The Dive is the first English-language film by German director Maximilian Erlenwein. He recently directed several episodes of the Netflix series Skylines (see the news), which mixes the worlds of hip-hop music and organised crime, and has so far shot two other thrillers – namely, Gravity [+lire aussi :

For his current project, however, Erlenwein is working with an international cast, which includes UK-born Australian actress Sophie Lowe (Above Suspicion, Blow the Man Down) and US thesp Louisa Krause (Dark Waters, Port Authority [+lire aussi :

For The Dive, Erlenwein has adapted the plot of the thriller Breaking Surface [+lire aussi :

fiche film] by Swedish director Joachim Hedén, released in 2020. The story focuses on two sisters, Drew and May, who are experienced scuba divers. Their diving trip brings them to an idyllic, but also remote, spot. While they are diving, a landslide occurs and a rock falls on May. She is trapped underwater, and Drew has to find a way to rescue her. Since the oxygen is running low for both sisters, the mission becomes very difficult. At a certain point, Drew has to decide whether she will be able to save her sister without putting herself in danger.
The shoot for the film took place from August to October 2021. Most of it happened in Malta, as well as in the German regions of North-Rhine Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein. It is a production by Augenschein, based in Cologne and Hamburg, which was recently responsible for titles such as 7500 [+lire aussi :

The release date has not yet been confirmed. However, the distribution will be handled by Augenschein in collaboration with London-based Protagonist Pictures.
