Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dans la veine des réalisations latino-américaines destinées à un vaste public et soutenues financièrement par les États-Unis, Y tu mamá también, du Mexicain Alfonso Cuarón, est un road movie particulièrement percutant, dont l’apparente légèreté ne sert qu’à masquer un fond beaucoup plus acide.

Lorsque Julio et Tenoch, deux adolescents désœuvrés de conditions sociales différentes, rencontrent Luisa, une ravissante jeune femme espagnole, ils décident de lui faire visiter le Mexique en l’emmenant vers une plage imaginaire qu’ils surnomment la Bouche du paradis. Guidé essentiellement par ses désirs, ce trio amoureux verra rapidement les dessous troubles de sa liberté de façade se révéler au grand jour.

Grâce à une réalisation nerveuse et à des acteurs frais et envoûtants (Maribel Verdú, Diego Luna et Gael García Bernal, qui avait déjà soutenu l’excellent Amores Perros), ce Jules et Jim piquant et ambigu, parfois féroce, est une virée excessive où le passage à l’âge adulte est envisagé comme un véritable rite initiatique, auquel amour et amitié ne peuvent réellement résister. Ce constat amer est tout de même tempéré par des scènes vives et fortes où éclatent toute l’insouciance et la fougue de la jeunesse. Malgré une voix hors champ parfois mal intégrée et une fin quelque peu prévisible, Y tu mamá también reste une surprise cinématographique insolente et sensuelle. --Helen Faradji

OK, the movie has a lot of sex in it, and the characters talk about sex a lot. If that bothers you, I suggest you don't watch it.

But to say the movie is the Mexican equivalent of "American Pie" or "Porky's" is absurd. I'm pretty sure the director's goals were to produce something a bit more artistic than that. And to call the movie "pedophilistic", as one reviewer did! - the boys in question have graduated from high school and appear in fact to be men. And the woman they're travelling with is 29, hardly the pathetic older woman of one review. Plus it is Mexico, not Spain.

The movie is set in Mexico and is a meditation about and/or indictment of the huge class disparities of the country, and an examination of how Mexico is modernizing. It's about sex, too, of course - I got out of it that behind the macho posturing of many men, there is a yearning for closeness and connection with other men, which they cannot acknowledge. Except sometimes, when they're drunk, for example, as in the scene in this movie that so bothered some reviewers.

The movie is well-made, the dialogue is interesting - the characters actually talk, not just give enough info to move the plot along, as in so many action films - the acting is excellent, and you get to see a lot of Mexico, both the city and the country, the rich, the poor, and the middle-class.

On the technical side, the DVD transfer seems fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but overhyped May 31 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I thought that this was a good but not great movie, certainly not a waste of time but a let-down after the extreme hype surrounding it. If I had discovered this movie by accident, with no prior knowledge when I watched it, I might feel differently. After hearing so much effusive praise for a film, however, you can't help but go in with very high expectations.
The thing that bothered me most about this movie was that the two teenage boys who serve as its focus did not ring particularly true. Critics seemed to praise Y Tu Mama Tambien for its unflinchingly realistic portrayal of adolescence, but I found this to be more of an adult's conception of teenage life. The portrayal of Tenoch and Julio relies on an endless stream of fart jokes, drug references and sexual banter to highlight their teenage status, but misses the more subtle nuances that make adolescence its own unique and interesting world. Having been a teenager not very long ago, I have to say that I didn't relate to this aspect of the movie.
Other than that, a nice way to spend a lazy afternoon. Just don't go in with sky-high expectations after reading all of the hype.

From all the acclaim this film got outside of its native land, you'd think this would be some stirring masterpiece.In truth, I did enjoy this film quite a bit, and perhaps would've enjoyed it even more if it hadn't been so hyped up.It is well acted, and has a nice organic feel to it.It is lightly funny, and almost always engaging.It features lush views of mexican culture, and natural landscapes.
That said, this movie doesn't really have much to offer on an emotional or mental level.Two lusty 18 year old guys take along a sexy older women on a road trip. Sex is handled with nowhere near the taste and tenderness as it was in the 2001 superb Spanish film, Sex and Lucia. That said, I don't believe that this (...) was supposed to be tender or anything.But the wild romps really didn't add any sort of feeling or effect to the film, and throughout, I kind of got the feeling that the director wanted to show how sensually fearless he and his cast could be.
I feel that if this movie wasn't hyped up so much, I would've taken it for what it was, and enjoyed it: a light,entertaining, and well-filmed road movie thats a good weekend movie to watch in bed, but not much else.

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't understand the hype. April 6 2004
Format:DVD
Having heard great things about this movie, and being generally open to foreign movies, I was looking forward to it quite a bit. Sadly, I was very disappointed. As my wife put it, this movie is a cross between an Italian sex comedy and a 70s-vintage German drama. The bad parts of Italian sex comedy and 70s-vintage German drama.
As a character study with very little plot, it fails; the boys are self-absorbed, spoiled and unlikeable, and the older woman they covet is a cipher who we never really get to know, despite the endless talking. She is just the McGuffin, something for the boys to lust after and fight about and then find themselves. I guess they found themselves; the movie just sputters to a halt and I never felt like we had any closure. For this movie to work, you have to care about the characters, and I just never got to the point where I cared about them at all. Indeed, to echo another reviewer, when they turned down a dirt road when they werelost, I found myself hoping they would ride into an ambush just so the movie would be over. In that sense, I cared about them in a negative way, but I don't think that's what the movie was shooting for.
I didn't object to the sex or the nudity. Indeed, by and large, it was anything but erotic. I suspect it was a more realistic depiction of young adult sex than what we see in Hollywood movies, and as such if the MPAA ever allowed such scenes in American films, young women would never have sex again. I did object to the fact that there wasn't a single bodily fluid we didn't get to see. Be forewarned: to borrow a phrase from Seinfeld, this is a pee party.
The best part of this DVD is the 12-minute short film (apparently a student film of the director's) in the Special Features.

This is a good coming of age movie and I have watched it several times. The story says as much as the teens lives as it does the society of Mexico
