Biutiful (2010)
6/10
Good movie, but IMDb description is very misleading
8 January 2013
Biutiful is a film that very accurately portrays life as it really is and not as Hollywood wants it to be. It shows how depressing and unpleasant life can be for the average person whose problems outweigh his happy moments, with a small metaphysical twist. However, this small metaphysical twist is exactly where my concern lays. The description IMDb offers of "a man living in this world, but able to see his death, which guides his every move" is very misleading. I was expecting a film with supernatural elements which would mostly deal with metaphysical and para-psychological matters. Instead, this film is bluntly realistic and down to earth, with a tiny hint of surrealism in the form of a paranormal gift owned by the protagonist, which plays a very minor role in the film. That being said, although I did enjoy the film, it was not what I expected to see.
