A standing ovation at Cannes, 4 million tickets sold, a host of amazing stars, re-made in other territories, Sink or Swim (Le Grand Bain) is a true sensation. It’s impossible to dislike, is tremendously enjoyable and a genuine money back guarantee film.
It’s an against the odds story of a bunch of disparate 40 something men, all in the midst of a mid life crisis, who form a synchronised swimming team at the local swimming pool. They are beaten into true competitive shape by 2 women (better than one); an unapologetic coach and her former swim partner.
From here, redemption and respect beckons. It’s an unashamedly French take on masculinity so its doubly hilarious and mocking, but also sentimental and joyous.
Stars aplenty and belly laughs, rather than belly flops, are the order of the day for this film.
