Movie Info

Amos Nachoum is one of the greatest underwater photographers of all times. Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on Earth, he has developed a unique approach, that puts him face to face with his subjects, without any protection. He swam with crocodiles and killer whales, with anacondas and with great white sharks but one major predator has always eluded him, the Polar bear. He tried before and barely escaped, but now, as he nears the end of his career, he is determined to give it one last shot. As the journey unfolds, Amos contemplates the series of unspoken events that drove him here, to the end of the world. It has been a long and painful journey, after serving in an Elite Commando unit and witnessing the horrors of war, but where others find fear, Amos finds redemption.


Critic Reviews for Picture of His Life

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

This is not a terribly well-made documentary, but it's a fascinating character.

Nachoum remains so reticent about his true motivations that by the time he achieves his life goal, one aches for greater catharsis.

A fascinating portrait of a modern-day, benign Ahab.

June 17, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a sad irony in a documentary about an underwater photographer renowned for capturing striking images of creatures in their natural environments feeling so contrived.

June 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Amos Nachoum has a vulnerability that he manages to locate in animals without diminishing their capacity for violence.

June 16, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

First of its kind photography of underwater life in what amounts to an interesting infomercial of one man's travel company.
