But, the result wasn’t great as expected. Sex, disco and absurdities. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: Carlos Areces as Fajas. Paz Vega as Alba. The original Spanish title is Los amantes pasajeros, which has a double meaning of “The fleeting lovers” and “The passenger lovers”. A comedy without any laughs Despite the film’s playfulness, it’s still quite clear that we’re in the hands of a master who takes the work seriously, if not the material or his characters.
Carmen Machi as Concierge. It’s got a few too many pointless digressions that keep the film from being as enjoyable as I hoped, but Almodovar’s intentions were clearly to make nothing more than a goofy comedy and I suppose on that level it works.

A mescaline-alcohol-and-panic-fueled orgy of confessional dialogue, sex acts, arguments, confessional monologues, and more sex acts.
The flight attendants pzsajeros 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 wmantes passengers, while they wait for a solution.
In tense wait for a solution, the majority of the passengers are drugged to prevent an outbreak of panic. Campy and proudly absurd, I’m So Excited!

A comedy without any laughs Sex, disco and absurdities.
Despite the film’s playfulness, it’s still quite clear that we’re in the hands of a master who takes the work seriously, if not the material or his characters. They are all in for the ride that could determine the rest of their lives and they all react the way they feel, they learned or frivolous, but very rarely the way we would expect!
