Downcast Bertrand is suffering a midlife crisis. When he answers an ad placed by a group looking for a new member for their male synchronised swimming team (we’re talking aquabeaux here), he has no idea that the amateur squad will not only bring him new friends but also a new lease of life. A comedy about holding your breath for as long as it takes to ensure life goes swimmingly.


Synopsis

Downcast Bertrand is suffering a midlife crisis. When he answers an ad placed by a group looking for a new member for their male synchronised swimming team (we’re talking aquabeaux here), he has no idea that he'll be treading water with a truly colourful bunch of lovable outcasts. The team – all sagging muscles and thinning hair and each with his own particular set of problems – is aiming for high-level competition. French director Gilles Lellouche made a splash at this year’s Cannes festival with a hugely entertaining and moving comedy about dreams that can come true even if we don’t dare believe in them.
