Time Out says
pliability of the human form.
Alas, their terpsichorean bliss is short lived, as a freak car accident leaves Fiona with only one leg and Dom with chronic amnesia, and the film duly mutates in to a more bluesy romantic farce. Photographed in slow, deadpan takes and utilising the most torrid colour scheme imaginable, ‘Rumba’ delivers laughs that are hearty if infrequent, but its characters are too limited in scope for it to attain any real human depth. Yet there are tiny fragments of doe-eyed pathos that manage to rise above the screwball set-pieces, and they are rather touching.
