All Pedro Almodovar movies are perfect. Even the less-good ones. But I felt a very slight tingle of concern when this trailer indicated that I’m So Excited (a.k.a., Los amantes pasajeros) will take place almost entirely inside a plane. A 10.7.12 article by Cineuropa‘s Sergio Rios Perez says exactly that, adding that the story of this “very light comedy” happens “mostly from the moment a plane breaks down to the moment it manages to make an emergency landing.”
The ensemble cast includes Javier Camara, Cecilia Roth, Lola Dueñas, Raul Arevalo, Carlos Areces, Antonio de la Torre, Hugo Silva, Miguel Angel Silvestre and Blanca Suarez. Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Carmen Machi and Paz Vega have brief cameos.
