SINK OR SWIM / LE GRAND BAIN (N/C 12+)

Mathieu Amalric and Guillaume Canet lead Gilles Lellouche’s uplifting comedy about a group of disenchanted men who find fresh self-esteem in a synchronised swimming team. The motley band try to shake off their midlife malaise by celebrating their inner Esther Williams as the Brits did in the recent Swimming with Men. It has been rechristened in summer quarters as The Pool Monty. The group include hot-headed divorcee Laurent (Canet), never-was rock musician Simon (Jean-Hugues Anglade), near-broke pool salesman (Benoît Poelvoorde) and naive custodian Thierry (Philippe Katerine).
