Amores Perros, aka Love’s a Bitch, the debut film from five time Oscar winner Alexandro Gonzalez Inarritu, tells three stories of life in the margins of Mexico City. Octavio is sharing an apartment with his brother, which leads to a serious problem when he falls in love with Susanna, his sister-in-law. Elsewhere, Daniel, a successful publishing magnate, leaves his family to take up with a beautiful model, Valeria. And finally, El Chivo is an elderly homeless man who is trying to contact his daughter, whom he hasn’t seen in years.

“One of the most honored and most expertly articulated Mexican films of recent years.” — Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
