The young dealer Atris (Samuel Schneider) dreams of finally not having to work for the drug boss El Keitar (Kida Khodr Ramadan) anymore. Atris wants to make the big money - just like his old buddy Franky (Jannis Niewöhner), who picks him up in his pretty Lamborghini. What Atris doesn't know: The car belongs to Frankys friend Oxana (Stefanie Giesinger). He doesn't have a cent himself, just a lot of debt. He's trying to eliminate them with a foolproof counterfeit deal. Under the pretext of wanting to buy an apartment, Franky borrows 200,000 euros from Oxana's father and persuades Atris to help him carry out the counterfeit money deal. It could all be so simple and lucrative for the two young men - wouldn't everything go wrong that night that can go wrong…

After the extremely successful "Bibi & Tina" films, Detlev Buck now turns back to more adult topics. With "Asphaltgorillas" he delivers a mixture of gangster thriller and big city comedy, which can score with an atmospheric visual language and some very original ideas. But despite many positive aspects the spark never really wants to ignite. The story gets lost in an effort to be cool and clever, in a maze of storylines that are sometimes more, sometimes less convincingly constructed.

The characters rarely manage to get real sympathy points from the audience, which doesn't help to tie the audience to the story. The humour seems somewhat indecisive and meanders somewhere between exaggerated silliness and black humorous scurrility. Buck, actually a guarantor for somewhat unadjusted humor, unfortunately only hits the bull's eye very rarely. Even the good line-up can only tear a little out of it.

The "asphalt gorillas" therefore cannot approach earlier Buck films such as "Wir können auch anders", "Männerpension" or the outstanding drama "Knallhart", even if a clear further development of the filmmaker is discernible in the visual implementation. Detlev Buck succeeds very well in creating a very special atmosphere, but doesn't succeed in establishing a convincing story, stirring characters or funny gags. The result is a mishmash, which is not bad, but which returns the viewer a bit perplexed and unsatisfied. Buck can actually do that much better - and that's exactly why there's a disappointed bottom line: Conditionally worth seeing!
