stuck, they try to find an airport for an emergency landing. A few passengers discover that they may die and some of them contact their families; others have sex.

"Los amantes pasajeros" is an unfunny and disappointing comedy by Pedro Almodóvar. The storyline is silly; the characters and non-likable and not funny; most of the jokes are about sex among gays. The cameo of Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz is limited to a couple of minutes only to give their names to the credits. The most impressive is that after 90 minutes running time, I was unable to laugh. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Os Amantes Passageiros" ("The Passengers Lovers")
