Amores Perros

AmoresPerrosBBB

(out of 5)


A tragic car accident in downtown Mexico City serves as the centre around which three stories loosely revolve: Octavio wants his sister-in-law to leave his abusive thief of a brother and so enters dog-fighting competitions to raise money for their getaway; a supermodel is horribly injured following the accident and can hardly move from her wheelchair enough to find her dog after he goes missing under the floorboards of her new apartment; and a low-living drifter finds his life on skid row takes a turn after his cop friend gives him his latest assassination assignment (his story also involves dogs). Told on a very grand scale, the film is well written and all the dots connect perfectly in the end, but there really isn’t enough going on emotionally to hook you in completely. In short, fans of Run Lola Run will love it, fans of All About My Mother will not.
