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.
The film could be cleverer, funnier, better-timed. Où sont les Tatis d'antan? But Gordon and Abel - she an anorexic Tilda Swinton, he a slightly squashed version of John Gordon Sinclair (Gregory's Girl) - are appealing comic presences.
Not every routine in Rumba works and some of the comedy bits lean toward boring, but for the most part, each segment is brisk and visually delightful. The unusual elements of the movie certainly never wear thin.
