Shark Teeth: our interview with Edoardo Pesce and director Davide Gentile

Shark Teeth: our interview with Edoardo Pesce and director Davide Gentile

In cinemas from 8 June, Denti da Squalo is an Italian film not to be missed. Here is our interview with Edoardo Pesce, interpreter of a small but fundamental role, and the director Davide Gentile.

From 8 June it is at the cinema Shark Teethwork before David Gentile, which, as our readers know, we appreciated and we hope will be rewarded by the public. We really liked the unusual look, for our cinema, on a story of criminal/sentimental education and its ability to miraculously remain in balance between fairy tale and realism. Curated in all departments, from photography to scenography, from direction to the very realistic shark, the result of excellent special effects, to the suggestive soundtrack of Gabriel Mainetti (also artistic producer), e Michele Braga (if you want to listen to it it’s already available digitally). Shark teeth is a small film about those summers that change lives, make you smile, involve and move, thanks also to the boy protagonist in his debut, Tiziano Menichelli. We had already offered you the interview we did with his “mother” Virginia Raphael and today we offer you the one with Edward Fishalways very good, here menacing and funny together, even in a small (but fundamental) role like the one he plays in the film, the Corsair, and with the director David Gentilewho has lived abroad for a long time and also told us about his inspirations and cinematographic role models.

Shark Teeth: the plot

It’s a summer unlike any other for thirteen-year-old Walter (Tiziano Menichelli). She is the first to go without her father Antonio (Claudio Santamaria) who died recently in an accident at work. We are on the Roman coast and school has just finished, he and his mother Rita (Virginia Raffaele) are left alone, who hardly accepts this terrible mourning. Rita withdraws more and more into herself and her silences are distancing her from her son. Walter spends his days wandering aimlessly and one day his attention is captured by a mysterious place, a villa with a large swimming pool. However, the water in the pool is murky and contrary to what he initially thinks, the villa is not abandoned. The owner is the local criminal known as Il Corsaro (Edoardo Pesce), and the villa is guarded by Carlo (Stefano Rosci), a thug. It will be the beginning of an adventure that Walter will remember for a lifetime.
