1946. Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his family live a dream life in their house overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. But Jacques yearns for adventures beneath the sea. With his invention, the aqualung, his vessel, the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers, he is ready to cross the world’s oceans. But is this odyssey worth the sacrifices? With stunning images, a haunting soundtrack and a superb cast including a magnetic Lambert Wilson as the famous ocean explorer, The Odyssey is worth the journey.
