Storyline

4 interlocking stories connected by a single gun converge at the end to reveal a complex and tragic story of the lives of humanity around the world and how we truly aren't all that different. In Morocco, a troubled married couple are on vacation trying to work out their differences. Meanwhile, a Moroccan herder buys a rifle for his sons so they can keep the jackals away from his herd. A girl in Japan dealing with rejection, the death of her mother, the emotional distance of her father, her own self-consciousness, and a disability among many other issues, deals with modern life in the enormous metropolis of Tokyo, Japan. Then, on the opposite side of the world the married couple's Mexican nanny takes the couple's 2 children with her to her son's wedding in Mexico, only to come into trouble on the return trip.

Goofs

When Chieko and Detective Mamiya are out on the balcony, there are no buildings close to hers when he is looking at the view they have from above the 30th floor. Later Chieko is on the balcony, nude, and her father comes to comfort her. As the movie ends, a long shot of their balcony is shown from their balcony's height and there are two buildings, one the same height, and one taller, right next to theirs that were not there earlier.

Mexican directors are great
17 December 2018 | by alansabljakovic-39044See all my reviews

I liked this movie and it's way of storytelling is really great. I love that stlye of more different stories that are somehow connected. Amores Perros is my favorite movie from Inarritu just beacuse of that storytelling (and I'm not fan of Birdman). Brad Pitt delivers another great performance. My favorite sequence of movie is Korean one and it's perfectly made. I think Inarritu should return to this style rather than his new one...
