when it seems that an airplane is about to fall, due to a problem with the engines, passengers remember the most important moments of their lives.
I don't think this film will ever receive five votes. For all I know, it was released only in Brazil. I saw it a few years after it opened, in a rerun, and I was only 10 at that time. Even so it made quite an impression on me. Probably because it reminded me of "Phone Call From a Stranger", a fine Fox drama with Bette Davis, Michael Rennie and Keenan Wynn, where the action also took place in a plane. Of course, "Phone Call" was much superior to this modest Brazilian production. But the acting was quite good, especially the performance of Jardel Filho, at the beginning of his career. In the late sixties this actor would star in two of the best Brazilian films of all times, "Terra em Transe" (directed by Glauber Rocha) and Joaquim Pedro de Andrade´s "Macunaima".
