In memory of Jacques Cousteau

Reading time: 1 minute

This evening my Dad and I went to see Wes Anderson’s fantastic The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

It seems difficult to go wrong with anything with Bill Murray in it these days.

I can really recommend it, it felt like a cross between one of my favourite films Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue) and Tim Burton’s work.

And having grown up in Brazil (briefly when very young) and Lisbon (my parents lived there for most of my teenage years) it was amazing hearing David Bowie’s songs in Portuguese played superbly by Seu Jorge forming the basis for the soundtrack.

It’s definitely made me want to dust off my PADI certificate and see some more underwater life.
