Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family, Jacques, his wife Simone and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel, live in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean Sea. By day they dive, by night they watch the stars. It’s paradise on earth. But Jacques is never content. He hungers for the adventure of the undersea world, and believes in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the aqualung, his recently acquired vessel, the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers led by his wife, Simone, Jacques is ready to cross the world’s oceans. Ten years later, back from the boarding school, Philippe finds his father greatly altered as an international celebrity. Jacques cannot see it yet, but Philippe already understands that progress and pollution have begun to lay waste to the submarine world. But father and son’s voyage to Antarctica may be their greatest adventure yet.

    A relatively well produced intimate Insider's View of the Cousteau family and their personal Journeys.
    I found it to be quite revealing, and a bit difficult to watch, bit depressing, more than a bit
    During my years as a scuba instructor and dive store owner, on a couple different occasions oh, I had the pleasure of meeting Jacques Cousteau, Philippe Cousteau, Jean Michael Cousteau, and Falco.

    I am glad Jacques Cousteau had the epiphany with his son that he experienced. His change of heart regarding the oceans and wanting to protect them inspired a whole generation of people. We probably have some of the organizations we have today because of his inspiration. As a child, I also enjoyed his films.

    I did not mind the captioning, any film worth watching, that happens to be captioned, is well worth my time. I am not so ethnocentric as to expect every film to be in my own language. The beauty of YOU TUBE is I can run back the film to catch any action I might have missed reading the captioning.

    Thanks for posting! It was wonderful!! Foreign film makers do not be afraid to submit your stuff to American and to the internet even if it needs to be closed captioning in other languages! It is good for all of us to learn to read faster and take in the knowledge more deeply by a higher level of concentration. I remember more, when I use closed captioning. I use it even on my films in my own language!! 5/5 stars!! God Bless!

    As a child growing up. Watching Jacque Cousteau and his many adventures brought me much joy and love for the ocean. I live in Santa Cruz Ca and watching his amazing documentaries made me realize I needed to respect and conserve my surroundings. Growing up in the 70s watching these amazing films were so cutting edge for it's time and it made people think what humanity to do this planet. I find it shocking that the destruction has gotten worse. If anyone back then watched these amazing films you'd know what I'd mean.

    Tyvm have a great day

    I Really enjoyed this film. There is also another great film about Jacques Cousteau, "The Life Aquatic" It's wonderful, but a completely different parody/comedic tone to it, despite remaining surprisingly accurate to the real Cousteau.

    Oh crap, another close caption show that makes me missing the action as I read…I do enjoy what this family has done for the OCEANS OF OUR PLANET & being one of the FIRST to show the POLLUTION of our seas!!!

  • I was swimming full out by age,3 He inspired me to scuba by age,10. I was doing 4-5 minute free dives by 14 or 15 to 80+ feet. I wanted to become a marine biologist until i met like 5 in a motivating tables different resturaunts in thecearlyvreagan years so I became a commercial diver in 1983 and went back into it in 1991 . In 1993 I had a motorcyclexwreck after diving hard hat construction for TX A&M and was hit by a car on my motorcycle in Houston Dec 12 1993 at 230 am by a big and run. Was hemiplegic and hard right arm amputated in 96. Kept building and riding cycles till aboutt 2010. I miss,the both more than anything. I think I know would rather be dead without my bikes and diving. Scuba is ok but its not really diving. A Kirby superlight 17 breathing 60/40% heliox mix in the dark in 240 ft of water. THAT was,diving. Trying to cone up on schedule to make a,surdo2 decomp schedual with and idiot greennbtendercwh keeps,bouncing. you Until you swear to drown him…This was diving. Riding my Harley back to Houston at the end of the week still in my wetsuit, just to stop by Hooters and say hello to Lisa Bolman. Life is,not fair. And hello Lisa Boleman

  • The Calypso II would have been a better title for my taste. 
    Give this movie a chance there are some very good performances from the three main characters, sets, costume, and direction is excellent.
    I think it really captured the period perfectly from my experience.

  • The 1st family of S.C.U.B.A and the reason I became a diver too. I fell in love with their undersea world I saw on TV as a child. 🚢

  • Like all humans he was flawed, but he gave the world a priceless contribution. Grew up on his films, the adventures a little kid dreams of. We must do more to protect our oceans, earth, and the living creatures we share it with.

  • I really liked the film. I’m old enough to have seen most all the film he did, they were all great.
    I fell upon this movie by accident, so glad I did.
