Great movie. Top notch actors.

‚??Un taxi pour Tobrouk‚?? had best be described as a good old-fashioned 4-star movie. It contains a simple, predictable plot with mostly predictable action, but we wouldn‚??t expect (nor wish) otherwise. The strength of this movie is (of course) in the character development of the men involved and the way they relate to each other. Admittedly, it‚??s not surprising what happens (there are those who dislike the German officer and those who are willing to be merciful, even though they start out mistrusting him; some of the Frenchmen gradually change their opinion of him, whereas others aren‚??t prepared to. At the same time, the German has to find his position in this group of (potential) enemies ‚?? can he trust them well enough to not fear for his life, and should he lend a helping hand whenever the situation calls for it? And if so, is this out of a (misguided?) sense of camaraderie or just because it will mean he will save at least his own life during this touch-and-go expedition?). During their predicament, the men will be forced to forge some sort of alliance with unlikely parties because this is the only way for them to survive. In the process, they will also come round to analyzing the absurdity of war as such as well as its consequences. With a concept like this, one just cannot go wrong. And for this reason, ‚??Un taxi pour Tobrouk‚?? never goes wrong. All the scenes during the drive through the desert make good sense, even though we can see it all coming. The ending is perhaps not so predictable, even though we have seen such things before in other movies of the same genre too.

A much too rare movie with a fantastic cast. Certainly the best action movie about desert action during WWII. It is witty and thrilling, I loved it.

Lino Ventura et dialogue de Audiard. Pas besoin d'en ajouter.

Dans le desert tu trouves un macchabbee en gorge que tu ne peux pas identifier : on lui fouille les poches. Quand on trouve un ouvre-boite, c'est un British, et quand c'est un tire-bouchon, c'est un Francais.

Excellent film of the WWII desert patrol subgenre. Don't expect too much action, it is a movie full of humor with a handful of great actors. Overall it an unpretentious yet extremely successful entertainment.
