Critic Reviews for Asphalt
A tranquil nocturne when compared to the scherzo standards of German expressionism.
Audience Reviews for Asphalt
This movie has some of that cool German expressionist style, but it also feels like a film noir before film noir was around. The story is one we've seen a million times, the officer who falls in love with the criminal. The ending was good though. Overall it's pretty good, but I think it could have been better.
one of the last great silents from berlin's famous ufa studio, really good stuff. wonderful opening street scenes and betty amann gives louise brooks a run for her money. plus it's on internet archive!--> http://www.archive.org/details/Asphalt1929
