Jean Reno Biography


Le grand bleu/The big blue - filmcover - Jean Reno

Anyone who is a real fan of, Jean Reno, has got to have seen this great film with him, Jean Marc Barr and Roseanna Aquette in.

This is based on a true story, and if anything like Hollywood, probably very loosely based too.

Jean plays Enzo Molinari, whom in real life was called Enzo Maiorca, but for some reason it was changed for this film. He is a very exceptional man, he can hold his breath underwater for a very long time and has been able to do so since he was a child, and so can Jaques Myhol, J.M.B.
They have been friends all of their lives and the Sea facinates them both, so they are always in deep sea diving competitions competing with one another for the world's free diving recognition, which is also very dangerous.
Enzo comes across as being a very arrogant and stubborn man, but he ahs the best and strongest part in this film.

There are some very funny bits in this film, mostly from Jean Reno, and also some very bizarre and sad parts too.

The wonderful music by, Eric Serra, is also a perk of this film.

Make sure that you buy 'Le grand bleu - version longue', there is some really great scenes that were missed out of the film at first, and they are also incoporated them into the film, and not as extras, which is a real bonus.
