The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou and his crew - Team Zissou - set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure.

They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot who may or may not be Zissou's son, a beautiful journalist assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and Zissou's estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor. They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping and bankruptcy

Oh and why did I post this? well...

The original script called for the pirates to be Indonesians but since there weren't enough of an Indonesian population in Italy where this film was shot, it was changed to Filipinos.

I guess the writers haven't met our politicians yet...
