Movie Info

The two brothers (Ludovic Vandendaele and Erick Da Silva) in this story are homeless and unsocialized; if they ever knew a loving family, it was from the outside looking in. They live by stealing, but they get their kicks from breaking things; at the beginning of the film they have stolen a bus and driven it over the edge of a cliff. They are fascinated by fish, especially the kind that are still trying to breathe even though they have been on ice for hours. In their imaginations, they are sharks and the rest of society is fish. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Son of the Shark

One of the most brilliant and poignant films of recent memory, "Son of a Shark" does not praise juvenile delinquency it treats it like it is harsh and real. The film has remained with me all these years since the brief U.S. release in '95 and will haunt the viewer forever. Hopefully it'll soon be digitally enhanced and released on Blu-Ray for all to see this magnificent film.
