Not funny, just painful
8 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually like European movies but this one felt like an insult from start to finish.

There are a couple of dancing scenes, but the male lead is painful to watch in them. The plot doesn't give any help: a ten-year-old could write something better. The actors behave like wooden puppets or robots, unable to show any emotion, and behaving so oddly that it is impossible to think of them as human beings with whom one could identify or empathize. Even bad Hollywood movies have more insight into the human condition than "Rumba" does.

If you want a heart-warming dancing movie, the Japanese version of "Shall We Dance?" is infinitely better.
