I don't know how much coverage this movie has received outside of Switzerland. I went to see it last night at the cinema and loved it. It's a somewhat melodramatic dramatisation of the events of september and october 2001 which saw the Swissair fleet grounded as the money ran out, and the abortive attempts to rescue the whole enterprise.
The film is pretty OTT but enthralling nonetheless.

Has anyone outside Switzerland heard of it ?

Not been seen so far in Audi Sarabia, but then it's hardly surprising as cinemas (*1) are banned here (*2)

*1 - "Movie Theatres" to the CB

*2 - You'd never know what the guys in the long white frocks and the gals in the long black frocks woul dbe getting up to in the back row after the lights go down!

Yes!

It's a country somewhere in Europe.

Whose population seem to do very nicely outside the EU (although surrounded by it)
