The Odyssey

Cinema

Directed by Jérôme Salle | 2016 | France | French with English subtitles | Starring Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou | 118mins | Certificate PG

Featuring a brilliant 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.

Taking in locations from across the globe, The Odyssey offers a complex portrait of its subject, a visionary who struggled to reconcile his boundless ambition with his roles as a father and husband.  Lambert Wilson brings a rakish charm and verve to Cousteau, a devil-may-care counterpoint to his wife, played by Audrey Tatou.

The eternal drama of the father-son dynamic is married to breathtaking scenes captured underwater, a glimpse of the world that fired Cousteau’s pioneering passion and spirit.  The biopic never veers from Cousteau’s darker elements, yet pays fine tribute to his undeniable legacy as one of France’s most enduring cultural icons.
