Apple has unveiled a brand trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s new movie Biutiful, starring Javier Bardem.
The movie sees Bardem as criminal, but also a loving father trying to do right by his children, and the conflict that those two opposing lifestyles have on his soul.
The movie has been doing the rounds at festivals worldwide and has been garnering great praise both for the visual style and Bardem’s moving performance.
Biutiful is released in Ireland January 14th.
Biutiful is a love story between a father and his children. This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona. His livelihood is earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds. Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins. As fate encircles him and thresholds are crossed, a dim, redemptive road brightens, illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child, and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life’s corridors, whether bright, bad – or biutiful.
