The most highly acclaimed film of the year opens with a reassurance that no animals were harmed in its making, but be warned: Amores Perros is slang for 'tough love', and this is an unapologetically tough triptych of overlapping tales, each with the common theme of perros - dogs. The sprawl of Mexico City provides the backdrop for this ground-breaking commentary on 21st century civilisation.
Academy Awards 2001: Nominated Best Foreign Language Film
