Amores Perros – “Don’t-Do Love Guide”

12 07 2008

Amores Perros is the perfect romantic film.

Though people find Amores Perros harsh and unrealistic, this film is the best “Love Guide” in film.  More specifically, the film is the perfect “Don’t-Do Love Guide”.  Josh Kun wrote an illuminating essay few years back titled “Love in the Time of Betrayal” in which he explained how each character fullfiilled the central theme of the movie. Betrayal.  And he is correct in his interpretation of the movie.

However, like the tragedies of Shakespeare, Amores Perros demonstrates how terrible love can go.  Each viewer should identify with a situation or an emotion in this film.  The wisdom of this movie rests on the corrsosive actions of betrayal to the ones we love.
