A collaboration between Captain Cousteau and Louis Malle, the film was crowned in glory, winning the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Festival in 1956, and an Oscar in 1957. Multicolored fish, sponge divers, forgotten treasures all the miracles to be found in the silent world of the tropical seas. Captain Cousteau takes the spectator on an undersea discovery, filming where no one had filmed before. Poignant, unusual and often very funny. This unsurpassed film is unforgettable.
