50 shades of sharks (Haie leben gefährlich)

Cinquante nuances de requins

They hunt, have manic feeding frenzies, and violently attack: sharks are

often considered as dangerous killing machines, driven by their primal instinct. This film

intends to break down these preconceived ideas and reveal the lesser, gentler known aspects of the nature of sharks: delicate, timid, ingenious, harmless.... Sometimes clumsy or unlucky, they too are prey and have to defend themselves against attack. Surviving in the ocean is not as easy as you might think, even for a shark!
