Good acting for a mediocre film

Living in Italy, speaking Spanish and having so few opportunities to see a Spanish film I decided almost immediately to see Asfalto.

Seeing the first scenes of the film you can deduct that is one of those "tarantinian" films talking about urban violence in a decadent Madrid. Three main characters: Lucia, Charly and the "Chino" are despaired guys. Each one of them is looking how to bribe and gain easy money without taking care of the rules of the society. Is interesting to see how all these three are linked in a love-violent triangle. Their language is as bad as the actions that they do. Chino's brother is a policeman working in the narcotic department and try to help him to gain a new life. He feels to have a certain responsibility since their father died.

The end is the beginning and life is a circle, no solution at all is presented and perhaps the triangle is broken.

This film should be seen for the very good acting of the 3 main characters, plus Lucia's mother (Almodovar's actress) but the rest is frankly useless.

Rating: 5/10
