The Big Blue

M
France, 1988
Genre: Drama, Romance
Language: French, Italian
Director: Luc Besson
Starring:  Jean-Marc Barr, Rosanna Arquette, Jean Reno
What's it about?
The Big Blue charts the competition and friendship between Jacques (Jean-Marc Barr) and Enzo ((Jean Reno) first in their youth, and then when they meet again at the World Free Diving Championships in Sicily years later. A dreamy adolescent, Jacques has grown into a solitary man, caught between the solidity of the real world and the spiritual beckoning of 'the big blue'—and in particular the dolphins swimming below. He possesses a unique connection to the sea, the ability to slow his heartbeat and circulation on deep dives, a phenomenon previously only observed in whales and dolphins. Enzo, however, has become the World Champion at his sport with a very different approach. Their rivalry reignited, the pair spur each other on to deeper and deadlier dives.
