The underwater fishing scenes were not simulated and the fish were actually killed. See more »
In Mexico, in order to catch major audiences and avoid censorship, two versions were released. An uncut version for mature audiences and a version without sexual scenes for younger audiences. See more »
You're making a Jaws imitation and feel it won't be very popular. What do you do? Fill it with nude and sex scenes of course!In fact,Tintorera is so concerned with showing naked bodies(a surprising amount are men)that the bloodthirsty shark lurking in the waters becomes a mere sub-plot.You begin to ask yourself where the hell this shark is when the characters(horribly dubbed,by the way)are gleefully skinny dipping.
You will ultimately give up on any hopes you may have had of Tintorera being exciting in any way and just enjoy the nude scenes which,by the way are always given a big signpost before they happen,for example"Hey,I've got this GREAT idea,lets all take our clothes off and go swimming!"
Technically,Tintorera is hilariously inept,as is most of the dialogue.The shark scenes are obviously some sort of documentary footage,clearly indicated by the fact that it is a different type of film.Therefore,the characters that get attacked are never seen in the same shot as the shark,which has a very cheap feel to it.
So there you go.That's Tintorera.I can only recommend this film to people who want nudity but don't have the balls to rent a porno(you guys know who you are) and 70's buffs who want to hear a few forgotten disco tracks.
