"The lateral movement of the title, Along the Road to Altamira, signals that we are about to embark on a journey through Spain. Our final destination is Altamira, where the first forms of representation by Paleolithic humans still remain...Rimmer's consummate talents make this film a unique cinematic experience."

The use of light and shadow creates sometimes gentle, sometimes frenzied scenes of women engaged in sex, play, and suffering. An emotionally charged birth segment interwoven throughout gives this short film its momentum.
"With an irresistible humour, Rimmer speculates in The Dance on the nature of the film loop. We see a 1920s couple whirling around a dance floor ata dizzying pace ... Even after the technical building block of the film is evident, the vertiginous effect remains ... Uncanny in its ability to evoke acomplexity of responses from a simplicity of means."
