Amores Perros Reviews

July 8, 2014
A beautifully human story that can teach us all a thing or two.
July 6, 2014
Raw. Violent. Cruel.
July 1, 2014
Highly emotional and even brutal, but incredibly well polished all around, Amores Perros is a semi-forgotten film debut by the master Alejandro Inarritu, and it's a masterpiece.
November 14, 2009
Ambitious and thought provoking, Amores Perros tells three loosely intersecting stories that reflect on family, greed, and violence.
September 13, 2012
This Mexican character drama runs at nearly three hours and is extremely violent, but its fast-paced, well-written, and acted superbly. Its three compelling stories come together with a huge payoff.

The usage of storylines based on the average life of the people where the movie is located is a extensively used cliché in foreign movies. However, Amores Perros is an intense film with a lot to tell about the characters.

A masterpiece in latin american neo realism

Sex and violence in Mexico may be the tagline for this movie featuring Gael Garcia Bernal and this is more or less what you get. Good entertainment but not much else.

A complex and satisfying movie, well-directed and with great performances. Personally, my favourite film.

Taratino-esque timeline back and forth. One great movie. One of my All-time favorite

Sometimes great cinema is not always based on things that are easy to watch and digest. Ameros Perros is such movie where the viewer will get to witness painful things and through that pain come the art of realization. Maybe there is no other pleasant way to tell this story without making it less effective. Whichever it is the final result is a staggering piece of true cinema.

Amores Perros is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, and is the first movie of the death trilogy followed by 21 Grams (2003) and Babel (2006). Though there is no relativity in plot between these movies the sublime and underlying similarity in style of storytelling is what binds them together. Here in Amores Perros there are 3 parallel story lines that seem very different to each other on surface but speak of a common theme all together. And at one point the characters of each story line overlaps and meets ones another at a common symbolic incident. This incident is what binds the stories together however not largely dependent on each other's success. This is one reason I called this point symbolic than crucial.

Story line one follows the most painful to watch material. It's about a young man from the city low class who turns to fighting his dog in underground dog fights to earn money for his plans to get away with his unconventional girlfriend. Here you may come across the ugly trade of dog fights and the fate of dogs that goes in to them. For dog lovers this section is nightmare. Story line two is about a super model who faces an unfortunate road accident. The drama between her illegal partner and her struggle to survive takes a very different mood and rhythm from the previous story. Yet she also has a pet dog that keeps her company. The key character of storyline three is a hit man. Beaten up by life and mistakes he did in the past he lives with a bunch of dogs and almost homeless. However he struggles to put things right by his daughter and for some reasons he is pushed away from his dreams.


As you may realize these three storylines are far from being common. But they are beautifully connected by dogs. The dog is a symbol of loyalty at each story and the people are symbols of disloyalty and unfaithfulness. This combination works perfectly and Amores Perros gives the viewer heavy breathing. Powerful performances, wonderful cinematography and music ads spice on top of each other without making a single story lines prominent over each other. It seems like the director has done a perfect job in phasing out the sequences and laying out a perfect ending as well. While I highly recommend this I would like to recommend 21 Grams and Babel too if you have not seeing them already. They complete one of the most satisfying trilogies of contemporary cinema.

The first made but the second strongest and most genuine installment of Inarritu's 'death' series. Still incredibly written, directly and symbolically and thoroughly intriguing.
May 1, 2014
The title of the film has intrigued me for years but somehow I wasn't too interested to see it despite all the rave reviews I've heard. How wrong could I've been. This movie is just WOW.

Genius edits iblend multiple stories with a dog motif
April 20, 2014
One of my favorite movies. Raw, violent, and very, very difficult to watch. You feel like crap afterward. Mostly, you want to take a shower after all the filth you've seen. Beautifully written and gloriously directed this movie shows the bones of a lost modern society. But, in all its awfulness and ugliness there is love. Passionate love, fatherly love, brotherly love, family love, animal love. Love as the cure to loneliness that leaves you even more lonely. Love as a terrible and terrifying thing, all tied up by Rottweiller. The soundtrack is not too shabby either.
April 20, 2014
Even upon a second viewing this remains a truly amazing experience. One of my all time favorites. It's movies like this that me feel sorry for the many Americans who refuse to watch foreign films.

Putting the pieces together to see how these three stories relate is one of the most rewarding challenges of any movie.

an amazing idea that was put together very well, a true art in storytelling...p.s.-the dogfights are disturbing.
February 27, 2014
The opening of "The death trilogy". Iñarritu and Arriaga are pure talent. A masterpiece of the new Latin Cinema.
