After having globe-trotted with “Babel”, I thought I had explored enough multiple lines, fractured structures and crossing narratives. Each of the films I have made has been shot in a different language, in a different country. At the end of “Babel”, I was so exhausted I made it a point that my next film would be about just one character, with one point of view, in one single city, with a straight narrative line and in my own native language. Using a musical analogy, if Babel was an opera, “Biutiful” is a requiem… and here I am. “Biutiful” is all that I haven’t done: a linear story whose characters shape the narrative in an unexplored genre for me: the tragedy.
