To be more specific it's about scuba diving, or underwater diving. To achieve that the diver uses a scuba gear that allows him to breathe underwater for a long period of time. Many people do it for fun by taking on the PADI Open Water exam. Some are professionals and it will be the focus of this story, well... kind of.

Enzo was a champion free diver. He dived without the scuba gear, holding his breath as long as he could. He had a rivalry and friendship with Jaques. When he realized he lost the girl (Rosanna) to his friend, he tried to beat Jaques' new record. He was the holder of the world record before Jaques broke it. So, Enzo decided to get the record back. He did it but died in the process. But at least he had his last wish fulfilled. He wanted to die where he belonged to, at the bottom of "Le Gran Bleu" (The Big Blue), at the bottom of the sea.

Enzo was a family man, very proud, with strong roots. He also had a great sense of hospitality. Every time he got visits he would shout:

"Les Visiteurs" (the guests) have arrived!"

So, all his family, Mamma, Roberto, Alfredo and Angelica would come to welcome the guests. He was very popular and his friends called him every day.

"Le téléphone sonne toujours deux fois!!" (the phone always rings twice)

Most of the time he knew at what time his friends would call him. So, he sat next to the phone and he never let it rang more than twice. His family was not wealthy, but he liked to impress people by looking richer than he was. In the street he always showed some "Signes extérieurs de richesse" (signs of wealth) wearing fake golden watches and branded clothing.

On the last dive of his life; he knew he could die, cause he decided to ignore the doctors advices about the 400 ft (122m) depth limit recommended. But Enzo was very proud and competitive. He had already missed the "French Kiss" with Rosanna to Jaques. So, he swore he would break Jaques' new world record. He would let him the girl, but not the world record.

When he tried to flirt with Rosanna before she fell in love with Jaques; he tried to discourage her to choose his friend over him by telling her:

"Don't look at Jaques as if he was a human being, he comes from another planet. "

Yes, that's true. Jaques came from Mars, but Rosanna came from Venus, and they were a perfect match. Enzo for its part came from Earth. It lies right between Mars and Venus, but he couldn't prevent Jaques and Rosanna to fall in love with each others. Jealous, he called this new romance a "Witch Way Love". This is not exactly what it was, cause they didn't fly on broom; they swam in the sea with dolphins instead.

To forget about it he remembered the first time he fell in love with a girl. He kept a great memory about this unique experience that is falling in love for the very first time.

"Ah, I was 17! I was so in love with her, I tried to die for her. Two years later I can't even remember her name. Time, erases everything. "

To forget about it he also turned to his family he yelled to and kissed so many times.

"...So, between Mamma, Roberto and Alfredo, we yell and scream at each other all day long. Except for Angelica, she just cries. And then finally, we all end up kissing. Can you explain that to me? Because *that's* what love is all about. It's a pain in the ass, but it keeps us together."

He is totally right. That's what most families ties are all about: "It's a pain in the ass, but it keeps us together."

After all he just decided to stay single to prevent another upset.

"No women no kids - that's the rules."

That's not a bad rule if you're not a family man and you like silence.

Meanwhile he still gives very good advice to his brothers Roberto and Alfredo about women. They want to make their Mamma happy by giving her many grandchildren to extend the family.

"The best way to impress a woman is to be the most honest you can."

If you are handsome and rich it will help too. Impress a woman is something, but to keep her is another. So, Roberto and Alfredo impressed a girl, got married and had children. But at the end of the day they got divorced. It doesn't matter, Mamma welcomed her two sons back home. Nobody cooks the pasta better than Mamma!

Just before dying, Enzo told his friend Jaques who had tried to save him:

"There is no heaven on Earth. Not now anyway."

The heaven of Enzo is "Le Gran Bleu" (The Big Blue), at the bottom of the sea. This is the heaven of the "true" divers, where the angels look like dolphins.

"So, goodnight Enzo. What would be "The Da Vinci Code" of "The Big Blue"? You asked Jaques to take you back to the bottom of the sea cause you know it's were The Code can be found, don't you?"
