Fr, 2019, 103 mins, French dialogue with subtitles
As punishment for making a homophobic remark on live TV, Olympic Champion swimmer Matthias Le Goff is ordered to coach an amateur gay waterpolo team for the Gay Games in Croatia. But the "Shiny Shrimps" seem more enamoured of after-practice partying than improving their sporting chances as they travel from Paris on board an open-top bus, a la Summer Holiday. An exuberantly feel-good charmer reminiscent of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
