  Look like winners? Judging from the large theme by Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new film biutiful, you have to answer this question well decided. Uxbal (played by Javier Bardem) is a crook from Barcelona, with various deals and semi-hard to keep illegal business afloat. He lives apart from his wife Maramba (Maricel Alvarez), who suffers from bipolar disorder, and lovingly cares for his two children Ana and Mateo. But then he can ignore the pain in the abdomen, which he has for several months, and no longer comes to a doctor, give him a few investigations, the message must be that he has prostate cancer in an advanced stage and that he only a few months remain to live. Shocked by the terrible news Uxbal trying to get to be rather chaotic life in order and to provide for his children a reasonably tolerable future. But failure of all attempts lead to dead ends and make sure that Uxbal only invites more blame, as he unwittingly makes the deaths of 25 illegal immigrants. Even the attempt to reconcile with Maramba and out of it still make a good and responsible mother, is not crowned with success. And it must go Uxbal with the knowledge to his death, that he almost could not settle all his affairs. Biutiful despite its rather serene title Iñárritu’s been depressing and gloomy film – a depressing drama, which shows Uxbals Barcelona of a page, how to get to see the city rarely. Dirty, depraved and full of lost souls looking for salvation, is the metropolis no longing, but rather a symbol of hell on earth. Unusually straightforward and without the nesting of his previous films, the director describes the way his protagonist as a downward spiral in which there is little room for hope. And yet there are scenes and moments full of confidence and compassion, no highlights in this sea of gloom. With more economical, but as always, incredibly intense music and a leading actor Javier Bardem, who for the second time in the sea is impressive in me a Totgeweihten counts, this film so far to the promising candidates for a Golden Palm at Cannes. Here is what the story of a young rogue and great music at the end of the big winners of 63 Cannes Film Festival include. Perhaps that would be a kind of poetic justice for the immense suffering of Uxbal, whose death and his desperate struggle we have moved to tears. (Joachim Kurz)
