Amores perros (2000)

Alejandro González Iñárritu rose to fame as the director of this gritty romance drama. The title means "dog love" which fits very well as the characters throw themselves at their affections with doglike fidelity, and perhaps less than doglike intelligence.

Three stories weave together at the site of a car accident and are joined also by the prominent position the canines take in each protagonists life. It's a dark film and the love is disturbed and twisted, but it's love nonetheless.
