A Brentwood housewife and her attorney husband.  Their car is stolen and the events that develop in connection with this one.  A nervous Persian shop owner.  

Two police officers who are friends, one is experienced and the other is not and as a result of  the events  they  have to get separatedThe incredible things that they had to experience.    An African-American  woman who is keen about her honour and her husband a tv director  who does not look at  life through his feelings and the difficulties that they have to face.   How this director becomes mad due to the provocative behaviour of  his wife, how he is stopped by the young,inexperienced police officer and how he returns home without getting into trouble.   How the other police saves the tv director’s wife whom he had harassed before  out of the flames of  a burning car by  risking his own life.

The things that happen to the Mexican locksmith.  His argument with the nervous Persian shopkeeper, how his shop is plundered followed by the extremely exciting scene of his daughter being shot down and how the fairy tale that he had once told his little girl becomes true.  

 The adventures of  two carjackers.  How the inexperienced corp had to kill one of  them reluctantly.   The dead thief  being the brother of  the police dedective.  The middle aged Korean man hit by a car and the loving moments he shared with his wife.

Yes, the lives of  these couples who all live in Los Angeles, who do not know one another get intersected in a very interesting way.  This is the most striking point of  the scenario.  This set up in which the good becomes the bad unwillingly and the bad becomes the good is unusual and it is worth watching. 

I can say that this film which is the winner of  the Oscar is the best among the ones that I have watched. 

My note for the film is 9.5 out of 10.

I wish you all a pleasant time while waching.

Remain with love and may you be entrusted to Allah.
