I guarantee British audiences will come out knowing more about the great but flawed man than they did going in.

Jérôme Salle's big-budget biopic L'Odyssée is at its best when recreating Cousteau's oceanic adventures.

Its staid narrative is so monotonous, however, that even the shots of undersea life become a little dull: it's all just one fin after another.

Thankfully, the underwater scenes are beautifully shot - a sequence where cocky Philippe is surrounded by killer sharks is almost worth the price of admission alone.
