"I am born in this [...] country and I know how it works !"
17 October 2000 | by (Lyon, France) – See all my reviews

This film has nothing of the Hollywood recipe about how to make a good selling movie. You want to see a cool hero, a powerful love story, a terrible disaster, some creatures from outer space or a juicy blonde ? Well there isn't any of these in Asphalt Tango. What I discovered instead was an excellent movie which makes you learn something about a different culture. We sometimes have to imagine that somewhere on this planet there are people which have a different way of thinking, which is not necessarily worse because it isn't our own.

The director did a great job in showing all the different sides of the main characters, the way they are changed by the efforts they are making to integrate a new way of life, an always-changing-never-working economical system. Some characters just cannot accept the new realities and remain the same, others become jackals looking for a new prey. They sometimes act strangely from the outsider's point of view, our point of view, who just can't understand them.

A good scene describing this idea is the one where the French agent, Marion wants to take a decision, and the Romanian guide tells her that he was the only one capable of doing that job because "I am born in this f**ing country and I know how it works !!!"

The movie is also very funny, all the situations have an amusing side and a serious one, it is up to you to decide what do you want to see. Either way, I loved this movie a lot !
