Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Four years before Jaws made seaside swimming seem a hazardous occupation for tourists, director Peter Gimbel mined the same deep-water fears in this outstanding documentary. Using the device of divers searching for the hunting grounds of the great white shark, Gimbel's cameras get unflinchingly up close and dangerously personal with the ocean's eating machines. Yet the film manages to avoid the clichés that would become the norm after Steven Spielberg's shocker. Fans of wildlife programmes will love it.
