Film trailer: Javier Bardem in 'Biutiful'
Tuesday 19 October 2010
Biutiful was hailed as one of the best films at the Cannes Film Festival and its star Javier Bardem's performance as Oscar-worthy. It is finally scheduled for release in theaters with a second trailer released Monday.
The previous trailer featured a lyrical voice-over narration with scenes from the film. This version opens with much of the same imagery from the film, but in a fast-paced montage, that slows down to depict the unfolding storyline.
Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu ( Babel, 21 Grams), Biutiful shows Bardem ( No Country For Old Men) as Uxbal, a conflicted man with cancer who faces his mortality. A single father of two children, whose former wife can't take care of their children, he must make things right as his time runs out, while reconciling his dangerous life in Barcelona's underworld.
Opening in France October 20, followed by Mexico and Norway. In December is releasing in Spain, Israel, and the US - on the 29th, in time for Oscar eligibility.
