A journey into the depths of the ocean, Atlantis is Besson’s triumphal entry into non-verbal documentary. Eschewing narrative interference, Besson collaborates with composer Eric Serra and cinematographer Christian Petron and travels the globe to capture the grace and beauty of such diverse aquatic wildlife as Australian great white sharks, giant manta rays, Bahamian dolphins and sea snakes in the Seychelles. Divided into thematic movements akin to the Disney classic Fantasia, it serves not so much as a documentary than as a meditative journey.
