I love films that wear their style on their sleeves and Rumba is definitely one of those films. The style is pretty reminiscent of say Wes Anderson mixed in with a dash of Jared Hess and a sprinkling of Taika Waititi. There is very sparse dialog making it seem like a silent slapstick film. The plot is dark, yet the film feels so light and humorous. The lighting throughout the film feels so fake, but it really gives it this unexplainable creative aura as if everything has been "made" for the film. The characters are awkward and sometimes do things that are easily foreseen, but I still enjoyed knowing what would happen, yet not knowing how it would play out. And to tie it all back to dancing, the film has its own rhythm and the lack of dialog makes it feel even more like one big dance.
