Matthias, an Olympic champion at the end of his career, makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment: coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant and amateur gay water polo team. They have only one thing in mind: to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia where the hottest international LGBT athletes compete. It’s the start of a bumpy and joyful ride... Faster, Higher, Stronger.
Maxime Govare and Cédric Le Gallo make you laugh and move you with a comedy about a gay water polo team and an eclectic cast. A hymn to tolerance that does you good.
— Nathalie Simon, Le Figaro (translated from French)
A fresh road movie about the competitivity, the bureaucratic and our role in our times. A modern tragicomedy. A must see.
— Guillem Martinez Oya, Cinematismo
It's a real nice moment of pleasure and laughter! It had been a long time since I had seen a French comedy so lively, modern and refreshing.
