THE SHINY SHRIMPS (15, 103 mins)

Released: September 6 (UK & Ireland, selected cinemas)

An emotionally troubled swimmer gains a new perspective on life in a raucous road trip reminiscent of The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, co-directed by Maxime Govare and Cedric le Gallo.

Olympic champion Matthias Le Goff (Nicolas Goff) is overshadowed by younger rivals and, during a testy exchange with a TV reporter, he issues a homophobic slur.

The national swimming federation forces Matthias to atone by coaching a gay water polo team, the Shiny Shrimps, who are hoping to qualify for a berth at the forthcoming Gay Games.

While the polo team's founder, restaurant owner Jean (Alban Lenoir), welcomes Matthias with open arms, other members, like fervent activist Joel (Roland Menou), are less forgiving.

A team vote seals the deal and Matthias imparts his winning mentality on the rest of the crew: Alex (David Baiot), Cedric (Michael Abiteboul), Damien (Romain Lancry), Fred (Romain Brau), Vincent (Felix Martinez) and Xavier (Geoffrey Couet).

As the Gay Games in Croatia loom, Matthias confronts his prejudices and inspires the Shiny Shrimps to dream of unlikely victories inside and out of the pool.


Live action photography melds with 3D animation in a family-friendly sequel to the 2013 film Minuscule: Valley Of The Lost Ants, directed by Thomas Szabo and Helene Giraud.

As snowflakes begin to fall in a valley in eastern France and insects gather supplies to tide them through the winter, a young ladybird is accidentally trapped inside a parcel destined for sun-kissed Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.

A dream team of tiny friends joins forces to launch a daring rescue mission.

Their path leads to a jungle filled with strange and terrifying beasties, including a voracious tarantula and a praying mantis blessed with the power of hypnotic suggestion.

Transplanted to this alien environment, the European interlopers fashion makeshift tools and weapons from the flora and fauna.
