Synopsis:
Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family 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 (Lambert Wilson) 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. Despite their mutual love and admiration, conflict between The family is inevitable. But on their greatest adventure together they will find each other, before tragedy strikes.

Too Much Middle - The Odyssey review by JP

Spoiler Alert
28/12/2017

Beautiful underwater scenes, but, in general, a rather boring movie which went on much too long. A younger generation could gain some knowledge about the wonderful invention of the Aqua Lung, but did we need to know so much about the problems of the Cousteau family. The beginning and end of the film centre around son, Philippe, and he was a much better pilot than portrayed.

Blue Planet - The Pequil ! - The Odyssey review by JD

Spoiler Alert
05/02/2018

Enjoyed this movie a lot !

Very interesting story, based on the life of Jacque Cousteau , who I remember from tv days, with beautiful underwater photography ( wonderful images when they swim with the whales ).

It’s long, but that allows them to explore in some detail the early life of Jacque and his son Phillipe .

Fierce severe financial difficulties results in father and son taking up the baton of Environmental Concern, 40 years before Blue Planet did the same thing !

It does not hold back on being a hatchet job on various family members, I just hope it is all true ?

Beautiful and necessary - The Odyssey review by CSF

Spoiler Alert
01/11/2018

This film is a must because it shows that, at last, someone has realised the danger of plastic and the necessity of Ecology. I didn't know Cousteau was the first to see that. The pictures are beautiful and we see all the sufferings, the fights, the sacrifices behind the glamour.
