Critic Reviews for Rumba
The story plays out with an absolute minimum of dialogue, and the visual gags are highly inventive. In a comedy market dominated by crudity, sarcasm, and smug pop-culture references, laughs this pure hit like lightning.
It's not terrifically funny, but then how could it be? The influence of Jacques Tati abides in the material, without his sunniness.
This charming, affectionately crafted and gleefully unfashionable comic miniature from writing/directing troupe Abel, Gordon and Romy slips down a treat.
* If you've ever laughed at and revelled in the films of Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd or Jacques Tati, then Rumba will seem a delightful blast from the silent past.
A near-silent Belgian farce about a married pair of competitive Latin dancers whose lives go badly but amusingly awry, Rumba features plenty of fancy footwork.
