A Film by Inarritu Bardem
This is a story of a man in free fall. On the road to redemption, darkness lights his way. Connected with the afterlife, uxbal is a tragic hero and father of two who's sensing the danger of death. He struggles with a tainted reality and a fate that works against him in order to forgive, for love.

"...creates a feeling of raw, sprawling intimacy.  A.O. Scott, New York Times
"[It] ultimately gives us a story of hope, and from Bardem, a performance of staggering depth...  Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"Soulful, tragic and made with loving care.  Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine

Editor's Note
A man tries to reconcile his desire to be good with his lawless ways in this dark drama from Mexican auteur Alejandro González Iñárritu. Uxbal (Javier Bardem) is a man with a bright side and a dark side. Uxbal is a caring father who is strong but affectionate toward his two children, Ana (Hanaa Bouchaib) and Mateo (Guillermo Estrella), and he struggles to maintain a healthy relationship with their mother, Marambra (Maricel Álvarez), despite her problems with alcohol and instability. But Uxbal is also a criminal who oversees a small underground empire alongside fellow crime boss Hai (Taisheng Cheng) and Uxbal's impulsive brother, Tito (Eduard Fernández). Uxbal's dealings range from drugs to construction, but unlike his partners in crime, he tries to treat those around him with dignity even as he trades in human misery. Uxbal's precarious world begins to collapse when he's diagnosed with a serious illness and told he has only a few weeks left to live; he tries to put his affairs in order in the time he has left, but realizes that few around him have any sense of responsibility. BIUTIFUL receives its world premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Professional Reviews

Movieline
"In the end, what's most deeply affecting about BIUTIFUL is a face -- Bardem's." 12/28/2010

Los Angeles Times
"[A]n ethereal yet visceral meditation on living and dying....[Bardem gives] a performance of staggering depth, unquestionably one of the year's best." 12/29/2010

New York Times
"[Bardem] combines muscular, charismatic physicality with an almost delicate sensitivity..." 12/28/2010

Wall Street Journal
"As for Mr. Bardem, he's ever so much more than a tragic face. He gives this hero tragic grandeur." 12/31/2010

Hollywood Reporter
"[I]t's a gorgeous, melancholy tone poem about love, fatherhood and guilt....Some scenes are absolutely wrenching to behold." 12/17/2010

Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] riveting, if harrowing piece....Bardem is tremendous here." 02/01/2011

Chicago Sun-Times
"Bardem, who received a best actor Oscar nomination for BIUTIFUL, is a vastly human actor....Here he suffers, and is good, and suffers partly simply because he cannot do good things." 01/26/2011

USA Today
"Iñárritu is a filmmaker drawn to dark, layered tales. His collaboration with the soulful Bardem is an inspired one." 01/28/2011

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[F]erocious filmmaking, directed with lyrical austerity and played with conviction." 03/01/2011

The Hollywood Reporter 9 of 10
Understand that Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Biutiful" has a strong, linear narrative drive. Nevertheless, and most of all, it's a gorgeous, melancholy tone poem about love, fatherhood and guilt. Some scenes are absolutely wrenching to behold. Others hit home with a punch to the solar plexus. Spain -- and Barcelona to be specific -- has beckoned forth the wistful poet in the Mexican-born filmmaker. His response to this summons is a film that, while about death, is teeming with life in all its tangled messiness...Javier Bardem, delivers a knockout performance as a hero whose last days are detailed with Joycean elan, filled with ambiguity, contradictions and lyricism."Biutiful" will require several viewings for the film to yield a complete portrait of its mysterious, flawed hero. Because for all the complexity of his previous films, with fractured, multiple narratives and an array of international characters, this in many ways is Inarritu's most intricate study yet of the human condition. - Kirk Honeycutt
