Trivia

Sébastien Nagel, real-life chairman of the world freediving agency AIDA, is a key character in the movie, however portrayed quite unflatteringly. Watching an early sneak review of the film left him quite angry about the depiction of himself, and reportedly the agency has initiated an official lawsuit (August 2004). He later retracted all his objections and apologized. See more »

it was pretty good actually
16 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Wow man you sound really angry! I really enjoyed the movie! I thought that the accents were very convincing and the film was made beautifully made!

I love diving and although the film seemed to take considerable creative licence, I was very entertained.

I especially thought the Greek photography was excellent and made the idea of taking a break there a sound idea.

Unlike the previous guy, I do suggest the movie to anyone who enjoys the sea and chick flick movies.

I agree that Adam Baldwin overplayed his hand but considering that this was a low budget movie... its a goodie.
