Director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu and writer Guillermo Arriaga's final part of the trilogy that began with Amores Perros and continued with 21 Grams once again weaves multiple intercut story strands, this time spread across three continents and four countries (from Morocco to San Diego by way of Mexico to Japan) and as the title implies, numerous languages. A number of tragic incidents triggered by human stupidity and carelessness steadily pile up, and emotional tension increases as the filmmakers burrow deeply, with extraordinary empathy and insight into the existential loneliness of the characters, portrayed with moving performances from all the actors.


“The performances (Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael Garcia Bernal) are fine, and Iñárritu's virtuoso direction is consistently bold, fluent and expressive.”
