This seems to be the week for Oscar-nominated foreign-language films for me.  And this is another film I would recommend.   I had seen and liked Babel by Mexican Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. And I enjoyed this latest one.

The movies takes place in Barcelona, but not the Barcelona I know as a tourist.  This Barcelona was gritty, with all sorts of people scrabbling for a living.  At times depressing, this move again uplifted because of the strength of the character played by Javier Bardem. 

I'd recommend this film.
