Synopsis:
Beginning with a kinetic, bone-crushing car accident, 'Amores Perros' imaginatively interweaves the stories of its three victims: Octavio (Gael Garcia Bernal) a young man who has fallen in love with his violent brother's wife; Valeria (Goya Toledo), a beautiful Mexican model for whom physical appearances are everything and El Chivo (Emilio Echevarria), a former political assassin now exiled from his family. The result is a moving, visceral eulogy to life, loss and dog fighting on Mexico's mean streets.

Bleak, Brutal but Brilliant. - Amores Perros review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/10/2007

Amores Peros is an excellent portrayal of losing whats important and how we and those around us get caught up in and become the unconsciouse archietitchs of such chaos. By Looking at three superfically unrealted stories we begin to see what all three have in common.

But the brillance of the film is in the way it is written which at times fells like there is no narrative at all and that you are as ignorant as the characters you are watching. The outlook of the writer is also uncompromizingly bleak with his focus seemingly resting on the lose of idealisim in the face of the uglyness of the world. As such it is a film without hope.

The only critic of the film would be its use of gross mortal animal violence for no other reason than to achieve certain "real" shots. It goes without saying therefore that a lot of dogs where brazinly murdered for the production of this film.

But despite this whats done is done and unneccassary barbarizim to one side this is an excellent film and shouldn't be missed.

3 in 1 - Amores Perros review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
17/11/2007

This multi award-winning movie from Mexico is almost 2 1/2 hours long, but not too long, since 3 stories are intertwined around an accident. We follow the lead up, the consequences and a bystander getting involved. Fascinating and unusual. Actor Gael Garcia, the director of photography and the composer have all later made a career in Hollywood - partly due to this poignant movie with dogfights and violence, love and hate. Recommendable!
