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

It is stated that the aircraft can't get permission for an emergency landing at any airport. The problem with this is twofold. First, it's hard to find a reason why no Spanish airport would allow an emergency landing of an aircraft with damaged landing gear (it would be somewhat reasonable in case of, say, an epidemic outbreak aboard the plane, but not in the case of a mechanical malfunction). Second, even if the Spanish authorities for some convoluted reason won't give the crew a permission to land, a flight from Madrid to Mexico City has enough fuel on board to reach literally hundreds of available airports throughout Europe, including some of the largest airports in the world (Heathrow, Amsterdam-Schiphol, Paris-CDG, Frankfurt or even Istanbul-Ataturk) perfectly prepared to deal with an A340 with mechanical problems.

What do you expect when you go to the cinema to watch a movie? Laugh? Then this is your movie; if you are not a movie critic,this is your movie;if you are not looking for a masterpiece of all times,,,this is your movie. I saw this film yesterday in Madrid,I didn't expect too much of this film because the Spanish critics have said of this movie all the negative you can imagine,,,I only can say that I laughed many times (like the rest of the public),when it ended I wanted more and all the people at the theater watching the film applauded very much,,,Just a funny comedy with all the surrealistic situations Almodovar can imagine,with great performances of all the cast,and a really comical musical scene into the airplane by the crew that makes great this movie,,,,Give it a chance!! you will be not disappointed !
