Sink or Swim
By Gilles Lellouche
2018 – France, Belgium – 122 min.
In French with English subtitles
Gilles Lellouche’s warm and amusing film poses this question: Can a loose collection of mismatched oddballs come together to find success as a male synchronized-swimming team? The absurdity of the premise is matched by the sincere commitment of a group of barely athletic men bonding over this seemingly impossible task. When the team discovers that there is a world championship men’s synchronized swimming competition taking place in Norway and no team from France has signed up yet, dreams kick into high gear in a fevered quest for glory.
