"surreal comic gem" Total Film

From the team that created The Fairy, Rumba is another quirky, silly, delightful comedy full of physical humour, colour and pathos. Two teachers with a passion for dancing suffer a terrible accident, yet their ensuing adventures unfold in increasingly wonderful comic set pieces. Screened with a fabulous Buster Keaton short.

"Like an episode of Sesame Street scripted by Luis Bunuel and helmed by Jacques Tati" Variety
