Enzo Maiorca

  1. Claude Besson, Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue), France, 1987. French auteur Luc Besson’s classic was inspired by the exploits  of  two deep-sea diving champions: Maiorca and Jacques Mayol (played by Jean Reno and Jean-Marc Barr) However, Besson could not persuade Maiorca to play not his own fathjer  but that of Jacques. So Besson cast his own father.  This  would hjave been even mnore suitable when Luc  had considered playing Jaques, himself. Well, he was also a deep-sea diver –  which is the how and why of the film in the first place.
