Donasi SUKARELA

Di balik satu kali penerbangan yang terasa biasa bagi kita yang sering terbang, ada sejuta kesibukan di belakang layar, yang harus saling saling mengait dalam sebuah sistem yang sempurna. Seorang kopilot baru bernama Suzuki dan pramugari baru Saito harus jungkir balik mengalami sendiri keriuhan itu, dengan segala suka dan dukanya. Ketika sistem maharumit itu terganggu sedikit saja, masalah bisa merembet, dan para kru ini pulalah yang harus memutar otak dan otot untuk menyelesaikan masalah. Semua demi keselamatan dan kenyamanan penumpang.

 

Happy Flight adalah bagian dari genre yang mungkin khas Jepang, yaitu oshigoto (tempat kerja): drama —dan/atau komedi— di balik layar sebuah dunia kerja. Bagai sebuah cerminan dari budaya kerja Jepang, baik di serial televisi, film maupun komik, genre oshigoto mengedepankan detil lika-liku profesional, sementara drama percintaan dan hubungannya menempati lapis kedua.

HAPPY FLIGHT revolves around Kazuhiro Suzuki, a young inexperienced co-pilot, and Etsuko Saito, a young cabin attendant. Both of them are making their first international flight on board Flight 1980, a charter bound for Honolulu from Tokyo. Suzuki must prove himself to his examiner, Harada, a tough experienced pilot; while Saito must prove herself to her Cabin Manager, Yamazaki, who intimidates even her more experienced colleagues. Things are going fairly well for Suzuki and Saito until there is a on-board computer malfunction that forces Flight 1980 to go back to Tokyo. Things get more complicated when a typhoon just about to hit Tokyo.

 

In a glance, HAPPY FLIGHT might be a typical Japanese comedy that centers on a working environment (oshigoto). However, thanks to nearly two years of researching the airline industry, director Shinobu Yaguchi does not only tell a funny story, but also a story that is very grounded in reality. It would make portions of the film an excellent training video, from mastering correct take off procedures to dealing with abusive passengers.

Ulasan

Japan’s feel-good maestro Shinobu Yaguchi aims high and comes in for a safe landing

with “Happy Flight,” a succulently played ensembler centered on an accident-prone journey

from Tokyo to Honolulu. Neither “Airport” nor “Airplane!,” though marbled with drama and comedy, pic navigates a huge cast and multiple subplots with consummate ease and

not a second of downtime, prior to a very Japanese, we’re-all-one-big-family finale.
