Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu writes and directs this compelling Spanish drama set in Barcelona about a father's love for his children amidst a life of poverty and crime. Javier Bardem stars.
Javier Bardem stars as Uxbal, a black-market trader, psychic medium and single father of two who learns that he is dying of terminal cancer, with weeks to live.
He is a man of two sides – a doting, affectionate father, and the head of an organised crime group, involved in a range of dealings from drugs to construction.
Unlike his partners, Hai and Tito, his impulsive brother, he tries to treat those around him with dignity even as he trades in human misery.
Amidgst the dim, rough backstreets of the city, Uxbal searches for redemption for the bad things he has done in his life and make arrangements for his two children and his estranged, mentally unstable, alcoholic wife, Marambra, to survive after his death.
