The Shiny Shrimps

Maxime Govare, Cedric le Gallo
Running Time
103 mins

A jolly, if rather predictable, queer French comedy about a homophobic swimming champion who finds himself obliged to train an all-gay water polo team who are rather more interested in partying than winning.

Lest you doubt the film’s authenticity, you may wish to note that co-director Cedric Le Gallo played for a gay water polo team who really were called The Shiny Shrimps.
