Directed by: JÉRÔME SALLE
Starring: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou, Vincent Heneine
Jérôme Salle’s dazzling biopic will sweep you up in its sails as it follows the chaotic life of celebrity oceanographer Jacques Cousteau; one rich in accomplishments, yet teeming with turmoil.

It is 1943 and the eccentrically ambitious naval officer Cousteau (Lambert Wilson) dreams of adventure. His magnificent new invention of the Aqua-Lung promises to bring him just that. Newly armed with the ability to breathe underwater for long periods of time, Cousteau dedicates his life’s work to his obsession with the sea, becoming the first to create underwater films that dazzle audiences worldwide.

His success comes at a cost, however, as his wife Simone (Audrey Tautou) and sons Philippe (Pierre Niney) and Jean-Michel (Benjamin Lavernhe) struggle to keep up with the stormy seas of Cousteau’s fierce and unfailing determination, the ultimate price of which is yet to come.

Through a dazzling array of global exploration locations, we undertake this lyrical journey almost as if a member of Cousteau’s crew, experiencing the epic highs and excruciating lows of this pioneer’s astounding career which changed humanity’s relationship with the sea forever.
