Vanessa Bauche, Gael Garcia, Goya Toledo. A car crash draws the very different lives of three Mexico City inhabitants into a strange and dangerous triangle in this acclaimed drama from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. 2000/color/153 min/R/Spanish/widescreen.
Amores Perros roughly translates to "Love's a bitch," and it's an apt summation of this remarkable film's exploration of passion, loss, and the fragility of our lives. In telling three stories connected by one traumatic incident, Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu uses an intricate screenplay by novelist Guillermo Arriaga to make three movies in close orbit, expressing the notion that we are defined by what we lose--from our loves to our family, our innocence, or even our lives. These interwoven tales--about a young man in love with his brother's pregnant wife, a perfume spokeswoman and her married lover, and a scruffy vagrant who sidelines as a paid killer--are united by a devastating car crash that provides the film's narrative nexus, and by the many dogs that the characters own or care for. There is graphic violence, prompting a disclaimer that controversial dog-fight scenes were harmless and carefully supervised, but what emerges from Amores Perros is a uniquely conceptual portrait of people whom we come to know through their relationship with dogs. The film is simultaneously bleak, cynical, insightful, and compassionate, with layers of meaning that are sure to reward multiple viewings. --Jeff Shannon

I don't understand why a world of spanish films will go unnoticed simply because of failure to provide language subtitles, but I'm greatful this dvd came with them.
This movie is more deeply, reflects the life of citizens in many countries the search of love accomplish with the suffering, the life of the people in each social status and their priorities in their lifes, the chritics saw in Amores Perros this conjugation of elements if you live in one rich country may be the perception of this collide feellings its not clear for you (What is hunger if I never feel it in my own body?), but it can be the reallity of life of one human being in one place of the world not only Mexico, this point of view is very far for any Tarantino movie.
Amore perros shows the art of the reallity sometimes hard and cruel in the search of better way of life for some people only with their own experiences and their whishes like the only elements that guide them trhough the life. The car crash links the lifes of different social status people, it break and transform their current life in one way that they never though and show their priorities of one of them like vanities compared with the opposite life of the other people. The love of the assesin to save the life of the dog returned in dead of all other dogs when the dog love to the assesin (the dog love the assesin but it kills all the other being - dogs - that love him).
The crithics saw in Amores Perros more than this short comment that I am writting the most important art cause controversy in many points of view, but cause immediate appreciation when you see it, if it wins Cannes is because it is a good movie that transform your feeling from the begin to the end of the movie, if you want to see the movie dont expect to see a Hollywood movie or any nice movie if you want to see that, see Harry Potter. In Amores Perros expect to see art, captured reallity of the cruel world for many people and the search of the happiness in each individual concept of it, sometimes may be never reached !!!.
5 stars but this movie must have 6
That being said, did I enjoy it? Yes absolutely. While the images are extremely graphic, the stories make it worthwhile.
Also as a side note, this DVD has several extras (featurettes, music videos, etc.)
