After an unfortunate incident with an American couple on holiday in Morocco, four separate, yet related narratives are followed around the world – in the USA, Mexico, Morocco and Japan. The last of Iñárritu‘s Death Trilogy, also including Amores Perros and 21 Grams.
Exceptional directorial technique with an unsequenced storyline. Multidimensional and powerful, with superb performances from an ensemble cast.
Screenplay by Guillermo Arriaga and Alejandro González Iñárritu.
Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, and an Oscar (for Best Original Score by Gustavo Santaolalla) from a total of seven nominations.
