A horrifyingly heartbreaking story that reminds me just how easy my existence has been. To face the hardships that are reality for others tears me apart. May I always be appreciative of my well being and sympathetic to those I meet that are less fortunate.
The story of a man in free fall, Uxbal struggles to live with his kids while fights against a terminal disease and the consequences of living into a criminal world. What is so powerfull about this character, is that his father figure is very sweet and emotional regardless of all his bad actions. Alejandro Gonzalez inarritu brings us a depressing movie, but still beautiful with a marvelous perform of Javier Bardem.
