I'm not in the business of giving advice here. But the sake of your overall wellbeing and peace of mind, I'm going to break with tradition. To say only:

If you're in the market for some light-hearted fun and cinematic froth, don't be tempted to watch the chirpily titled Biutiful.

It does boast the very beautiful Javier Bardem amongst its cast. But about there - and a distant viewing of the Sagrada Familia under scaffolding - the biuty ends.

I seem to remember B S Neill warning me off this much-lauded work of cinematography. I would have done well to heed his words before spending two hours and twenty minutes of my Friday night in the company of the (spoiler alert) universally unfortunate.
