Amores perros is heavy shit

5 second plot: This movie is actually three movies in one. The stories come together in a car crash scene. There are two forbidden young lovers. The girl is the boy's sister-in-law. There is the gorgeous famous young woman who 'steals' a family man from his wife. She gets hurt badly in the crash. And then there is the dog whisperer. He's like a hobo with a shotgun. And it's all going down in Mexico City.

5 second review: Is this depressing or what? My god, there does not seem to be very much light at the end of the tunnel. I like to be left with an entertained feeling after a movie, not with a feeling a truck just ran over me. But a whole bunch of people really really like this film very much, so I will shut up about it.

IMDb score: 8,2/10
Our score: 3/10
