Swedish Arts Swim Gents

Lovely Storyville documentary about the first men's synchronized swim team in Sweden. A club started by a bunch of not terribly athletic middle-aged men "in response to the meaninglessness of life." My friend's brother is on the team, and they've always intrigued me. This is the first time I've ever seen them and the visual of these hairy 30 or 40-something men sinking and floating gracefully in a bright blue pool is almost better than the one I'd constructed in my mind.
