Juan José Campanella
On the brink of the new Millennium in the bustling City of Mexico, one horrible car accident intertwines inextricably the lives of three perfect strangers. Octavio, a rebellious adolescent who is secretly in love with his sister-in-law, dreams of escaping his miserable life, and for this reason, he enters reluctantly the obscure world of dog fighting with his lethal dog Cofi. And then unexpectedly, Valeria, a stunning woman and famous supermodel, will cross paths with Octavio, while in the meantime, her pampered little dog Richie manages to vanish into thin air in the confined space of her apartment. Lastly, Chivo, an ex-guerrilla vagabond, after abandoning his little daughter, unable to make up for lost time, he channels his love to the city's strays and a mortally wounded Rottweiler. In the end, even though all the weary characters, men and beasts, wish for a bright future, in this life-changing journey in the pursuit of love, sometimes infidelity, sin and death can get in the way.

For the scenes where the dogs appeared to be dead or dying, the animals were actually heavily sedated under the careful eye of the Mexican SPCA. Multiples dogs that looked like one dog seen on screen were also used, so that the same dog was not under sedation for more than half an hour and not more than once a day at a time. See more »
During the car crash, stabilizing bars, to further strengthen the roof and protect the stunt driver, are visible in the black car. These bars are on both the driver's and passenger's side and run diagonally from the roof to, presumably the floor, as in a race car. The bars are not visible prior to the accident or after the accident, This particular vehicle was almost certainly just used for that one scene/shot. See more »
Maybe for most of you, people outside third-world countries like Mexico or
Colombia, my home, movies like ths one are only representations of another
world... something away from you.
My city, medellin, is one of the most dangerous cities on the world. Mexico
city can be as dangerous as medellin. I`m not talking about politics. maybe
you haven`t lived violence as near as i have, but im gonna tell you
something, that is the main reason i voted 9 this movie: Amores perros is
not fiction. Its a perfect peep to what life is here. We have expensive
models that go to stupid tv shows, we have dog fighting, we have mercedes,
we have old trucks, we have killers, businessmen, we feel love, we have
houses... our life, as you can see in the movie, isn`t as different as you
Amores perros can show you that life is not easy here. but that`s
What you saw is thousand`s of people life. that`s why it`s so magic to you.
Yourè seeing what you will never live there, in london, new york, seattle,
paris, berlin... reality is weirder than fiction... see it on amores
and you`ll believe me... live it here, and no movie will surprise
