Originally released as a motion picture in 2006.
Based on the idea by Guillermo Arriaga and Alejandro González Iñárritu.
Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael García Bernal, Koji Yoshida, Adriana Barraza, Rinko Kikuchi, Mustapha Rachidi.
A wealthy American is touring Morocco with his wife. The two become the focus of an international incident also involving a poor Moroccan farmer who is struggling to keep his two young sons in line and his family together. A San Diego nanny, with her employers absent, makes the disastrous decision to take her charges with her to a wedding in Mexico. A deaf-mute Japanese teen tries to deal with a relationship with her father and the world in general that has been upended by the death of her mother. It's about a gun. It's about communication - or the lack of it - both intercultural and intracultural. Raises issues like terrorism and immigration, and is as basic as husbands talking to their wives and parents understanding their children.
DVD, region 1, widescreen presentation; Dolby Digital.
Reviews & Summaries
at 2 hrs and 22 min it was way to long, the story was hard to follow, and at the end it did not seem to fit alltogether.
Brad Pitt had a very minor roll in the overall film.
I guess you need to see it and then make up your own mind.
