Synopsis


Y Tu Mamá También
Mexican-born, New York-based filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón directed this Mexican box-office smash hit about a pair of randy upper-class buddies that sparked some controversy for its frank depiction of drug use and sexual exploration. With their respective girlfriends away in Europe, Julio (Gael García Bernal) and his upper-class friend Tenoch (Diego Luna) are looking forward to a summer full of drink, drugs, and cheap meaningless sex. During a wedding, they meet Luisa (Maribel Verdú) -- the 28-year-old wife of Tenoch's scholarly cousin -- and try to convince her to go on a road trip to Heaven's Mouth, a made-up beach paradise the two claim is on the Oaxacan coast. To their surprise, Luisa -- who is looking to escape her troubled life for a spell -- agrees to go along. Two days into the trip, tension starts to build between the two friends: Luisa has had sex with each, and now both lads are not-so-quietly vying for her affection. Soon simmering jealousies boil over into savage arguments, threatening to completely destroy their friendship. After an enormously successful run in Mexico and Guatemala, this film was screened to much acclaim at the 2001 Venice, Toronto, and New York Film Festivals. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

    After 13 years, the wait 4 HD has been worthwhile

    I was a young man when I first watched Alfonso Cuaron's fantastic movie. This opened doors to him that hopefully have not culminated a career with a Best Director win at this years Academy Awards for Gravity. The movie holds your attention and feels like it's aging very well. I recommend this movie to anyone wanting to explore how unique a style both visually and in his storytelling, Alfonso had way before Harry Potter came knocking.

    After waiting for Cuaron to finish Gravity and approve their Blu-Ray, Criterion finally adds Y tu Mama Tambien to the collection. It was worth the wait. This disc blows the old DVD out of the water and carries most (although not all) of the extras over. One note: be careful if you have this shipped, because the set is packaged in a digipack and can be crushed if you aren't careful.

    THIS MOVIE CAN BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME PEOPLE, BECAUSE ITS CONTENT IS STRONG. THE MOVIE IS ABOUT TWO MEXICAN GUYS WHO MET A SPANISH GIRL DOWN IN MEXICO(NOTE, I SAID SPANISH GIRL, NOT MEXICAN). THEY TOOK HER ON A TRIP TO THE BEACH. THE MOVIES HAS THE STORIES THAT THEY LIVED IN THE TRIP.

    This is a powerful and touching film from the director of "Gravity" though the two films could not be more different. This NC-17 rated story of love, friendship and the fragile nature of life is funny, endearing, bittersweet and tragic. Kind of like life.

    This movie is one of my all-time favorites. It's beautifully shot and incredibly well-acted. The two young leads are talented beyond their years and the entire film seems to be bathed in a haze of romantic light that will leave a lasting impression.

    Inequality

    Too often a blind eye is turned in the face of injustice, or even sometimes it can't even be perceived when directly confronted due to one's own bias.
