New Biutiful trailer released

Cannes 2010 - A short promo for Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful, playing in competition on the Croisette this year, is now available.

This isn't really a trailer so much as a collection of short pieces of footage, but with the film still lacking a UK release date, we'll take what we can get.

Starring Javier Bardem, Biutiful follows a single father and low-level criminal who discovers he is dying, and struggles to confront his own mortality - and the fear that his two children will be left to the care of their abusive mother.

About as harrowing as you'd expect from Iñárritu, then, but frankly he had us at Bardem.

Looking forward to Biutiful ?
