What do the critics think?


7 reviews of Biutiful (2010)

  • 1. Aftonbladet
    8 / 10

    A pitch-black story that still goes straight to the heart. It is impossible not to empathize with Javier Bardem's increasingly despondent gaze as he defiantly continues to fight to try to give his children a better life than he had himself. - Jan-Olov Andersson

    One recognizes the masterful craftsmanship and the emotional exhaustion that one as a viewer can feel afterwards, but "Biutiful" is still a darker, more original, and, in my impression, a more personal film. - Jake Bolin

    I live, I am healthy, I have two awesome kids and a damn nice hotel blanket. When the movie is over, it's status quo for me. It's not for Uxbal.

    6 / 10

    A harrowing depiction of people at the absolute bottom of society careens wildly between melodrama, manipulative sentimentality, and dirty, excessive realism. - Emma Gray Munthe

    5 / 10

    There is something about children and parenting that worries the Mexican Alejandro González Iñárritu. One wants to do so well, but still finds oneself guilty of serious neglect when circumstances beyond one's control put one under severe pressure. - Jan Söderqvist

    The story is unsettling but becomes a great film through the storytelling method. Iñárritu composes shot by shot, cut by cut. - Bernt Eklund
