The Swimmer, dir. Adam Kalderon, Israel 2021, 83 min., Hebrew with English subtitles, 18
Having earned himself a coveted spot at an elite training camp, talented swimmer Erez finds himself thrust into an unforgiving world of sporting rivalry, battling against his peers for a place on the Israeli Olympic swimming team. Erez is single-minded in his athletic ambition, until he meets handsome fellow swimmer Nevo, with whom he forms an undeniable connection. But this ultra-competitive environment does not tolerate such distractions and Erez is soon warned by his exacting coach to stay away from Nevo – something Erez comes to understand is impossible.
A thrilling blend of sports movie and love story, Adam Kalderon’s stylish coming-of-age tale, which was presented at the BFI London Film Festival last year, is fraught with heady drama and smouldering sexual tension.
