Sink or Swim
(Le grand bain)

Gilles Lellouche

Mathieu Amalric and Guillaume Canet lead Gilles Lellouche's uplifting comedy about a group of disenchanted men who form a synchronised swimming team to bolster their self-esteem.

As in the recent British film Swimming with Men, the motley band try to shake off their midlife malaise by celebrating their inner Esther Williams, to hilarious comic effect. The group includes 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).
