Banzai

A FILM BY Claude Zidi


Synopsis

Michel Bernardin works for Planète Assistance, an insurance company which instantly sends help to travellers no matter where in the world they may be. Michel is office bound, which suits him because he is terrified of flying. Ironically, his fiancée, Isabelle is an air hostess, although she has promised Michel she will give up her job since they are soon to be married. After upsetting his employer Michel finds himself in the front line, travelling all over the world to help distressed customers. Meanwhile, Isabelle is forced to continue flying until she works out her contract. The couple resort to an increasingly elaborate charade to conceal from one another what is happening.
