to leave a review for Biutiful
My greatest challenge was figuring out the location. I learned that it was Barcelona. I haven't been in Barcelona since 1966 and there were no slums. I spent most of my time near the Spanish Riviera, camped on the shore. Has Barcelona actually deteriorated to that degree? The film wasn't subtle.
How crtiics gave this movie three stars I don't get. Bardem is truly a gifted actor. You felt him in this movie. I was enthralled from beginning to end. Same crtics probably who gave Burlesque two stars. Thank god I do not listen to critics

Some found it hackneyed and unbelievable. Yeah, and? It made me all sniffly---not that that takes much.
