From 1949 to 1979, thirty years in the life of captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the famous researcher, scientist, inventor, filmmaker whose greatest achievement is to have made the general public more curious - and accordingly closer - to the sea. A genius, a leader of men and a charismatic opinion maker, Cousteau was not without defects, his being unfaithful to ever-supportive wife Simone for example or else his vainglory..., but let him who is without sin cast the first stone. The spectator leaves Cousteau in mid-1979 at the worst time of his life: his favorite son, Philippe, has just died in the crash of a plane he was piloting. The dashing conqueror of the sea has suddenly become a broken old man, tempted to discouragement but his eldest son Jean-Michel is by his side to help him overcome his grief and go on with his mission...Written by

Please forgive my language and spelling. I'm not native English.
Very good movie. Absolutely recommendable. Beautiful pictures, great cast, great story, great directing. My childhood hero. I watched M. Cousteau's brilliant movies on television with great passion as a kid, I collected stickers from a gas station with animals of the sea, to put into collectable sticker books from M. Cousteau. The movie shows the man behind the M. Cousteau I knew from the movies, the hard work, the humanity, and as every human M. Cousteau was not perfect. M. Cousteau is brilliantly played by M. Lambert Wilson, brilliant!
There's a bug though. The death of M. Philippe Cousteau is not reproduced correctly. I don't know why, but it irritated me and made me give the movie 7 and not 8 stars.
