A 40-something crane operator Samir falls head over heels in love with swimming instructor Agathe. For lack of a better plan, he enlists as her student. The new comedy from the late French-Icelandic filmmaker, which premiered at Cannes' Directors' Fortnight sidebar last year, finds a man pretending he can't swim in order to get close to the lifeguard he loves. “Its utter and complete lack of cynicism makes the film, in its own miniature way, sort of extraordinary.” - The Hollywood Reporter. (English subtitles)
