This is about a rival between professional athletic deep divers. It’s also a tale of one athlete who is thought to be a fish, he can hold his breath longer than any human. I find this film to be tranquil and serene. In fact, it puts me in a trance every time I see it. I picture myself floating, thinking while not thinking, enjoying it without trying. I warmly invite you to enter the world of this film by listening to my 5 min film review. Then please leave me a comment. They are my lifeblood that keep me going as I do this.
