Fascinating look at the events leading up to the grounding of Swissair in October 2001. The first part of the film is a documentary with the real people, then the story starts with actors. It makes the grounding personal by interweaving the impact on a family where both parents work for the airline. It is convincing, but friends in Switzerland tell me the film angers them because they feel the grounding could have been avoided. The problem here for American viewers is the film is presented in German (or French and Italian, the languages of the country) and with subtitles in the same. No English option. Perhaps if it is distributed in the US they'll add an English track or titles.
