Javier Bardem stars in this unflinching, heartfelt story from the director of AMORES PERROS and BABEL. Uxbal (Bardem) is a dedicated father of two small children who is struggling to make ends meet. Balancing a day job overseeing illegal immigrants who sell counterfeit merchandise with off-hours work as a spiritual medium who channels the recently deceased, Uxbal has his hands full at home as well – with his wife, Marambra, in the throws of mental illness. But when Uxbal receives some shocking news about his own health, he is forced to rethink life, death – and everything in between – in this powerful, acclaimed tale of redemption from writer/director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

Critics Consensus: Javier Bardem's searing performance helps to elevate Biutiful, as does Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's craftsmanship, but the film often lapses into contrivance and grimness.
