Storyline

Tikoyo lives by the Bora Bora lagoon in the South Pacific, where he found a man-eating tiger shark when it was an orphaned baby, just a foot long. He named it Manidu, and it grew to be sixteen feet long. Tikoyo believes that his companion houses the soul of a wise old man, and helps him guard the sacred black pearls in the lagoon. In fact, Manidu does protect Tikoyo and his girlfriend Diana, only eating those who are their enemies, or who seek to destroy their environment, or steal the pearls.

One of my favorite movies.
16 April 2000 | by (Memphis,Tn U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 8 years old and I still remember it like yesterday. I have searched high and low for this movie and hopefully it will be available soon. Anyway, this movie is very touching and dramatic. I cried every time I watched it. This movie is a MUST to see and own! You will not regret it. :)
