Picture : Audrey Tautou and Lambert Wilson in L'Odyssée 

All aboard the Calypso, Commander Cousteau's famous oceanograhic ship, to discover the seabed and frozen shores of Antarctica. 

In this tremendous romantic film, The Odyssey, the inescapable Pierre Niney and Audrey Tautou take on a moving, seductive and breathtaking performance by Lambert Wilson. The feature film will be unveiled in preview in Beijing, October 13, for the closing ceremony of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environnement, in Changsha the 14th October, and in Shanghai the 15th October.

The Odyssey, besides being an incredible biographical reconstruction, is an ode to ecology in the name of the protection of the oceans, as well as a critique of the shopping mall society. Jérôme Salle’s taut realization, the splendor of the images, the rhythmic editing and the mesmerizing soundtrack accompany actors in turn comical and elegant. 

Jérôme Salle is a French film director and screenwriter. He directed the films Anthony Zimmer, the Belgian comic book adaptation Largo Winch and its sequel Largo Winch II. His 2013 film Zulu was selected as the closing film at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The film The Tourist directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, was based on Jérôme Salle's screenplay for Anthony Zimmer and grossed US$278 million worldwide. His latest movie The Odyssey is a tribute to the famous French naval officer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, with prominent actors like Lambert Wilson, Audrey Tautou and Pierre Niney.
