Asfalto Reviews:

Moving thriller filled with intense drama , nail-biting action , vehicle ruin , a love storyline and swiftly paced . This exciting film includes thrills , noisy action , intrigue , spectacular final ruining and a triangular love storyline . Stirring film effects to be a great yarn well set in a sun-drenched large town , Madrid . In fact , filmmaker Daniel Calparsoro dedicated this film , ¨Asfalto¨ , to ¨Madrid¨ . It deals with three young and desperate inhabitants of this metropolis , Lucía (Najwa Nimri), a pretty girl of longs legs torn between two lovers : Charly (Juan Diego Botto) and Chino (Gustavo Salmerón) . This trio gotta scramble a lot of twisted relations , risks , dangers and violence . They are a bunch of cunning delinquents as well as drug dealers . At the beginning Lucia and Chino are an offbeat couple . After that , Lucia and Charly fall in love and there takes zone the classical loving triangle . But Lucia loves the two young boys , then it occurs a particular and outlandish threesome . Meantime , they carry out swindles , dope selling and dealing with an whole corrupt underclass (Rubén Ochandiano , Roger Ibáñez , Javier Nogueiras) . They test to rise above their circumstances by any means accessible to them . As while Lucia seduces her victim the Francés (Bigot) ; Chino and his colleague enter his house , and they come in to steal from him . Chino has an abusive older brother , Antonio , who attempts to apart him from them . But things go wrong and their hasty schemes become derailed when there appear Lucia's demanding mother (Antonia San Juan) and Chino's brother (Alfredo Villa) and the events lead to unexpected consequences . This is a thrilling narration of friendship , comradeship , love , delinquency , and drug dealers with exceptionally fine camera work , pretty sequences and ending crashes on the metropolitan roads , in Madrid's Gran Via . The picture mingles action-packed , drama , exciting pursuits , suspense , a tiny bit of sexual photos and spectacular sequences though won't mean much on tiny screen TV . This peculiar as well as tight-knit trio , Salmeron-Najwa-Diego Botto , are the true stars of this film . Pulse-quickening thriller film but plenty of clichés and lots of violence , including punches , slaps , massive blows , kick-ass and bloody shooting . Another chief excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a nice plethora of Spanish actors who realize professionally competent interpretations such as Alfredo Villa as his cop brother Antonio , Antonia San Juan as authoritarian matriarch and Rubén Ochandiano as a druggie . Colourful and appropriate cinematography by Joseph M. Civit . Josep M Civit is one of the greatest Spanish cameramen , as he has demonstrated in "The Hidden Face" , ¨Shiver¨, ¨Warriors¨ , ¨The Absent" ,¨Anguish¨ and many others . Exciting as well as pulsating musical score by Nacho Mastretta and Najwajean-Najwa Nimri . This is other superbly strong thriller film being compellingly directed Daniel Calparsoro , the filmmaking is competent though the storyline eventually run out of gas . It was well realized by Calparsoro in related vein to his subsequent movies as ¨Invasor¨ , other splendid thriller mostly set in Irak fight . His greatest movie was ¨Warriors¨ or ¨Guerreros¨ , other warlike movie brilliantly made by Daniel and dealing with ¨Kosovo¨ fight . Daniel was raised in Donostia , for that reason most movies are set in Basque country . Daniel uses to work with his spouses , as his first wife , Najawa Nimri composes his scores and played in ¨Salto a Vacio¨ , ¨Pasajes¨ , ¨Asfalto¨ , ¨A Ciegas¨ ; and his second one , Patricia Vico , performed in ¨La Ira¨ . Calparsoro is an expert on action and violent dramas , such as : 2013 ¨Combustion¨ starred by Alex Gonzalez and Alberto Amman , 2012 ¨Invasor¨ also starred by Albert Ammann , 2005 ¨Ausentes¨ , 2000 ¨Asfalto¨ , 1997 ¨A Ciegas¨ , 1996 ¨Pasajes¨ , 1995 ¨Salto a Vacío¨ . Furthermore , he has realized TV series and episodes such as ¨Inocentes¨, ¨Apaches¨ , ¨La Ira¨, ¨El Castigo¨. His last one (2016) effects to be ¨100 Años De Perdón¨ with all-star-cast as Luis Tosar , Jose Coronado , Raul Arevalo and his wife Patricia Vico . This flick , ¨Asphalt¨ , will appeal to adrenaline lovers and those young folks looking for powerful emotions . This is the type of movie in which the thriller enthusiasts will play immensely , it's a gotta see .


Chino, a tiny time crook is in love with a prostitute, Lucia, who is also dealing drugs. Charly, who is a mate of Chino, is introduced to Lucia, who instantly falls for the handsome guy. The three prepare to rob a Frenchman as Lucia meets him for a sexual encounter. In executing their scheme, they harm the man, who is believed to be dead, and the trio flees. Lucia is instrumental for bringing the three of them together in bed, something that makes Chino uncomfortable with the entire situation, but which seems to satisfy her, and Charly. Their friendship will later turn in a various direction.At the same time, Chino, whose brother Antonio is a cop, wants to join the force. With the support of his brother, Chino is accepted. When a botched robbery sends Charly to jail, Lucia clings to Chino, as her salvation. Lucia, and her drug addicted mother, Charita, who appears out of the blue at her door, start preparing the drugs at home because with Charly away, it's the only thing she knows will guarantee her a nice return for her investment.After Charly is released, Chino hears from Antonio how Lucia has two-timed him in going to visit him in jail and she waits for him as he is set free. At this point, we realize that Antonio is more deeply involved with his brother and his mates than really meets the eye because of his secret manipulations. At the end, after a horrible vehicle accident in one of the busiest roads of Madrid, the trio's friendship comes to an end, as Chino realizes Lucia will never be his.Daniel Calparsoro, the director, who co-wrote the screen enjoy with Frank Palacios, made a tense movie that clearly takes the viewer into the underworld where Lucia, Charly and Chino live. The strength of the film lies in the portrayals he was able to receive from the three leading actors.Not being a fanatic of Najwa Nimri, whose diction should improve, we gotta admit that she does a credible job as Lucia, the girl torn between two lovers who wants a better life, but who keeps getting pushed down by the circumstances she encounters. Juan Diego Boto, an interesting young actor, is unbelievable as Charly. The true surprise for this viewer, at least, was Gustavo Salmeron, who gives an intense performance as Chino, the most vulnerable of the trio. Antonia San Juan, who has done better work, doesn't have much to do in a role that is not believable. Alfredo Villa, who plays Antonio, the crooked cop, has some effective moments and contributes to the over all success of this film."Asfalto" was made better by the direction of Daniel Calparsoro.


15 mins into ASFALTO, Calparsoro's recent directorial effort, I am still thinking that I am not going to like this. It has rained a lot since Godard told that all you required to create a film was a gun and a girl. Yesterday's boutade is today's common place. But something happens in the method and I search myself genuinely involved with the characters and deeply moved. And ultimately that is what filmmaking is about - I don't care about anything else, but transport me, create me feel something, deliver an emotional experience. And ASFALTO definitively does, this is no ordinary Tarantinesque picture. In a year of mediocre Spanish films it stands out. The script by Calparsoro and Santiago Tabernero underexplains certain subplots, but builds three very charismatic and believable characters and gives them nice scenes to play. Najwa Nimri is OUTSTANDING as Lucia, the terrible woman that wants to mend her ways, walking up and down the steamy roads of Madrid in the midst of summer wearing skimpy hotpants and high heels. Her Lucia is vulnerable, volatile and lovable. Gustavo Salmeron is once again nice as Chino, the conventional guy forced to become a policeman, and Juan Diego Botto infuses the threesome with mystery. Beautifully shot by Josep Maria Civit, some of the action scenes are not terribly well executed, but it makes up for it with pure beauty in shots like Nimri and Botto asleep inside a discarded truck wheel looking at Madrid as the sun comes up, and many more. It has its flaws but the virtues of the movie redeems it at the end. Beautiful, gotta see.
