New domestic trailer for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Biutiful is beautiful
I've been hearing a lot of positive talk in regards to Alejandro González Iñárritu's (BABEL, AMORES PERROS) latest drama BIUTIFUL. And if this first domestic trailer we're seeing is any indication, then we're in for a very moving drama with gorgeous cinematography, all fueled by what looks to be a truly powerful performance from the great Javier Bardem (he already won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year).
BIUTIFUL opens in limited release on December 29th. Watch the trailer below or in HD over at Apple.
Synopsis: Biutiful is a love story between a father and his children. This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona. His livelihood is earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds. Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins. As fate encircles him and thresholds are crossed, a dim, redemptive road brightens, illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child, and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life's corridors, whether bright, bad - or biutiful.
|Extra Tidbit:||BIUTIFUL's odd title is simply the Spanish phonetic spelling of the English word "beautiful".|
