  1. Thomas's rating of the film The Big Blue

    The real gift this film has to offer is the beautifully tight relationship and chemistry between the two leads, established right from the outset. The plot consists of a fairly generic melodrama set to a colourful backdrop of the sundrenched Mediterranean. All this together with some stunninging shot underwater scenes makes it an absorbing, languorous watch.

  2. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Big Blue

    JEAN-MARC BARR IS LOVE You go down to the bottom of the sea, where the water isn't even blue anymore, where the sky is only a memory, and you float there, in the silence. And you stay there, and you decide, that you'll die for them. Only then do they start coming out. They come, and they greet you, and they judge the love you have for them. If it's sincere, if it's pure, they'll be with you, and take you away forever

  5. Egoisms's rating of the film The Big Blue

    A beautiful, tender soap opera. Good pacing, never plodding, swaps between operatic hyperbole to insouciance, humour, romance. A perfect bittersweet ending. Great score. Though its characters are caricatures they're three-dimensional: much is gleaned from a laugh, a shrug, a look.

  9. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Big Blue

    Embraced as modern classic at the time, Besson's passion project now seems like folly. While his imagery is characteristically impeccable, from black & white evocations of childhood loss, to peerless underwater sequences & dreamlike ambience, the scattershot narrative is disruptive. It flits without connection between serious psychological study, tale of professional rivalry & goofy romance. All surface, no depth.

  10. Holly's rating of the film The Big Blue

    The extension version has too many scenes with dolphins and Jacques Mayol. Too long. Good movie in overall.

  11. CafeGradiva's rating of the film The Big Blue

    1,5 / troubling end, but... not deep enough for me :) *

  14. Adam GR's rating of the film The Big Blue

    When he came out of the Antarctic ice and walked past, I was in love. Jean-Marc Barr, such a stoic Pandora's box! Rosanna Arquette falling to her knees at the end and begging the one she loves TWISTED my heart. I was off the couch and crawling toward the tv by the time the credits rolled.

  15. PonTIX's rating of the film The Big Blue

    Bom filme sobre como o ser humano não consegue largar uma obcessão por mais estranha que pareça.

  16. Yunzhu's rating of the film The Big Blue

    a beautiful and poetic film, I like Reno in this film.

  17. DonToni's rating of the film The Big Blue

    Not a perfect film but emotionally extremely engaging. Both Reno and Barr are great here. You can sense and share Besson's love for the sea.

  18. Antoine Tremblay's rating of the film The Big Blue

    Never really like this one, Besson did better in the 90s.
