Devant le succès médiatique des films avec animaux gigantesques et monstres marins en tous genres, une nouvelle production "maritime" avec poisson géant et mauvais matelot, à la sauce écologique et à "l'humanisme" animalier bon enfant. Pour se distraire, avant de reprendre la mer ou son bain de minuit... www.cinefiches.com
This is the oddest movie. Not simply a JAWS rip-off (though it is that), this is even more so a revenge film, with the Orca the one who is out for revenge. There is much that is incredible silly (what is with that house on stilts, I mean seriously), but if you can get past it there is actually some interesting genre filmmaking going on here.
An orca that is sometimes human and a man that is sometimes an animal. After his female companion and child are both killed by the man, the orca goes out for revenge. A movie of unexpected beauty and tragedy, a sort of reinvention of "Moby Dick" in a nocturnal, winter-like landscape. The ending is beautiful because the man fails to kill the beast in which he mirrors himself. And by dying he regains his humanity.
