Featuring a gleaming French cast including Audrey Tautou, director Jerome Salle takes us on a voyage through the life of legendary French oceanographer, environmentalist and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau.
Lavish, breath-taking and impressive, The Odyssey takes in some of Cousteaus finest adventures across the globe as he pioneered the passion and spirit that brought humans closer to underwater worlds. Yet, for all its beauty, the film also explores the man behind the icon, and his flaws as he struggles to balance ambition with his role as a father, husband and visionary.
Salles biopic never veers from Cousteaus darker elements, yet pays fine tribute to his undeniable legacy as one of Frances most enduring cultural icons.
