Dive into The Life Aquatic with this 2004 film directed by Wes Anderson!
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou finds Steve (Bill Murray) surrounded by a hodgepodge of incredulous characters in his quest to document his revenge on the “jaguar shark” that ate his best friend Esteban (Seymour Cassel). The crew consists of a Sikh camera man, a safety expert / brazilian musician who sings David Bowie songs in Portuguese, a perpetually eating frogman, a topless script girl, a gorgeous pregnant reporter and unpaid college interns from the University of North Alaska. With his continued relevance and fortune precariously riding on this latest adventure, he braves pirates, his ex-wife Eleanor (Anjelica Houston), and Ned’s (owen Wilson) paternity question.
It is only upon confronting the beast that his life questions are ultimately answered as he decides to let it go, a move that not only makes his documentary a blockbuster and gains him worldwide recognition, but inspires a whole new generation of future Zissous.
