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.

Great foreign film about love and dogs - Amores Perros review by PV

Spoiler Alert
20/02/2011

This film starts slowly and the viewer needs patience at the start - but then, after a while, it turns into a really quite excellent movie - three disticnt stories, all connecting, is a bit like Short Cuts - but the theme of love and dogs (amores perros) develop beautifully. Best of all is the old tramp's story, but the young thugs' story and the yuppie couple's story, also work well - and are really quite damning about south American society, with its massive divisions. Highloy recommended to anyone who likes foreign films; also anyone who's a dog lover will like it - I'm not really, but still really loved it.

Gory - Amores Perros review by JD

Spoiler Alert
05/02/2012

Fighting dogs feature heavily in this brutal and violent Mexican film. I did not find it palatable. Several scenes of dogs killing one another and then of men killing dogs is disgustingly gory. The other scenes are no more pleasant. Only for extreme violence seeking viewers.
