Aroview: A shimmering yet unvarnished biopic of pioneering Frenchman Jacques Cousteau, who invented the aqualung and went on to become a world-famous global mariner through his American-backed television show.

Neatly condensing a thirty-year timeframe, the film brings satisfying insight to his passion as an adventurer and conservationist and his flaws as a family man, but mostly serves as a fittingly spectacular tribute to his professional legacy and legend.
