O ritmo é lento, falta foco à narração e o ato final é confuso. Por sorte, este não é um filme sobre "tramas", mas sobre personagens - e é aí que merece elogios.

More a song about living and dying well than a picture that makes much sense in the traditional definition.

...it would be a mistake to dismiss Duvall's career behind the camera as a rich character actor's hobby.

You get the feeling Duvall took a tango trip to Buenos Aires and haphazardly decided to make a crime movie while staying there.

While Duvall's contribution to the tango canon may not add much to its mystique, it still offers considerable pleasures to anyone who shares his interest.

Not so much a movie as a chance to sidle up alongside Robert Duvall and twirl around a cinematic dance floor with him.

Its many tiny character details make up for the ludicrous story it's telling.

Watching a Robert Duvall performance has become like putting on a great, weathered pair of boots -- you know it will feel good and you will want to go the distance.

An ode to love and art while simultaneously a reminder of human frailty.

Assassination Tango has very little to do with style -- or even plot -- and everything to do with the way a character moves.

April 11, 2003
Moves to an off-kilter rhythm that seems at times to be locked away in the head of its writer/director/star.
April 10, 2003
The film works as a self-portrait -- of both Duvall's character, and Duvall and his self-reflective style of acting.

Yes, it's murky, but if you enjoy watching Mr. Duvall dig into a gnarly character, the script's flaws fade in importance.

When Duvall films the tango, his passion for it is palpable. You can feel the wonder he feels at its emotion and its precision.
