A WWII action film, Torpedo (aka U-235) centres on a team of Belgian resistance-fighters. Their mission: to travel from the Belgian Congo to New York, takeover a German submarine and smuggle uranium needed for the Manhattan Project. Directed by Sven Huybrechts and starring Koen De Bouw, Thure Riefenstein and Ella-June Henrard. The film was produced by A-Team Productions (Belgium) in co-production with Column Film (Netherlands), 10.80 Films (Belgium) and Pellikola (Malta).
Torpedo utilized Malta’s seascape, with the Malta portion of the shoot taking place primarily at sea, just a short distance away from Marsaxlokk. The production built a 67m replica of the U-boat’s exterior for the Malta portion of the shoot.
