Movie Info

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 an unlikely adventure, and on the way will rediscover a little self-esteem and a lot about themselves and each other.


Critic Reviews for Sink or Swim (Le grand bain)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

As harmless as it is silly, but dampened by idle gags, empty characterization and an inordinate two-hour runtime.

Top Critic

A sluggish two hours that delivers only in a triumphant final act that's as improbable as it is inevitable.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

It's lightweight, predictable, and a bit improbable for sure, with a pop soundtrack-Paul McCartney, Tears for Fears-that keeps the pace bouncing along.

Exquisite music from John Brion. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a difficult balance of genres that Lellouche does not manage with special ability. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jan 11, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Lellouche, without completely spoiling his work, confuses the personal triumph with the collective title in an excessively imposed outcome. [Full Review in Spanish]
