“A surefooted crowdpleaser with enough warmth and the committed talents of a stellar ensemble cast to fend off any sense of predictability.” – Allan Hunter, Screen International


Directed by Gilles Lellouche and starring some of France’s best male actors (Guillaume Canet, Mathieu Amalric and Jean-Hugues Anglade) wearing Speedos, Sink or Swim is pure feel-good entertainment.

A group of depressed middle-aged men address their collective midlife crisis when they learn of the existence of a team of male synchronised swimmers at their local pool. Amateurs are welcome, which is just as well given that the rum bunch of current members are neither very synchronised nor especially professional.
