Description

The true story of Jacques Cousteau

Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family – Jacques, his wife Simone and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel – live in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean sea. By day they dive, by night they watch the stars. It's paradise on earth. But Jacques is never content. He lives and breathes adventure and believes absolutely in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the aqualung, his recently acquired vessel the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers he is ready to cross the world's oceans. Ten years later, back from boarding school, Philippe finds his father greatly altered – an international celebrity with megalomaniac dreams of grafting gills to humans and creating underwater cities. Jacques cannot see it yet, but Philippe already understands that progress and pollution have begun to lay waste to the marine world. Despite their mutual love and admiration, conflict between these two passionate men is inevitable.

Starring Lambert Wilson as Jacques Cousteau, Audrey Tautou as Simone, and Pierre Niney as Jean-Michel, THE ODYSSEY is a visually spectacular film.

  • The Adventure of Filming THE ODYSSEY

Critic Reviews:

  • “Sunbeams illuminating tropical fish, sea lions shimmying through a kelp forest – some of the underwater photography is gorgeous in Jérôme Salle's glossy French-language biopic of Jacques Cousteau.” – Times (UK)
  • “Cousteau lived an exciting, if sometimes tortuous life. But, while it's engagingly played by a solid cast, this respectful but hardly revelatory account lacks the narrative potency to recreate it.” – Empire Magazine
  • “Jérôme Salle's big-budget biopic L'Odyssée is at its best when recreating Cousteau's oceanic adventures.” – Irish Times
