This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.
We are delighted to open the tour with a French version on the similar UK production ‘Swimming with Men’ and just as hilarious, premiered at Cannes. “A surefooted crowd-pleaser… stellar ensemble cast. Genuinely funny… jaunty, confident approach” - Screen Daily.
Mathieu Amalric and Guillaume Canet lead Gilles Lellouche's uplifting comedy about a group of disenchanted men who find fresh self-esteem in a synchronised swimming team. The motley band try to shake off their midlife malaise by celebrating their inner Esther Williams as the Brits did in the recent ‘Swimming with Men’.
It has been rechristened in summer quarters as ‘The Pool Monty’. The group include 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). Cast also includes Virginie Efira, Alban Ivanov and Philippe Katerine.
