Preamble: This is not a recommendation question. It is a cinema history question.

Have there been any movies that take place entirely underwater?

Criteria:

  • a feature film
  • no above-the-surface scene
  • not a documentary
  • not an animation movie (however; if you think there is only an animation movie, you can mention that)

All the movies that come to my mind have scenes above the surface (like The Abyss) or start/end above the surface.

There might be an Atlantis themed movie that takes place entirely underwater?

I've found the Wikipedia lists below but I haven't watched all these movies obviously. Someone might remember a movie from these lists:

Underwater action films
Films set in Atlantis

If the only answer is an animation movie; some movies that come to mind are Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid, Shark Tale, Ponyo... but I think they all have surface scenes. (maybe except Shark Tale? I didn't watch the whole movie.)

  • @irsha "... but I think they all have surface scenes" He acknowledges it – Nikhil Eshvar Feb 8 '18 at 8:42
  • FWIW, I can confirm that Shark Tale is set entirely underwater. – F1Krazy Feb 8 '18 at 9:42

    @Paulie_D: This is not a recommendation question. It is a cinema history/trivia question. I don't know why people are voting to close. The question for the movie farthest in the future is not closed: movies.stackexchange.com/questions/83382/… – ermanen Feb 8 '18 at 13:00

    @BCdotWEB Why is the question for the movie farthest in the future not closed? and check the "first appearance" tag, mostly trivia questions. – ermanen Feb 8 '18 at 13:20
