A hugely popular hit at the recent Alliance Francaise French Film Festival. Sink or Swim is the story of a group of 40-somethings on the verge of a mid-life crisis who decide to form their local pool’s first ever synchronized swimming team – for men.

Reviews

Sink or Swim features Mathieu Amalric as the depressed, unemployed new recruit; Guillaume Canet as an uptight factory manager; Jonathan Zaccaï as the dim but lovable one; Benoît Poelvoorde as the bordering-on-bankrupt salesman; and Jean-Hugues Anglade as an aging wannabe rock-star...once the gang hit Norway for the synchronised swimming championships..it’s hard not to grin.
