On the night between 14 and 15 April 1912, the fastest and most majestic ocean liner of the 20th century, RMS Titanic, sank in the waters off the coast of Newfoundland. Of the 2223 passengers only 705 escaped death, while others died on board the rescue ships.

The most famous disaster in the history of modern shipping has always fascinated cinema, especially because until 1985 no one had traced the wreck with certainty. The exploration of the ship hunter Robert Ballard pushed, 10 years later, the director and oceanographer James Cameron to go to the bottom of the ocean to shoot a documentary on that story. The idea of including a great love story was born against the backdrop of the real reconstruction in the shipwreck. Thus was born the myth of the film "Titanic" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in the roles of Jack and Rose, the unfortunate lovers separated in the end at thebottom of the sea, a legend mixed with truth that Rose tells to the treasure hunter Brock Lovett.
