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

    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.

    A film plunked somewhat unfortunately between the inspirational and the ordinary.

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