Under ParisMovie on Netflix

Sophia, a scientist, teams up with Mika, an activist, to save Paris from a shark threat.


Why watch this film?

The killer shark movie subgenre gets a French addition with Under Paris. The plot follows a scientist (Bérénice Bejo, from The Artist) who must confront her tragic past and find a solution when the presence of a violent shark is discovered in the Seine River, shortly before a major triathlon. It's a film with a outlandish premise (like so many of its shark movie counterparts), though never ridiculous or comedic: it falls more into the territory of a conventional thriller than the comedy of Sharknado. Predictable, but if you enjoy these kinds of movies, you'll find it entertaining.
