Amores Perros (2000)

2000 Amores Perros Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtMexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s uncompromisingly hard-hitting debut feature is an astounding drama thriller. It’s disturbing imagery, brilliantly choreographed and filmed, shocks. With his vivid characters and stories – all based loosely on fact – Iñárritu shows us a dark yet realistic side to some of the social levels of his hometown, Mexico City.

Amores Perros is the first movie in Iñárritu’s trilogy of death. It was followed by 21 Grams (2003) and Babel (2006). All three scripts were written by Guillermo Arriaga. All three films are award-winning must-sees.


You can find more information on this Spanish-language movie on Wikipedia and IMDb. Ignore the average IMDb rating – this is a superb film.

As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:

About Shimky

Hi there! I hope you like some of Wonderful Cinema's recommendations. Please leave us a comment and recommend a film or two for us to watch. Thanks and all the best, Shimky.


  1. PAZ

    Again, one of my favs.

  2. guitanaeima


  3. Great film and good idea for a blog. My husband hates it when I read out reviews from papers or the back of DVDs saying they give too much away. And sometimes at the cinema you feel as if you’ve seen the whole film in a trailer!

  4. MIB

    Another good film. Very well constructed and full of surprises.

  5. A masterchief, if you loved it, you should watch “Babel”, “Biutiful”, “21 grams”…

  6. thanks for the head up that there’s a movie with Gael in it!
