Synopsis

Allt Flyter
Seven clumsy menopausal males strive to become the new kings of a female-dominated sport in this comedy from Sweden. Frederik (Jonas Inde) is a man in his mid-forties whose life has been taking a series of small turns for the worst; he's lost his job as a newspaper reporter, his teenage daughter Sara (Amanda Davin) considers him an embarrassment, and his ego is bruised by the notion that his former wife has just earned a raise and a promotion. Frederik and a handful of buddies play floor hockey on a regular basis, but now the team is looking for a new home as their gym is now overrun by special teams for women, kids and the handicapped and has no space for them. One night, Frederik and the team work up a comedy skit for a friend's bachelor party in which they impersonate a women's synchronized swimming team in drag; the sketch is a hit, and while repeating it a few days later doesn't go at all well, it gives Frederik the idea that they could form Sweden's first all-male synchronized swimming team. The fact that Frederik and his buddies are overweight and can barely tread water doesn't dampen their enthusiasm to prove that they can still do something remarkable, but convincing anyone else that they're not some sort of joke is an uphill struggle. Directed and co-written by Mans Herngren, Allt Flyter (aka The Swimsuit Issue) features an original score by the acclaimed Swedish rock band The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
