‘Sink or Swim’, or ‘Le Grand Bain’ in French, splashes into theaters with a beautiful, humanistic heart. Done in the style of The Full Monty, this comedy will surely swim into your heart! Screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, don’t miss the spectacle of some of France’s finest dramatic actors clad in speedos.
A group of 40-something guys, all on the verge of a mid-life crisis, decide to form their local pool’s first ever synchronized swimming team – for men. Braving the skepticism and ridicule of those around them, and trained by a fallen champion trying to pull herself together, the group set out on an unlikely adventure, and on the way will rediscover a little self-esteem and a lot about themselves and each other. – Synopsis
“A well-made, feel good entertainment that will win the audience over long before the big finale in Norway.” – Screen Daily
