Plot: Love is a bitch. And the things that people do in the name of love.
Direction/Writing: Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu
Background: The world cinema group on facebook.
Positives: Fascinating film. There are three stories that are interconnected through a horrible accident and all of them are love stories in their own way. The film shows pain, loss and hope without melodrama but with great detail. The title has “bitch” in it and the film has many dogs. That metaphor is taken seriously and is shown without making the stories and narration forced in any way! The camera work and background music are awesome as well.
Negatives: I wish it was in English, I really do. But I don;t think I can imagine American characters in such a film! I wish they make a Kannada film remaking this.
Favorite scenes: The scene where the homeless guy points his gun to the dog. The scene where the model’s new husband calls his wife out of desperation.
