Teachers in a rural school, happy couple Fiona and Dom have a common passion: Latin Dancing. One night, after a glorious dance competition, they have a car accident and see their lives turn upside down. Rumba or how optimism and humour can overcome fatality!
Rumba is a film that is mostly dialog free, the actors in the film do a lot of physical comedy/acting, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it works it is a very funny film, full of cartoonish moments. It's also a very colorful and beautiful looking movie, set pieces and clothing really stand out. Even though it is 76 minutes it does tend to drag in some spots thus making that time length feel longer.
i don't think i've ever fallen quite so much in love with a film in years... a beautiful, beautiful film - very much in the vein of tati but with a more lyrical bent at times... it's genuinely sweet as well as belly laugh brilliant. i want to watch it all over again IMMEDIATELY, that's how much i unreservedly love this film....
Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon are excellent together! Gorgeous film that absolutely anyone can enjoy.
