New Trailer For Iñárritu's BIUTIFUL
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu has been one of those directors who has slowly gained a larger following in recent years. His most recognizable works amongst the mainstream audience would be AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS, and BABEL, all movies about certain aspects of the human condition interwoven with gorgeous cinematography. After seeing the trailer for his next movie, BIUTIFUL, it doesn’t appear like that trend will be stopping anytime soon.
BIUTIFUL revolves around a Barcelona man, played by Javier Bardem (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN), who makes a living anyway he can, usually involving the providing of cheap labor to sweatshops and managing the sale of black market goods. While either of those are stressful enough, he is also providing for his mentally ill wife and two children. During the course of the film, Bardem’s character learns that he has terminal cancer, a fact revealed through visions of ghosts of those he has indirectly harmed in his bid for money.
Not your typical “Ghost Story” but one worthy of a look through. BIUTIFUL is currently making it’s way through the festival circuit with fans hoping for a wide-release in the coming months.
