Setting sail across three decades, Jérôme Salle’s dazzling biopic follows real-life celebrity oceanographer Jacques Cousteau’s life; one rich in accomplishments and teeming with as much turmoil as the majestic underwater wonderland which he explored.

It is 1943 and the eccentrically ambitious naval officer Cousteau (Lambert Wilson) dreams only of adventure and it is his magnificent new invention of the Aqua-Lung which will 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 would dazzle audiences worldwide. However, his success comes at a cost, as his wife Simone (Audrey Tatou) 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 the human race’s relationship with the sea forever.
