Wealthy passengers fogged in at London's Heathrow Airport fight to survive a variety of personal trials.
Takes quite a while (nearly an hour) to get up to steam, but when it does it becomes quite gripping. Fine performances from Taylor and Burton who have amazing chemistry here and it was quite neat to see a young Maggie Smith in a nerdy supporting role.
Being someone who flies often it was interesting to see how airport security was before 9/11 and even before the hijackings that started in the 70s. You needed your passport and your vaccination records but pretty much everything else was kosher....even bringing a handgun to the airport!!
The final 15 minutes had me in tears, as most Liz Taylor films do but that may have had more to do with some personal poignancy I felt than the film itself.
Worth a watch if you can find it and have the patience for the slow establishment of the plot.
A star-studded cast play the rich and famous stranded at Heathrow due to flights being stopped because of thick fog. This causes life-changing events for many of them, played out as they wait for their flights to resume. This isn't a masterpiece but is very watchable.
Ļoti labs balans starp humoru un salkanumu, izstāstot nesaistītus četrus stāstus.
Decent ensemble drama all set in an important lounge.
