French filmmakers have tried to show that their legendary compatriot was not only outstanding, but also a controversial person, to live close to where it was extremely difficult. But it turned out they had the same love and respect to what publicly engaged Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his love around the world and especially in Russia.

The two-hour “Odyssey” — a story about family and career growth Cousteau, who all his life had to sacrifice everything: first to be able to do what you love, and then to return the meaning of life.

“Snowden” goes to the same lists the main financial failures of the year.
