Amores Perros is based on a screenplay by Mexican author Guillermo Arriaga Jordn.

The literal translation is Dogs Many Loves. "Amores" is translated from Spanish to English literally as "many loves" or figuratively as "goodness" or "sweetness". "Perros" means "dogs" but has been translated as "wretchedness" or "misery". Put together, "amores perros" translates as something like "that which is good and desirable in life" and "that which is miserable." Posters for the movie often pose the question, Qu es el amor? (What is love?), followed by the film title, "amores perros," as a play on an answer, "amor es perros," meaning "love is wretched" or "love's a bitch". "Perros" literally means "dogs" but can also be translated in pejorative terms for (1) an unworthy person, (2) a hired killer, (3) a prostitute, and (4) an unfaithful husband/boyfriend, all persons depicted in the film.
