Editorial Reviews

Happy couple Fiona (Fiona Gordon) and Dom (Dominique Abel) have a common passion – Latin Dancing. One night, after winning a glorious dance competition, they have a car accident which turns their lives upside down. Although Fiona loses her leg and Dom loses his memory, there’s nothing that can keep them off the dance floor in this darkly hilarious, gag-filled comedy.

Written, produced and performed by L'Iceberg trio Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy.

BONUS FEATURES: Deleted Scenes, Outtakes

4.0 out of 5 stars Creative, Heart-warming, December 15, 2009
Format:DVD
I picked up this movie not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be one of the most creative movies I have seen in recent times. It takes slapstick comedy (if you can call it that - I call it art!) to a whole new level. True - it is at-times surreal but the two actors (and the director) handle emotions so well, that even without much dialogue they succeed in keeping you hooked for the entire movie. The director does a fine job weaving the tale around situations that take some real absurd turns (for eg: the flaming fake leg scene). And yet... in the end it does not feel over-done. What keeps you going is not only the quirk characters but also the fine creative way of story-telling, in my opinion.

In terms of creativity, this movie was definitely off-the-charts and for that alone, this deserves at least 4 stars and gets a must-see recommendation from me. (Must add: Definitely not a movie for people that are used to standard fare that Hollywood churns out though.)

5.0 out of 5 stars review of Rumba November 17, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a French movie where not a word of French is spoken for the first 18 minutes! Words aren't needed as this very funny film uses sight-gags to make you laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Funny!!!! March 15, 2013
Format:DVD
It's tough sifting through foreign movies to find a diamond. This movie is in a class all
by itself, brilliantly funny, amazing dancing. I only wish they could have tacked on another hour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story, cinematography, acting! January 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I saw this movie in the theater and we both loved it's simple, but totally entertaining story. The actors are simply fantastic! There are four or five dance scenes and they come from out of the blue, yet fit in perfectly. No dialogue, really, but none is needed. Since buying the dvd, we've watched it with our 1 and 3 year old and they were in love with the vibrant colors and movements. We watched it with my in-laws too and they agreed that it was a fresh, funny take on a very sweet love story. Not mushy, just romantic and very funny, while being serious. Life deals the two main characters a tough blow, but it does absolutely nothing to quench their joy of life! I simply can't say enough good things about this film and I think I'll watch it with my family this weekend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun favorite in our home October 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon are a great comedy team. If you appreciate Charlie Chaplin, Mr. Bean, and other visual comedic characters, you may love this couple. They are from the northern coast of France where they apparently live and produce their films. This is non-spoken humor that transcends all language barriers.

The most exciting thing that has happened to me this summer is having discovered Fiona Gordon and Dom Abel. They are both amazing artists/comedians and have created a formula for slapstick that cannot be topped! I love these two together. I am writing reviews on all three of their movies to help boost them to a 5 star rating. The story, choreography, setting, all elements in movie making are simply amazing!
