Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew - Team Zissou - set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot, who may or may not be Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), a beautiful journalist (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and his estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston).

I'm a bit surprised at the negative reviews of others. I loved this film and have watched it several times, and would list it as one of my favorites.

Just outside Reality - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
13/11/2008

This film is brilliant. There are two American directors who i have taken a real interest in. Wesw Anderson is one of them. Some people do not like his style of film making, i love it. If you liked Rushmore, if you liked The Royal Tenembaum's, this film is for you. If you didn't, maybe steer clear.

The film follows Steve Zissou, a documentary film-maker, avenging the life of his colleague who was eaten by a mysterious multi-coloured shark. There are a catalogue of great characters characters, one of which (Owen Wilson) is thought to be, although probably isn't, Steve's son. Plus a soundtrack, by Sea Jorge, of Bowie songs translated into Portuguese,

The fantastic Steve Zissou - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
24/04/2009

I have now watched this film numerous times and it is one that requires repeated viewings to fully appreciate how good it is. Having said that I find myself being drawn back to it time and time again. This is a must for any Wes Anderson fan and in my opinion his best work. Bill Murray is at his best with great support from Owen Wilson and Willem Dafoe. The humour is very subtle and perhaps a little offbeat so if you like that sort of thing this is one for you. The film may seem a little slow paced to some but I feel this is down to giving you the chance to really get to know the characters. All in all i great , amusing film.
