21 Grams


USA 2003, 123 minutes
Dir. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama, Suspense/Crime


Aroview: For his English-language debut, the celebrated Mexican director of AMORES PERROS weighs in with an unconventional, soul-baring drama that connects three characters crippled by fate.

Employing a fractured narrative to survey the impact of a hit-and-run accident on three strangers (a grieving widow, a heart-transplant recipient and the remorseful culprit with a criminal past), this challenges (and at times teases) its audience into putting the fragments of its intersecting stories into chronological order.

Though ambitious and very well made, the film itself carries a heavy burden of grief and, as signalled by the casting of Sean Penn, has a tendency to be too determinedly serious for its own good.
