images are still strong on my mind as I remember scenes from the film, "Biutiful" starring Javier Bardem (probably well known for Vicky Christina Barcelona) You really don't know what you expect from this movie, especially if you arrive a few minutes into the movie, like my cousin and I did. As my cousin commented, Javier seems to naturally live in the reality that he is portraying, you start to believe that this story is his and he is living every moment in it.
Is death or life the focus? Forgiveness or love? It's messy, it's complex, and isn't that just what reality is?

I just know that, I've never been so confused about a story as I was in this one, yet it was fantastic.

"Papa, how do you spell, "beautiful?"
"Just like it sounds. B-I-U-T-I-F-U-L."
