Appears you can buy the movie from several web locations for less than $15 USD but I have yet to do this. The trailer is available to watch here. Beautiful looking. Only saw this trailer but at least some of the gear looks correct. Well worth watching at least the trailer even though it is in French.

Watched the trailer a few times and went ahead and ordered the movie. Not brave enough to give my credit card to an unknown web page so I went with Amazon France. Just google "Amazon, France" and you will have a french version of the page you are used to. Enter the director's name in the search bar (Jérôme Salle) and you will see "The ODYSSEE EDITION COLLECTOR2016" in either french or english, depending if the translation is turned on. The box set is for 24 EUR. You can get the DVD for under 10 USD but I went for the larger box set since shipping is a smaller percentage of the total (shipping box set to San Francisco Bay Area was $7 USD).

I have had 100% luck with anything I have ordered on French Amazon using my US credit card including used rare old french dive books and spear fishing books.
