Biutiful is a movie by Creator/AlejandroGonzalezInarritu. It stars Creator/JavierBardem as Uxbal, a man attempting to support himself and his two children while dealing with the dilemmas brought upon him by his illicit occupation, his bipolar ex-wife, and [[spoiler: the cancer rapidly eating away at his life.]] The movie has received decent reviews, even being nominated for two UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s (Best Foreign Film and Best Actor for Bardem), though some criticized the overly dark themes present in the movie. [[note]] A more detailed description of the plot is that it's about Uxbal, an ex-orphan who's now a poor single parent struggling to raise his two kids in their shabby apartment in a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack]] depiction of Barcelona while also staying away from his bipolar, alcoholic ex-wife. He works for a mob where his occupation is smuggling illegal immigrants into Barcelona. And he can communicate with the dead. And he has terminal cancer. It almost feels like something [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Tearjerker]] would make up. [[/note]]
