A shark ? In the Landes?
Just a year ago, we learned that Ludovic and Zoran Boukherma, the acclaimed directors of the werewolf film Teddywere going to turn “French-style Jaws”, on a southwestern beach. The shots of The Year of the Shark actually took place between Biscarosse and Arcachon during the summer of 2021 with Marina Fois, Kad Merad, Jean-Pascal Zadi and Christine Gautier, and the distributor The Jokers can therefore reveal to the public a first image of this comedy. The press release also specifies its release date, August 3, as well as its synopsis:
Maja, a maritime policeman in the moors, sees her worst nightmare come true: taking early retirement!
Thierry, her husband, has already planned the camping place and the mobile home.
But the disappearance of a vacationer puts the whole coast on alert: a shark prowls the bay! Helped by her young colleagues Eugénie and Blaise, she jumps at the chance to offer herself one last mission…
