  • Despite its title, there's actually very little dancing, or rhythmic flair, in You Don't Need Feet to Dance. show more

  • Govenar's slow pace doesn't quite do the story justice. With tighter editing, the film's beats might be just as infectious as those from Conde's drum. show more

  • This would all be moving enough, but the film also benefits greatly from Conde’s endlessly charismatic personality. show more
