Writing in Collider.com, Christina Radish calls Biutiful “a love story between a father and his children and the unexpected journey that life can take us on.” Highlights of the interview include…
On the character of Uxbal: “He probably came from a question that has to do with what I would do if I had 75 days left to live,” Iñárritu says. “What would be important? I think that was the trigger thought behind Uxbal.”
On how Biutiful differs from his previous films (Amores Perros, Babel, 21 Grams): “The first three films that I did were more plot-driven films and the events were what was moving the story forward. In this case, I wanted it to be a character-driven film. The character is the one who is navigating and things are moved by him. I liked that. That’s the way I wanted to tell this story. It depends on the story that I will tell. Every story has to find the best way to be told.”
