The Big Blue - Locations?
My favourite film of all time is easily "The Big Blue". I have the short VHS version but love the "Version Longue" with the extra dives and scenes which really explain why Jaques has to go back in the end and find his mermaids.  Do any of you know the locations? I would love to visit those magical places.

No - The Big Blue is not this!
No - The Big Blue will be remembered for much longer than this one.

You clearly don't know it!

True I've never heard of it, but how many movies called The Big Blue have a main character named Jaques? lol

It's also the only thing that matched on IMDB.

Yeah that sounds exactly like the Besson film - Le Grand Bleu, which was released as The Big Blue: Version Longue in the UK.  Think I got the US release.

I think you got Johnny's signature, which includes Into The Blue, mixed up with the link to IMDB that he provided to you for the film The Big Blue. Try and be a little more courteous to those offering the help that you asked for, even if it may be incorrect...which in this case it was not.

Le Grande Bleu is indeed the original french title for what is known in the US (and I would suspect other English speaking countries) as The Big Blue.  It's almost a literal translation so there can't be much of a question there.  I have seen Le Grande Bleu and it is clearly the movie that he was asking about.

Hey sorry!   I apologise if you thought I was being rude!   I did not mean to appear abusive and I sincerely apologise!  I was laughing as I typed my reply thinking you were replying to me in a jokey way!
Sorry again.

Jon
