30 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

A divorced man with two children learns he has terminal cancer with months to live, but makes no effort to plan for his children's future. It's hard to feel sympathy for such a selfish person. It is not clear what his job is, but it involves a funeral home, black drug dealers, illegal Chinese immigrants, and gay Chinese businessmen. The presentation is confusing and increasingly dreary. Little more than a collection of random scenes, it quickly becomes so tiresome that one roots for Bardem to die so that the film can end. However, it goes on and on for what seems like three hours. It is hard to believe that the man who made "Amores Perros" and "Babel" is responsible for this mess.
