  • Excerpt: Anyone who saw the critically acclaimed Amores Perros knows that Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu is a man possessed by serendipitous fate. But what they probably don't know is that in 1996, González Iñárritu lost his young son Luciano to complications from a lung ailment, a tragedy that inspired him to make 21 Grams , his ambitious new film centered on the heart-wrenching death of two small children.

  • Conclusion: Superb. It’s sometimes necessary to give ambitious movies the benefit of the doubt, critically speaking, but not in this case. 21 Grams strives for greatness, and that’s precisely what it achieves.

  • Excerpt: Kan livet gå vidare när det värsta har hänt, och isåfall hur? Det är kärnan inte bara i denna film utan i många. Svaren brukar vara ungefär "jo, genom förlåtelse, konfrontation med det man kanske vill glömma och i mötet med andra människor". Men vägen dit är svår och man kan inte arrangera en prydlig resa dit. Det blir, liksom, aldrig som man tänkt sig.
