Biutiful

Following his Best Director win for “Babel” at the 2006 edition of Cannes, Oscar nominee Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu is expected to bring his first film entirely in Spanish since his breakout “Amores Perros.” And his first time working with Spain’s hottest export, Javier Bardem. Not much is known about the plot, apart from Bardem playing a man embroiled in shady dealings who is confronted by a childhood friend, who now happens to be a policeman.

Amores Perros

Three interconnected stories about the different strata of life in Mexico City all resolve with a fatal car accident. Octavio is trying to raise enough money to run away with his sister-in-law, and decides to enter his dog Cofi into the world of dogfighting. After a dogfight goes bad, Octavio flees in his car, running a red light and causing the accident. Daniel and Valeria’s new-found bliss is prematurely ended when she loses her leg in the accident. El Chivo is a homeless man who cares for stray dogs and is there to witness the collision. Amores Perros is the first film in Iñárritu’s “Death Trilogy”.

21 Grams

This is the story of three gentle persons: Paul Rivers an ailing mathematician lovelessly married to an English émigré, Christina Peck, an upper-middle-class suburban housewife, happily married and mother of two little girls, and Jack Jordan, an ex-convict who has found in his Christian faith the strength to raise a family. They will be brought together by a terrible accident that will change their lives. By the final frame, none of them will be the same as they will learn harsh truths about love, faith, courage, desire and guilt, and how chance can change our worlds irretrievably, forever.
