The trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Biutiful has landed online. The film stars Javier Bardem and he’s already getting buzzed for Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance. This trailer is interesting although it doesn’t tell you much about the film. However, it’s tough to sell me on Iñárritu since I don’t think he’s made a good film since Amores Perros. Hopefully, Biutiful will break the streak.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and synopsis. Biutiful opens on December 29th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Biutiful:
Biutiful is a love story between a father and his children. This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona. His livelihood is earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds. Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins. As fate encircles him and thresholds are crossed, a dim, redemptive road brightens, illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child, and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life’s corridors, whether bright, bad – or biutiful.
