Amores Perros (2000) (Mexico - Spanish) - (Movies To See Before You Die - World Cinema/Thriller)

Here is another entry which goes into my list of “Most Disturbing Movies”. The movie is a kind of emotional shock for its viewers with its exceptionally novel content and storyline. Though now many movies have been made, based on a similar framework, but this is one of the pioneer movies which had many stories moving together with one connecting incident.

It revolves around a road accident involving few characters and then the story moves into the life of all those people who get affected by that one accident. The same road mishap is re-lived again from different angles with reference to the lives of various characters in the story.
There is a brutal dog fight, a model getting an injured body, a lonely person living with street dogs and many more such touching sequences in the movie. The most disturbing one is when the sweet puppy belonging to the model gets lost under the wooden flooring of the house and then comes out after many days crying and wounded from many sides. After watching this movie, you get a strange feeling which is a mixture of sadness and love. It is really an out of world experience watching this highly appreciated movie. Simply not to be missed. 

Directed By Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I watched this movie today. I think Maniratnam copied every thing in this movie for his project Yuva. This film is way better than Yuva.
I don\'t know why maniratnam re-used this hyper-link format screenplay for his movie Yuva. I think he must be a crazy fool.
Yuva is an ordinary commercial bollywood masala movie.
I hope you will understand

Hi Ramji,
Yes I perfectly can understand as ths original was one of the most disturning movies I had watched and it stayed with me for days....after having watched for the first time.
I dont know why Manratnam decided to make a film with almost similar settings but in the process he really failed to impress like the original one.

But If you loved this then do watch "Babel" too from the same director....as it is another great work of the master film-maker.
