The film is a mystery about a rare, almost mythical people who are willing to go to the end. In friendship, love and in the accomplishment of the most important, intimate.

Two boy competing in who deeper dives, the course of the film become men, mastered all the techniques of the art of deep sea diving. To by the time rivals have left, because they have no one closer than each other. But no nothing is more important than victory. And she will be present until will be a competition between them. Who dare to enter the blue abyss deeper to feel her harmony, become part? Bright, bold, charismatic Enzo (Jean Reno) — the undisputed leader and soul of the company or the philosopher-dreamer, Jacques (mark Barrel)? And than he will pay for the victory?

The film of the same charm, as all the films of Luc Besson: the mysterious, romantic and leaving under look for a few days.

The cast is terrific, the camera work — perfect.

"Big blue" distracts from the nice and steady life, and I want to freeze in awe of the beauty and unpredictability of the world, to think about your personally designed each blue abyss.

One of my favorite movies! No what else do not I saw the sea SO! To Express that the depth to talk about the sea like it — your second home, and all believed, and felt that same — you just have to love it. To the extent to want to dissolve in back again...

I love this movie and because he is truthful. Life is shown for what it is without a special effects stupid problems in the script. In believe, — this not the main purpose of each of the Director?

And circumstances, and the behavior of the characters, and plot — slow, but this informative, forcing the voltage to expect the next moment. Everything is logical and transparent. Everything is clear and even though it hurts from this truth — not all life as we would — the story is very close to me. Always thought that I was there are too.

The main character — Jacques — a copy of my first love, so with the"Blue abyss" from me special associations and a special attachment. Have we had just exactly the same relations, the events developed similarly: it also left when I was me as much needed. Surprisingly, I looked this movie as after all over, my grieving was Tilos...

And once again sure it often happens that the Director — wittingly or unwittingly — script shows the simple truth. Metaphorically, veiled, but truth lurks even in fiction. Even sometimes in the most stupid invention of higher meaning still have...

And here is seen very clearly: life takes us to which we are very attached as saying no nothing is more important to be a Man that whatever happens. Being attached to something or someone, we cover the purpose and true meaning of life — and, therefore, lose everything and start again properly navigate... All the main characters have lost that they are expensive. Because she is very attached. If they loved each other stronger than their ambitions, their truth, their plans for the future, no one would not dead... And sea, like the universe, everything will take, absorb, all would make up for about all is silent, and will remain. We go. The sea will remain...

It is a rare masterpiece. Diamond

From the first frame you .. dive In Maritime beauty life and even Wikipedia (you want details).. Not for whom secret Jacques Mayol and Enzo Molinari were consultants for this film. Outstanding masters of free-diving, the founders. About them can speak to talk endlessly. And and is done in the best way! The story of real People (with big "L"), but with art fictional "lace" around his life. Incredible photography, paint, music — you look catch yourself thought that this is a film in 1988, and understand what technical equipment of the time, ranging from diving equipment to a shooting... Said that the Hatch itself has been scene filming, although from doctors have a prohibition on underwater journey with the 17. The ban, which put an end to a child's dream (Luke grew up in a family of professional divers) and all my childhood and adolescence dreamed of becoming a marine biologist. The dream does not come true. But most likely then, we didn't know "our" seasoned cinematic Hatch:). The film is imbued with nostalgia for his childhood, reverence for the profession of diver.

There are three versions of this film, the main differences — duration, soundtrack — miscellaneous us version in French. Incidentally, "big Blue" got two "Starov" in 1989 the categories "Best sound" and"Best soundtrack".

The film definitely recommend! The film is about love. Have all the characters in this film have their own love. Beautiful and limitless.
