Go To

Biutiful is a movie by Alejandro González Iñárritu. It stars Javier Bardem as Uxbal, a man attempting to support himself and his two children while dealing with the dilemmas brought upon him by his illicit occupation and his bipolar ex-wife. 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 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 Tearjerker would make up. [[/note]]
