The Deepest Breath – Netflix documentary movie [Reco]

Yesterday I watched a new Netflix documentary movie.

Official synopsis (with some spoilers):

Descending to remarkable depths below the sea on one single breath, Alessia Zecchini enters what she describes as the last quiet place on Earth. The Italian champion is determined to set a new world record in freediving, a dangerous extreme sport in which competitors attempt to reach the greatest depth without the use of scuba gear. Freedivers are often subject to blackouts upon ascent, necessitating the help of safety divers like Stephen Keenan, a free-spirited Irish adventurer who fell in love with the sport in Dahab, Egypt. Having formed a special bond on the freediving circuit, Alessia and Stephen train together so she can make an attempt on Dahab’s legendary Blue Hole and its challenging 85-foot-long tunnel 184 feet below the Red Sea. Their fates are inextricably bound together by a tragic event that ensues.

I didn’t know anything about these two and was totally surprised by the storyline and the ending.

The documentary is very interesting and quite moving… wasn’t expecting that.

And it has plenty of women in sexy smooth skin wetsuits 🙂

I highly recommend this one!

My Top 20 female action scuba scenes in one video – [Cliffhanger edition – TV/movies]

Most of you guys will have stumbled upon my “Hall of Fame” here by now.

I always wanted to make a video with all these scenes in it.

Last week I started the work on it and quickly realized that the video was going to get over 30 minutes long.

A pretty safe bet that the video wouldn’t stay for long on YouTube if it would be allowed at all.

Then I came up with the idea to make each segment from each scene much shorter and had the idea to make this cliffhanger edition/cut.

In this video, you will now find all my favorite 20 scenes. The order in the video is the order they are listed on my Hall of Fame page, which is in no particular order.

The number at the bottom is the listed number of the Hall of Fame.

In there, you will find the full version of each scene in case you wanna know how the scene actually ends 😉

I guess that most of you guys know most of the scenes already… but it’s a treat to have them all in one video.

The picture quality of each segment depends on the available source material.

Here you go:

So, which scene is your favorite? Or do you have multiple favorites?

How many of these 20 scenes did you know already?

What scenes would you have in a Top 20, Top 10, or Top 5 video?

What scenes should I include in a Top x video?

Evil frogwoman likes to drown women [Mystery movie/TV show]

I have known this scene for a while, and some weeks ago someone asked if I would know the title of the movie/TV show from which these scenes are.

Well, I don’t know the title… but hopefully, this post will solve that mystery as there must be someone out there who knows!

And then, as a next step, it would be perhaps possible to get the whole movie or TV episode in a better picture quality.

Because the picture quality is really bad, especially in the first part.

So, does anyone know the movie title (or TV episode/series title)?

Here is the video (picture quality does get better after the first minute):

Watch the video before you continue!

With the different picture quality throughout that video, I bet it’s from different sources.

I hope that the whole movie or episode is available out there in a better quality!

I LOVE the concept here with the villainess who puts on scuba gear to let these women disappear as she drowns them by pulling them underwater!

I really must know why she is doing that… and … how she gets caught in the end (most likely).

In my version, a female detective would be after her and then you would have a dramatic scuba battle at the end where the detective finally gets the upper hand and drowns the villainess after a long struggle.

My bet is that she “just” gets arrested… but I wanna know the whole story behind these drownings. Why is she doing that?

Also, the idea that she is doing it so sneakily with her scuba gear hidden in certain places… is really cool.

I guess… IF I can see the movie/episode one day… it will be in Japanese with no dub or subtitles available… but that would already be awesome!

Then I would update this post of course.

So… again:

So, does anyone know the movie title (or TV episode/series title)?

A female scuba diver trapped underwater [A new dive movie you MUST see!]

Remember this movie/ blog post?

https://frogwoman.org/breaking-surface-my-review-2-videos-and-much-more

Well, that Swedish/Norwegian movie was made in 2020 and filmed in Norway.

And now, just 3 years later, we have a German(!) remake that was filmed in Malta.

As a German, I am always happy when there is a new German movie that isn’t a crime movie, drama, or a comedy… because it feels like 99% fit in these genres 😆

Quite odd that there is a remake just 3 years later, but I guess since “Breaking Surface” wasn’t filmed in English… maybe they thought that this new movie, which was filmed in English …has a better chance of making money?

If you have seen “Breaking Surface” (what you should have/do!) then you know practically the whole storyline of this new movie as well.

The remake is mostly verrrry close to the original.

So, is there any point in watching the new one when you have seen the old one?

Yes, quite a few!

The main differences are:

– 2 new actresses (obviously)

– The cold water (Norway) scenario was now swapped with warm water (Malta/Mediterranean)

– The dive gear is now different:

Breaking Surface has drysuits and Ocean Reef FFMs while the new one has normal wetsuits and FFMs where you can see the full face (brand?)

– Some minor story changes incl. (even) less backstory in this one

But enough text for now…..

Here is the video:

(You have to watch the video directly on YouTube this time, embedding it here wasn’t allowed)

I thought the video would be completely blocked on YouTube but it was “only” blocked in a handful of countries.

But over 90% of you guys should be able to see it.

Maybe I will add a Google Drive link later on… if that seems necessary.

Well, most of all I am intrigued by the fantastic breathing sounds in this scene!!!

Wow, they had either a great UW mic for that and/or did an awesome post-production job!

I guess I never heard how a scuba tank was sucked completely empty…that clearly.

Also, the whole mask switching scenes are also very exciting/thrilling as well.

The movie itself has around 90 minutes (nearly 10 minutes longer than the original) and the majority of that time is spent underwater.

For that aspect alone you should watch the whole thing!

And then you have all the scuba peril elements in it… 🙂

Perhaps I will post another scene from this one. But as the movie has so much UW time, it will always be pretty incomplete.

The story remains the same as in the original: Two sisters go diving, one of them gets trapped underwater and the other one needs to rescue her in time.

I wonder if there will be a US remake in another few years from now on.

I wouldn’t mind a remake set in the ’60s with some vintage rubber wetsuits and double hose regulators…

A woman in a stunning vintage wetsuit… and a sinking boat

A day late, but here is a new post!

This classic scene is rather short, and has no underwater scenes… but I think that it really should be on the blog!

Why? Because we have a frogwoman in a great 60s smooth-skin wetsuit 🙂

Plus… the scene is quite bizarre/funny! Also, I finished the Diana Rigg episodes last week. So, I’m in a Avengers mood!

Here is the video:

Feel welcome to leave a LIKE on Youtube!

I used all the footage with her in the wetsuit for the video. Sadly she isn’t appearing again in that outfit.

I thought about cutting out the scene with “Mother” on the phone, but I decided to keep them in the video as I think the whole situation is very funny.

It’s always great when people act completely normal in a bizarre situation.

As it looks the scuba mask will be not much use to Mother as it doesn’t fit 😆 #huge gap

Of course, it would have been even better if the frogwoman would have used a scuba tank and would have been showing diving underwater… but no luck here.

Would have been nice if Tara would have dressed accordingly as she dove down to the underwater base.

So happy that this scene is at least in color! Even it is the only scene with a frogwoman in the 3 full color-seasons of this show (2-4).

Damn, what a shame…

However, she does look great in that vintage black rubber wetsuit!

Would have been great to have an action scene with her… but sadly that is the last we see of her in scuba gear in that episode.

But definitely a good scene…

It’s quite possible that this is my last post on the blog… until mid-August.

The next video shoot is approaching quickly and is only 2 weeks away.

The preparations for that and the World Cup in Australia/New Zealand are taking up a lot of my free time.

On August 1, I will update the VIP section as usual.

Again…. like I said in the last post: What I would give to have that scene in color…..

There are 4 seasons of this TV show. 3 of them were filmed in color. Sadly this is also from the first season 🙁

However, these scenes are great! How often you can see a surface fight scene with a rubber frogwoman? That is VERY rare!

Ok, if you see the scene in slow motion you may notice that it looks like she is smiling a bit too much as she is attacked 😆

Perhaps the actress did find the scene hilarious or she couldn’t hide her smile cause she was enjoying it… well, we will never know.

Also, she is way too passive, especially underwater. Yeah, her role was pretty helpless, but well it was the 60s, absolutely standard procedure 🙁

I envy the guy

Would have loved to see her in a scuba fight, but no luck.

But the scuba action with the frogmen was really good.

It is interesting that her wetsuit jacket has a different color than the pants…. she certainly looks great in it!

All in all a great episode… a shame that this was already the majority of female scuba scenes in the entire show.

A really nice scene, even though I would have preferred for them to switch roles and gear.

She in that rubber wetsuit and the male diver pointed the spear gun at her.

And the fight would then last much longer.

However, it’s really nice to see the underwater fight! She made a rookie mistake: When you have a ranged weapon…. don’t get too close to your enemy 😉

But ok, she isn’t trained in scuba combat like the hero of the show.

I will post another scene from this episode.

More scenes of the female police diver

[2nd post for today]

Time for more scenes from a certain movie!

Last week’s post:

https://frogwoman.org/5-tech-divers-and-a-deadly-scuba-accident-post-1-of-2-news-on-video-25-of-project-f

Today I wanna post 3 more scenes of her combined into one video (2 are really short).

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I edited the first scene a little and cut out about a second or so to (hopefully) prevent getting an age restriction by Amish Youtube even though that scene may be totally harmless by US standards.

Quite a dark scene in several ways. But I love the sounds and her dive mask is interesting as well.

Later on, she is her house, which used to be the house of her parents who got killed some years ago.

Quite a nice pool and I like that she has all the scuba gear at her house.

Of course, it’s rather shallow but still, great to have such an indoor pool.

Later on, she seemingly stays a while underwater to relax and clear her head.

Maybe she enjoys that pool in other ways as well, but I can only speculate about that 😆
