From 1949 to 1979, thirty years in the life of captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the famous researcher, scientist, inventor, filmmaker whose greatest achievement is to have made the general public more curious - and accordingly closer - to the sea. A genius, a leader of men and a charismatic opinion maker, Cousteau was not without defects, his being unfaithful to ever-supportive wife Simone for example or else his vainglory..., but let him who is without sin cast the first stone. The spectator leaves Cousteau in mid-1979 at the worst time of his life: his favorite son, Philippe, has just died in the crash of a plane he was piloting. The dashing conqueror of the sea has suddenly become a broken old man, tempted to discouragement but his eldest son Jean-Michel is by his side to help him overcome his grief and go on with his mission...Written by

This film shows his personal life and how he got funding for his expedition and family struggles. An important movie telling the true story how Jacques Cousteau help discover another world not in space but under the sea. This was an important moment in our history and as important as the moon landing,but most people just don't see it that way. He saw a hidden world and filmed it to show the word, Both him and Émile Gagnan developed the Aqua-Lung before that divers were connected through free-flowing air systems where divers were connected to the surface and lacked the freedom to film. The new method opened up the world under the oceans. Jacques and his family also pioneered marine conservation. He launched a petition campaign in 1990 to save Antarctica from mineral exploitation and the Cousteau Society continues his work today.
