The film follows Uxbal (Bardem), an and devoted single dad, through his attempts to reconcile with a past and secure a future for his children as his own death draws near.
The film is one of five productions in a $100 million deal between González Iñárritu, Alfonso Cuarón, and Guillermo del Toro, as well as the film companies Cha Cha Cha, Universal Pictures, and Focus Features International.

A steady accretion of harrowing details, Biutiful represents something of a departure for Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, even as it confirms the pervasive bleakness of his worldview. Calling it a “less invested in themes of fate and convergence than his previous work, this gritty, slow-burning melodrama nonetheless offers a very long descent into a private purgatory, and its scant emotional rewards can't shake off the sense of a prodigiously gifted filmmaker stuck in a grim rut.” On Javier Bardem, Sean Penn called it the “best performance since Brando in The Last Tango in Paris.”

The film competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2010 . It premiered at Cannes on May 17, 2010, with Bardem winning for Best Actor, an award shared with Elio Germano for La Nostra Vita.

The film has been selected as the Mexican entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 83rd Academy Awards. It has also been nominated at the 16th Critics' Choice Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the 68th Golden Globe Awards for Best Foreign Film. On December 17, 2010, the film was named Best Foreign Language Film of 2010 at the 17th Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association Awards.
