Synopsis

Summer at a recreation center near Paris is in full swing, so there is no shortage of amusing situations. A glimpse into the mindset of visitors and employees of the extensive park—original French inhabitants and immigrants who, lacking the means for a more exotic vacation, come here to relax.

Our take

Returning to the water park of his childhood, Guillaume Brac’s graceful documentary sees the seemingly mundane recreational space as an urban oasis, a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Paris. Underneath the playfulness, however, is a pointed and deeply moving commentary on immigration in France.
