Pipin Ferreras Suing Netflix Over ‘No Limit’ Movie


Freediver Pipin Ferreras has filed a lawsuit against Netflix, alleging the streamer portrayed him as murdering his wife, the late Audrey Mestre.

No Limit” (“Sous Emprise“), a French movie inspired by Mestre’s life, has been streaming on Netflix since last September.

According to the film’s synopsis:

“In this visually stunning romantic drama, a prodigiously talented freediver strikes up a destructive romance with her trainer.”

The film stars Camille Rowe, who plays Roxana, and Sofiane Zermani, who plays her freediving trainer and eventual lover, Pascal, who is based on Ferreras.

In the lawsuit, filed in US District Court against Netflix, production company Nolita Cinema and David Rosenthal, the film’s director, Ferreras claims:

“Netflix, Nolita and Rosenthal (collectively, “Defendants”) made a deliberate decision for dramatic purposes to defame Ferreras by showing in the Film that he murdered Audrey by intentionally sabotaging the equipment that should have brought her back to the surface after a world record dive of 171 Meters (561 feet). In reality, Audrey’s death was an accident and Ferreras risked his life in a vain attempt to save her.”
