The Deepest Breath

Post by strapline »

This is a 1hr 50min film currently doing the rounds on Netflix for those on the forum that subscribe. It's a really engaging story about free diving (holding your breath and swimming down to crazy depths, over 100mtrs, and returning on the same single breath). It's also the story of a man and woman meeting and establishing a deep bond/perhaps more through the endeavour. It's really well made with a lot of drama, particularly the shallow water blackouts and the gripping ending. For fans of the Nims Purja '14 Peaks' doc, this is another big adrenalin dose. It's an opportunity to pull on those dive watches and feel part of the fraternity. :lol: :lol:

This was recommended to us and we watched last weekend.

It was as good as I had hoped. Bit slow at times!!

I didn’t have a dive watch on tho, so maybe that was the problem.

I'm halfway through the semi-comedy about the woman going on the hiking trip. I'll watch this one next, I think. Thanks for the recommendation. :D

Yeah, there were a couple of slower moments, but all in all I thought there was plenty of drama. PS. when watching anything of an aquatic nature diving wrist adornment is de rigueur. Snorkels and masks may be considered OTT. :lol:

I found it very entertaining, Drew. Pull out a cigar and an old fashioned. :clap:

Sorry, Des

I didn’t check my post. I meant to say it WASN’T as good as I had hoped.

That’s was quite interesting. What a fascinating sport. The one detail that struck me (and stuck with me) was the one about water pressure compressing the lungs to the size of a fist. How on earth does one dive so deep when that happens?! I can barely process the reality of diving deep, whether a free dive or scuba. It puts the 600 meters of the C60 into perspective!

This is on my 'to watch' list, I'll need to see if my wife fancies watching it with me though as sounds like something she'd enjoy too.

Yeah, the pressure/volume relationship is crazy. Any non solid airspace is compressible. If you took a beachball down to 100mtrs it would be a tenth of the size it is on the surface. Now imagine the sub that recently imploded visiting Titanic, it experienced 300atm's of pressure PSI. When a hairline crack appears in the hull you can imagine what happens, and how fast.

I liked the accompanying story too about how two quite different people came together and found happiness with each other. He had been very nomadic as if searching for something. It's a real shame events ended as they did.
